Our winery, mostly through word of mouth, has been growing by leaps and bounds, because of this we had to expand our facility. We completed this expansion, to the western side of our winery, in May 2007 and have been able to accommodate many more visitors. This added space has allowed us to expand our wine cellar, but more importantly it has opened up the winery building to allow people to sit inside and enjoy the spectacular sunset views. It is truly a bucolic masterpiece that waits just outside the windows of the entire winery. From this high of a vantage point you are able to see the growing vines, the changing leaves, and horses grazing in the pasture next door. From the front of the building you are able to look over rolling hills covered in vines and a pond with an inviting dock. Just imagine yourself sitting on the edge of the dock and your bare feet swinging back and forth over the side while you read a novel and enjoy your favorite glass of wine. – Description from mriskic

    Wine review by RandomShoes


  • What a shame: set atop a scenic hill in the most beautiful part of Wallingford, CT, is a lovely winery with plenty of seating and a gorgeous view. Unfortunately, the staff at Gouveia Vineyard are so unwelcoming, they seem completely unconcerned with whether their clientele return to the vineyard. Recently, I attended a rehearsal dinner there for... Read More

  • Anyone know any wineries in Connecticut that are 'can't miss' stops?There's a list here, but I was wondering if there was anything unique and worth having a look at- particularly around Mystic & Foxwoods and/or near Lake Compounce.  (Boulderdash!) Tanks  Read More

  • Gouveia Vineyards Stone House White NV

    Snoothrank:

    A Semi-sweet wine that combines classic Chardonnay and crisp Seyval Blanc and Vignoles. Flavors of bisquity breads, light melon fruit that blend superbly from careful aging in mostly steel tanks. Was very interseting on the nose and pleasant to taste. I liked it! Read More

  • Gouveia Vineyards Cabernet Franc 2005

    Snoothrank:

    Recently opened a bottle that I picked up the day I stopped by the winery. Given a chance to breathe a bit, this was a lovely, soft, deep wine - I revised my original rating, and now have this on my list of CT favorites.A full-bodied red with lovely notes of cherry. The color is a medium-ruby color with a slight matte finish. The nose is bri... Read More

  • Gouveia Vineyards Stone House Red Rouge NV

    Snoothrank:

    Gouveia's most popular red wine, the Stone House Red is a blend of zinfandel, merlot and cabernet franc grapes, aged for 12 months in American and French oak. A dry wine, the nose has lovely notes of black cherries with their crisp tang and hint of sweetness. The wine is a medium-bodied wine, with nice notes of fruit, black cherry again and p... Read More

  • Gouveia Vineyards Stone House White NV

    Snoothrank:

    A semi-sweet wine, the Stone House White is a blend of Chardonnay, Seyval Blanc and Vignoles fermented primarily in stainless steel. The color is a lovely light golden-yellow, and the nose has notes of grass and hints of green pepper. The wine is definitely the sweetest of the three whites I tried that day, and while the wine is nicely blended... Read More

  • Gouveia Vineyards Cayuga Blanc NV

    Snoothrank:

    Gouveia's Cayuga is a semi-dry, crisp and refreshing white wine. Like the Chardonnay, it is also a pale yellow, almost straw color. The nose has lovely notes of citrus, particularly grapefruit, and peach. In the mouth, the citrus and the peach provide a really nice balance - the peach smoothing out some of the acidity and sharpness of the cit... Read More

  • Gouveia Vineyards Oaked Chardonnay NV

    Snoothrank:

    This is a dry Chardonnay aged 12 months in American Oak. The color is a pale yellow - almost, but not quite straw. The nose is delicate with pleasant floral notes which set a nice tone for the wine without being overpowering. In the mouth, the wine is slightly buttery and has a slight acidity which balances the wine nicely. The oak is a nice... Read More
