The Connecticut Wine Trail

Want to know more about The Connecticut wine trail? It’s a unique collection of twenty-five vineyards, each ready to welcome you with hospitality and exceptional award winning wines. The trail is divided into two sections, East and West. The wineries and vineyards of the Connecticut Wine Trail are all members of the Connecticut Vineyard and Winery Association. This organization is dedicated to the development and promotion of Connecticut as a wine producing region. The collective efforts of the CVWA increase awareness and appreciation for the quality wines produced in Connecticut. To fully enjoy the Wine Trail, plan a few weekends to experience all that each winery has to offer. Visit www.ctwine.com to help plan your trip and see where the trail leads you.
