What to Do in Connecticut This Fall? Hit the Connecticut Wine Trail

With the first significant shift in temperature upon us, we here at Calcagni Real Estate can’t help but feel that twinge of excitement that every New Englander knows so well: The promise of fall and all its crisp, golden-hued beauty! There is so much happening in our gorgeous Nutmeg State, but if you’re seeking breathtaking natural surroundings, a place to gather with friends where you can while away a few hours, and some of the best wine our home state has to offer, look no further than the Connecticut Wine Trail.

Where are the vineyards in Connecticut?

If you’re lucky enough to live or work in Connecticut like we at Calcagni Real Estate are, you’re in luck–because the Connecticut Wine Trail weaves in and out of beautiful locations throughout the state. From Wallingford and Guilford to Newtown, New Hartford, Clinton, Stonington, and many more towns, Connecticut vineyards offer many home-grown wines for you and your loved ones to try while overlooking gorgeous vistas that will transport your senses.

What’s the best way to visit the Connecticut Wine Trail?

You can make a day out of visiting a single vineyard and picnicking with your friends (Gouveia Vineyards has long been a favorite of the Calcagni Real Estate crew!), or you can book a Connecticut Wine Trail tour (we recommend booking transportation to keep things save and effortless!). The CT Wine Trail has a “CT Wine Passport” app that allows you to “​​create your own itinerary, explore by region, product, or experience, tag your favorites, collect stamps, and be entered in the prize drawing as you explore CT Wine Country.”

What else can I enjoy at Connecticut vineyards?

Even if you aren’t a wine connoisseur, the Connecticut Wine Trail has something for everyone. Not only are these scenic spaces beautiful to enjoy, but many of the vineyards offer live music and food trucks for their guests to enjoy–a perfect way to spend a beautiful autumn day soaking up the sunshine!

If you’re looking for a way to enjoy all that Connecticut fall weather has to offer, discover (or rediscover!) the Connecticut Wine Trail. With beautiful views, delicious wine, food trucks, and feel-good live music, these local Connecticut vineyards have something for everyone to enjoy. And who knows? You may just run in to some of your local Calcagni Real Estate agents or team members while you’re at it. We’ll be sure to raise a toast!
