Vineyards and Breweries in the Northwest Hills of Connecticut

The only thing better than drinking a terrific glass of wine or beer, is drinking a terrific, locally crafted beverage…and we have both!  You can meander the Connecticut Wine Trail or the Connecticut Beer Trail, both of which pass through our 8 Towns for your enjoyment.  Go for a tasting and help support our local craft beverage businesses – your tastebuds will thank you.
