Instagrammable Connecticut: Vineyards and Wineries

Connecticut boasts more than forty wineries and vineyards, each offering incredible backdrops for your next insta pic. Most of Connecticut’s vineyards and wineries feature extensive grounds with plenty of outdoor seating, making it easy for visitors to both enjoy great wine and views while also safely distancing themselves from one another. With our Instagrammable Connecticut series, we’re inviting Instagrammers to share their pictures! Check back often for new topics. Or if you have some photos to share, tag your photos with #CTvisit!

As a reminder, be sure to check each vineyard's website for new safety guidelines before venturing out.
