Explorer Ponce de León abandoned his quest to discover the mythical land of wine after a tumble into the Fountain of Youth left him eternally underage. Take up his journey with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get a two-person outing to Haight-Brown Vineyard’s annual harvest festival in Litchfield on September 17–18 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. (up to a $30 total value). Children 10 and younger receive free admission. The outing includes the following items:

  • Two admissions to one day of the festival
  • A complimentary wine tasting for two
  • Two free souvenir wine glasses

Haight-Brown Vineyard invites guests to snack on grapes and explore 10 scenic acres atop historic Chestnut Hill at the 32nd annual harvest festival. Groupon holders can cultivate an earthy glow by catching fireflies in their souvenir wine glasses or using the vessels to sip picnic red, railway white, and other wines made from Haight-Brown grapes. Apples from a nearby farm lend a crisp finish and notes of doctor-repellent to handcrafted apple-cranny wine, and classic chardonnay complements a homemade picnic. In addition to tasting the wines, visitors may tour the vineyard and cellar, admiring nascent fruit and oak-barrel runway fashions. After taking in the scenic surroundings on a hayride, families can rehearse for upcoming tap-dance revues at a rollicking grape stomp. Magic shows will solicit awestruck looks, and food vendors such as Sweet Thyme Catering and Blue Moon Farms will appease grumbling bellies with barbecue and locally sourced burgers (food not included in today’s deal; offerings average $5–$15). Instead of knitting sweaters for the entire crowd, troubadours Carlos Gonzales and Bob Semanchik will warm up revelers by serenading them with comforting melodies.

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 tasting was very good. The woman described the wines and the vineyard well. The cheese was excellent, paired well with the reds. The atmosphere is very nice. We would like to try the train express they offer sometime too.
