Taste wine, stamp your passport and win prizes. Passport to Connecticut Farm Wineries.
Participants in the 2012 Passport program must get their passport stamped at 16 of the 32 participating wineries in the state by November 11 to be eligible to win prizes that include a two-week trip for two to Benalmadena Costa, Spain! Other prizes include a chauffeured limo trip for eight to visit some of the wineries, an overnight getaway at the Courtyard Marriott in Norwich and a certificate for two bottles of wine.
The Passport program has been promoting wineries and grape growing in Connecticut since 2003. “It’s a great way to explore other parts of the state besides the more well-known areas,” said Linda Auger of the Taylor Brook Winery in Woodstock.
Wineries include Taylor Brook, Saltwater Farm Vineyard in Stonington, Sharpe Hill Vineyard in Pomfret, in Eastern Connecticut plus many others. Taste the wines, visit the vineyards and learn how wine is made.
Start a passport at any winery in Connecticut and enjoy exploring all summer long. Happy sipping and stamping, oh and good luck. That trip to Spain sounds amazing.
