Road Trip: CT Wine Festival This Weekend

ctwine2All 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

Tickets:  $30 during the festival , $10 designated drivers and those under 21.
