  • The views are great! This place is all about location. The wine was ok but the sangria and chocolate wine are fantastic. They allow you to bring your own food (no outside beverages) and the staff are helpful and friendly.
  • It's too loud inside. When you go to a winery you want a little more peace and quiet than loud. The inside sitting room is very echo-y so you all have to talk very loud to hear your conversation, because everyone else is also being loud. They need to put up some sound absorbers or something. The wine is decent, their reds are my favorite, but they have been slowly increasing the price of the bottles since I've been going, used to be $12/bottle, now it's closer to $20 - and in my opinion the quality has gone down. Amazing views and much more pleasant when the weather is nice and you can sit outside away from the noise. Never had an issue with customer service like a lot of other reviews have said.
  • We went with friends on their 25th wedding Anniversary. The reason they picked Gouveia Vineyards , is their last Name is Gouveia. We met the owners Family of the Gouveia vineyard, Joe Gouveia. We ended up buying some bottles of wine. Wallingford was a nice fiendly place, when some restaurants heard it was their 25th wedding Anniversary , they didnt charge for the food, some gave deserts for all of us on the house. Sadly Gouveia Vineyards didnt acknowledge or give anything to the Gouveias on their 25th wedding anniversary even when they mentioned it to Joe & his Wife their 25th Anniversary ,its my last visit to the Gouveia Vineyards.
  • VERY disappointing ! This was my second visit. Brought two friends from the midwest and was embarrassed. We made sure we had a nice lunch prior to our visit so the wine tasting would not make us tipsy. There were 4 wines chosen for us and an additional wine of your choice. They give you one glass for all five tastes. You can rinse out your glass and dump the water into a separate container. We explained this was our first visit. The young lady was not customer friendly, did not make sure we understood the procedure but did tell us she'd collect the $12 fee for each person after we finished the tasting. We asked for a cracker in between tastes. The young lady was sorry but they did not have any crackers. A minute or so later an other lady said they had run out of crackers yet we saw a group be served fruit, cheese and crackers by an employee of the winery. All we wanted was a couple of crackers. No one there was thinking "outside the box". A wine tasting should not occur without something in-between to clean your pallet. The view is spectacular and potential for greatness is there. Very sorry the customer service aspect is so in need of serious training, care and attention. Not busy on Wednesday afternoon @ 2PM. No excuse, just bad service and poor planning on their part.
  • amazing place. !! recommended 100%.
