Miranda Vineyards

Miranda Vineyard is Goshen’s first vineyard and is ideally located in the rolling Litchfield Hills near scenic two-lane highways, covered bridges, antique shops and historic inns.

Miranda Vineyard was planted in 2001 and first opened to the public May of 2007. Its bright and airy tasting room and large exterior deck make an excellent place to sit, relax, have a glass of wine and enjoy the company of good friends. The Vineyard is two hours from New York City and only an hour from the Hartford area. A visit to the area with its famous autumn foliage, historic sights and many wineries makes a great day trip or romantic weekend getaway.

Vintner, Manny Miranda, has taken Old World techniques passed down through his family for generations and perfected them by applying the latest modern technological advances. The results are hand-crafted, small batch wines for the discerning connoisseur. Picnics are welcome. Check website www.mirandavineyard.com for hours and events. Live Music every Sunday year round.
