"My wife and I had a fabulous time. Our hosts had a passion for wine and were generous in explaining the process of creating the wine and sharing samples with us to give us an idea of the wines that can be created in the Connecticut climate. Breakfast was creative and tasty. Adding the Vine and Dine was well worth the $125.00 value. Our room was very nice and had a window overlooking the vineyard. The inn is located not far from the Essex Steam Engine and Riverboat, which has an option to visit Gillette Castle. We took advantage and had a great day. "
