Looking for some fun things to do in Connecticut? It's time to get out of the house!During these cold winter months, it becomes increasingly more difficult to find something fun to do to break up the day! Why not visit some of our local Connecticut wineries? Not every winery is open year round, but if you head on up to the Litchfield Hills you will find some beautiful options, and the wine isn't too shabby either! You can even plan a day out in style with your friends or family for that special occasion. Visit 3 separate wineries, have a picnic lunch and take a limo or party bus of your choice! All you have to do is visit http://www.connecticutwinetours.us/CT_Wine_Tour_Packages.html, for more details. There is a specific winter wine trail set up just for you!
Here's our review of some of our favorite vineyards!
Haight Brown Vineyard in Litchfield offers a variety of wines including some of the delicious dessert wines! Try the honey nut apple, it's our favorite! You could do a wine tasting for just $10 or pair it with a cheese or chocolate plate to tantalize your taste buds. This winery is set in a rustic barn with plenty of indoor and outdoor seating. You can even find Groupon's every now and again to save a few bucks! Check out theirschedule and maybe get a customized lesson on wine blending.
For something even more fun, visitSunset Meadows Wineryin Goshen! This is our absolute favorite winery. It offers a wide array of events and entertainment along with some amazing local wines. The owners are friendly, fun and passionate about their art. Stop by in the summer and relax on the beautiful outdoor patio as you listen to local musicians play the day away. Make sure you try the Sangria slushie after your wine tasting! OR you can stop by on one of those cold and snowy winter afternoons and cozy up by the roaring fire or peruse their fun gift shop to find the perfect gift for the wine lover in your house! Make sure to try one of their homemade truffles AND the hot mulled wine, it is the absolute best! The wines are reasonably priced, a tasting is just $10 and you keep the glass!

"Jessica helped me not only purchase a home, that my fiance & I can start our new married life in, but she also completely saw me through the process of getting my condo rented, when it looked like selling the condo was not going to be an option I would necessarily benefit from due to the market at that time. Jessica was very professional, and extremely knowledgeable!! I never once felt like she was just in it for the money, it was quite the opposite, I trusted that Jess was always looking out for my best interest, by always laying out the options for me & explaining them in depth, to ensure that my fiance & I were making the best decisions. I really don't think I would've been able to see the buying/selling/renting process through, w/out Jess. She made the process 100% stress free, and enjoyable. I wouldn't recommend my friends to anyone else, but Jess!! Cause if they don't have Jess, they're not in good hands!! She is truly a real estate Starr!! :-)"
