All you have to do is say the words, “wine” and “festival” in the same sentence, and I’m in the car! This weekend (July 27 & 28), the Connecticut Vineyard and Winery Association is hosting the Connecticut Wine Festival at the Goshen Fairgrounds in Goshen, Connecticut. For the $30 entrance fee, you’ll receive a tasting glass and have the opportunity to sample wines from more than 10 Connecticut wineries, enjoy great food, hear live music, and peruse local craft vendors. Goshen is a one and a half hour ride from mid-Fairfield County along winding roads and bucolic farmland. I can’t think of a better way to spend a summer afternoon!
Hours: Saturday, July 27th from 12pm-7pm and Sunday, July 28th from 12pm-6pm.
Location: The Goshen Fairgrounds. Parking is free. Directions: Click here
