Overview

When family and friends get together there is a magical sense of camaraderie of family. Il Cantina Sociale di La Familglia is Our Society of Wine Producers & you are now a member of the family. Throughout your days of wine-making with us you will learn from second, third & fourth generation Italian-Americans the joys and traditions of wine making. From crushing and pressing to racking and bottling, you will be involved in each step resulting in your own barrel of Vino della Casa labeled, of course, with your name. During your time with us, in addition to working with the grapes, we invite you to experience the Italian way, as we know it. We will share with you our new family, the great meals, the lore, the tradition and the story telling that has made for such camaraderie and resulted in so many special times. You'll probably even pick up a few of our favorite phrases and gestures along the way. We invite you to stroll the gardens, play a game of bocce or horseshoes, or lend a hand in the kitchen preparing for the evening's feast!

Tiny shack/shed serves as the tasting room. We arrived and had to wait for glasses to be washed at the main house (a lovely structure but not part of the winery). The shack was damp, cold and smelled of dogs. And actually by the time...More

Unlike the vast majority of CT wineries, the wine here is very good. I really liked the chardonnay and one of my friends liked the Harvest Moon, a seasonal wine with pumpkin spice flavoring. Apparently it was pretty much everyone else's favorite too, as it...More
