We are a family run, boutique vineyard located on 12 acres in Lyme, Connecticut, of which 2.5 acres are planted to vines. We are open for SD Hangouts starting September 5 through November 1st on Saturdays from noon-6pm and on Sundays from noon-5pm by appointment only. As a small vineyard, we pride ourselves in offering an intimate experience for up to five guests where you can meet the winemakers, tour the vineyard, hang out on our deck overlooking the chardonnay grapes, and sample the fruits of our labor.

The cost of each tasting is $14 plus tax and includes a SHV Logo glass. If you are under 30, (and how lucky are you!), you are still getting carded, so please remember to bring your photo ID. Please note, outside food and picnics are not permitted. Thank you for understanding.
