    Haight-Brown Vineyards

    As one of the first area wineries, Haight-Brown has had time to perfect their great wine tradition and it shows. In addition to offering some of the best wines New England has to offer, they also hold a lot of varied and fun events, including an annual festival.

    Connecticut Wine Trail

    As Connecticut is one of the fastest-growing wine destinations in the United States, there’s no reason to just stick to one winery! The Connecticut Vineyard and Winery Association put up roadside signs to assist in navigating between all of the 25 wineries in the area.
