The Winter Wine Trail was started in 2009 by a group of farm wineries to show off the beauty of the Litchfield Hills in the winter and to remind consumers that Connecticut wineries in the hills are open year-round. The Winter Wine Trail now includes wineries from throughout Connecticut. It begins January 21, 2022, and runs through April 10, 2022. The customers are given a “Trail Card” that lists the twelve participating wineries and upon visiting each winery the card is then stamped. Once stamped by all twelve wineries, completed cards are then handed into the wineries and entered into a drawing for a wide variety of prizes totaling over $5,000.
