  • Arrigoni Winery
    As the sun rises and falls on the Connecticut River Valley, its rays streak across the trellised vineyards of Arrigoni Winery. The winery creates a variety of crisp whites and luscious reds, both characterized by their soft, approachable fruit flavors. In addition to these traditional offerings, the vintner also makes wines blended from orchard-fresh apples, tart cranberries, and even maple syrup. After enjoying a glass of wine on the scenic outdoor patio, visitors are encouraged to peruse the onsite gift shop?s collection of Yankee Candles, wine-themed presents, and baby photos of budding grape clusters.

  • Haight-Brown Vineyard
    Since opening in 1975, Haight-Brown Vineyard has churned out 2,000 cases of grape-based libations each year from its nearly 10-acre vineyard and welcomed visitors into its rustic, cottage-like wine house. Emphasizing vinifera and French hybrid grapes, the state?s first-established winery creates a selection of wines that include the Big Red, a bold syrah; the Morning Harvest, a rich malbec; and Honey Nut Apple, a traditional apple wine that incorporates local honey and cinnamon. Vintners share their time-tested expertise during regular classes that teach aspiring oenophiles about a variety of vintages and techniques for cheese and chocolate pairing. Amid the tasting room?s wood accents and crackling stone fireplace, customers sample vintages and attempt to describe taste sensations with adjectives such as ?silky? or ?very different from milk.?

  • The Crush Club
    Located in the quaint town of Wallingford, Connecticut, The Crush Club gives visitors the opportunity to make their own wine. Grapes are sourced from across the globe?from Chile during the spring and from California, Washington, and Italy during the fall. Over the course of a year, students crush and press grapes, clean their barrels, then bottle, cork, and custom label the resulting wine before taking it home with them. During blending experience classes, participants taste five different wines, learn about the winemaking process, and experiment to create their own blend, custom labeling and bringing home one 750mL bottle.

  • Overshores Brewing Co
    An ardent devotee of Belgian beers, entrepreneur Christian Amport turned his passion into a business in early 2014: he opened Overshores Brewing Company in East Haven, knowing that his Belgian-style brewery would do things a bit differently. First of all, it would churn out beers that are bottle-conditioned?that is, carbonated through the natural aging of yeast, rather than with forced carbon dioxide. Secondly, Overshores would make all of its beers available in 750ml bottles. This decision reflected Christian's belief that beer is meant to be shared amongst family and friends, much like Thanksgiving dinner or a video of grandma breakdancing. And indeed, today's beer enthusiasts can share a bottle at the Overshores facility, which serves up more than a dozen bottle-conditioned Belgian beers and hosts tours throughout the week.

  • Broad Brook Brewing Company
    In September 2010, a trio of beer-brewing buds joined forces to form Broad Brook Brewing Company. By February of the next year, their ales and lagers had netted ribbons at several regional and national contests. By July, the team was already dreaming up its own taproom. These days, that taproom hosts rotating drafts of year-round, seasonal, and specialty beers, ranging from IPAs made with seven hop varieties to imperial ales brewed with local honey. A menu highlights nearby restaurants that deliver grub, and tours showcase the 15-barrel system that yields each of the microbrewery?s batches. For patrons that can?t stick around, bartenders fill growlers with to-go brews, a less sticky alternative to pouring beer into your cupped hands.
