Connecticut Wine Festival Map

Want to get out and taste great wines in the great state of Connecticut? Then look for a a Connecticut Wine Festival! Some of Connecticut's most notable wine festivals are the Sun WineFest held in January and the Connecticut Wine Festival held in late July and feature exceptional local wine growers and world renowned chefs and culinary experts. These wine events are a perfect way to fill a sunny Saturday or Sunday afternoon. Local Connecticut wineries and restaurants set up booths and dispense their special wines for you to taste and buy. It's a great way to sample a wide variety of wines in one fun-filled place. At most festivals you can expect to pay a nominal entrance fee that then allows you to sample all the wines offered at the event. Others sell tasting tickets that you can use at your tasting discretion. Located in and around cities like Hartford, Torrington, East Hartford and Danielson, there are wine festivals that bring you the best samplings of CT wines. Many specialize in fine CT wines as well as national and international wines. At every booth you can expect to find helpful and friendly wine experts eager to answer your questions.

You may find wines from Jonathan Edwards Winery, St Hilary's Vineyard, Land of Nod Winery, and many others at Connecticut wine festivals. In addition to wine, these events can include excellent food to sample, prepared by local restaurants and chefs. And often you can expect music too. After all, nothing pairs better with wine than a little Jazz, or Blue Grass music. Local musicians are out playing their best music to accompany the wine tasting. Whether you're visiting Bridgeport, Danbury, Middletown and Mystic you can find a local wine, food and music festival that will perfect your CT vacation. The most popular time of year for these festivals are the Fall and Summer months, but they are also scheduled during holiday months as well. Imagine sipping some great wines while watching the annual Christmas Tree lighting ceremony! So although, you may not have time to visit all of Connecticut's great wineries, you can taste their wines at these great events. So get out and enjoy!
