Our picturesque hilltop site and the natural beauty of the vineyards and winery are ideal for a unique and beautiful event.
The magnificent, natural environment will enhance any wedding vision; a place where you can unplug from the real world, focus on and enjoy the people in your life who are invaluable, and through any of the remote, private sites we offer throughout the vineyard, enjoy a place where your event is about you.
Because we care about maintaining its beauty, we have become the first winery in New England to be completely solar powered, and as environmentalists, practice sustainable agriculture. Bluebird boxes are scattered throughout the vineyards and hayfields, as are wood duck boxes on the ponds, and homes for the barn owls, kestrels, and other wildlife natural to the area. We propagate bluebirds to keep undesirable insects at bay, maintaining the beauty and health of the vineyard. Our 40-acre farm has been certified by the National Wildlife Federation as a natural bird and wildlife habitat.
The winery and vineyards are situated on 40 pastoral acres of beautiful hilltop with a spectacular 35-mile view of the New England countryside. We are located in the Salmon River watershed area, 20 minutes South-East of Hartford, 15 miles from the New England coast and just minutes from the Moodus Resort area, Goodspeed Opera House, Mohegan Sun Casino, the Norwich Inn & Spa and a number of state parks, as well as the Airline Hiking Trail. Our close proximity to numerous outdoor activities makes for a wonderful get-away weekend for any of your guests.
We've designed the complete package, with everything you need to create your spectacular event, plus enhancements to allow for personalization.
The Bluebird Pasture
Our most magnificent area of the property, at the top of the vineyard, has a 35-mile view and allows for larger tented events, accommodating 75-500 guests and parking. Stroll the hayfield and walk along the path lined with Bluebird boxes, breath in the beautiful, fresh country air, and soak up all of the magnificent surroundings. Tented events can take place in any 5 hour period throughout the day.
Sugar Maple Lane
This area is at the top of the vineyard, in the shade of the beautiful Maple trees, a perfect spot for your ceremony. This is a beautiful location to begin your walk to the altar as you make your entrance between acres of vineyard on both sides. Your guests have a magnificent view of the valley and vineyards to enjoy while seated.
Complete your entrance through the center of the vineyards as you arrive to say your vows near the classic New England stone wall lined with Sugar Maples. Add our beautifully decorated wrought iron gazebo or chuppah to create a focal point for the start of your wedding ceremony. Steal a kiss in the tree swing overlooking the entire 35-mile view. Our tree swing has become the most sought after place to propose; we have had several wedding engagements take place there. Guaranteed to get a"YES".
The perfect place for an intimate winery wedding decorated beautifully in our Winemakers Room. A picture perfect day for a ceremony among the vines, and a delicious dinner party, and dancing in the warmth of our winery building.
