Great wine tasting

Fun with another couple - waited about 10 minutes for a wine tasting but worth the wait and very entertaining. Outside area looked very nice.

The wine here along with the scenic atmosphere is a great way to spend an afternoon. This family owned business is friendly and inviting. Enjoy 🍷

We loved the look of this vineyard - the house is beautiful and Tuscan and brings you right into the mindset of Italy. It was very busy when we arrived, with a party happening. You can bring your own food and sit at a table to enjoy it with their wines. The woman at the tasting bar was very knowledgeable... More

Paula was an excellent facilitator of our tasting! We have never purchased as much wine at a regional winery as we did here. Coming back for the Trio wine when it's released. Can't wait!

Family owned vineyard with mostly whites. Some unique varietals which were fun to try, but not our favorites. Indoor and outdoor seating. Indoors with a wood stove for winter evenings. Outdoor seating facing the vines which was nice, too. Server knew his wine and they were generous pours. Worth the visit!

The person facilitating the tasting was very dry. It took him about 5 mins and 2 wines to even acknowledge my group. His knowledge of the wine seemed very limited and didn't provide any info besides his take on the taste. The building where the tasting are held is beautiful but that's the best part of this place. Another party... More

Family run business. Beautiful, modern tasting room and patio. We really enjoyed the wines. The presentation was a little scripted, but they are friendly, knowledgeable, and nice. We've been back within two weeks of our first visit!

Paradise Hills Vineyard is a great place to visit. Get a bunch of friends together and enjoy the indoor facilities or outdoor, weather permitting. The wine is good for a local Connecticut wine. You bring your own food in and the only thing the establishment asks is that you buy "drinks" from them ... wine, water, soda. It's relaxing and... More

We tried this Vineyard last year during a weekday. The gentleman that served us was not friendly at all and didn't give any info on the wine besides it name. I'm not a fan of oak, so I like to know it it was made in oak or stainless steel. It was like I was bothering him when I asked.... More

Charming little spot. Interesting wines with a hint of Italy. Saturday afternoon steady stream of people. Do the tasting at the bar or sit outside on the covered patio. Great way to spend a bit of an afternoon with friends. Wines good enough to buy and drink again.

Thank John M
