Our Other Offerings
During our festive Christmas tree season at the farm, the winery tasting room is decked with Christmas trees, ornaments, and one-of-a-kind gifts. The farm has been inviting guests to harvest their own Christmas tree for 70 years, and it a wonderful focal point for all the farm and winery's activities.

Our Tasting Room Mission: Educate and Celebrate!
In a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere, we help guests discover how to taste wines and to appreciate Connecticut wines. Our talented staff leads guests through a guided tasting so they can explore for themselves what they like best about wine. The focus of our wine tastings and our tasting room experience is education.

Directions to the Tasting Room
The Tasting Room is located at 606 Walnut Tree Hill Road, Shelton, CT, at our Homestead Farm. For complete directions, please see our Homestead Farm driving directions.  Once you arrive at the farm and park in the main parking lot, signs and wine barrels will direct you through the farmyard to red historic barn where the Tasting Room is located.

Be good to the land and the land will be good to you.
