Taylor Brooke Winery

Woodstock, CT

The wine industry in Connecticut is growing.  Over the past 10 years, I know of at least 4 wineries that have started producing wines in just the southeast part of the state.  To promote the wineries and tourism, The Connecticut Vineyard and Winery Association has all of these wineries listed on their Connecticut Wine Trail.  One can pick up a "passport" at any of the wineries and it is hoped that you'll take the passport to each of the wineries where you can get it stamped.  If you can get stamps from at least 16 of the wineries, you turn your passport in at the end of the season, and you are eligible to win a trip.  Sounds like a good thing to do on a summer's weekend.  This is stop number 1, the Taylor Brook Winery in Woodstock, CT.  One down..... 15 more to go.

  1. Nice image, Ed. I like the perspective and the big block of red. The state has been trying to get a wine business going for quite a while, but recently it does seem that there is some kind of critical mass.
