Lots of Nice Wineries in Ct.

As a home wine and beer maker I frequent lots of wineries and have been to almost every single one. Almost every one ha great whites and fruit wines but only a few have decent reds as this terroir just doesnt have a long and hot enough climate for most. Here is a complete list of the CT. wine trail and its a great way to spend a weekend hitting quite a few.

I agree with you Wade. We started hitting the trail a couple of years ago. It is great to see the wines evolve and get better every year. We just did a 6 vineyard limo tour in the northwest hills this past weekend. It was awesome!!

We only need 2 more vineyards to complete the wine passport for the wine trip giveaway. I highly recommend it to anyone, no matter what your level of wine knowledge. Get out there, see CT and support the local farms and wineries!

We've been to McLaughlin in Sandy Hook a couple of times. It's a beautiful place to hang out. They have live music pretty often and the wines are decent. I can't say we were blown away by the wines. Most of them were on the sweet side and the reds were a little weak in the knees like any red grown in CT. That being said, the wine is certainly drinkable and it's such a nice place, it's well worth the visit.
