Take a CT Wine Tour

Now that the weather is getting cooler, I know everyone is itching to get out of the house and do something that won’t break the bank. Whether it's a bachelorette party, a birthday, a date or simply a get together with friends to celebrate life, try a wine tour! Did you know there are 34 wineries in Connecticut to choose from?!

There are 4 wineries in Fairfield County, 2 in Hartford County, 9 in Litchfield County, 3 in Middlesex County, 5 in New Haven County, 8 in New London County, 1 in Tolland County and 2 in Windham County. If you want to do a winery tour, it’s easier to pick a couple that are in the same county or relatively close together so you don’t waste too much time getting from one location to the next. If you are in a big party, be sure to call ahead to try to plan your visits and make sure the vineyards will be able to accommodate you.

Beat the crowds! Get an early start so you can have the best experience possible! Once large numbers of people arrive it’s harder to get personal attention, plus sometimes you may feel crammed into a small space, especially if you are with a larger group.

On a tight budget? Some wineries even allow you to bring your own food. After you're done with your tour or tasting, enjoy a glass of their wine with your own food. Be sure to find out which wineries allow outside food and plan your trip accordingly.

While planning your wine tour, remember to be safe, no drinking and driving!
