If you want to go for the experience, view, and wine tasting don't expect very good wine. But that's typical of Connecticut wines. It's a fun at a pretty location.

Happened to be in the area and stopped by. Very mediocre wines at best with an artificial aftertaste; none were outstanding. Nice outdoor seating and space when the weather is nice. Friendly staff.

Stopped by to get out passport stamped and have some wine. Friendly greeting. Delicious wines. Love the picnic red and the covertside white. The cheese plate goes great with the wines. Worth a stop.
