  • I have visited Gouveia Vineyards a few times and each time I go am just fixated on the view. The grounds are gorgeous, located in Wallingford on top of a hill. There are a few buildings, for gathering...  more »
  • I stopped in on a weekend for a wine tasting and this place is like a huge indoor tailgate in progress. Tons of people with their trays of food packed in wall to wall waiting for people to give up tab...  more »

  • Wine is delicious but it's not the friendliest wait staff. I found them to be a bit standoffish and rude. Perhaps they lack training? I did purchase two bottles of wine but still didn't get a nod, a smile or a thank you. Too bad. It's a lovely place.
  • 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.
  • Worst customer experience ever - the only winery on the CT wine trail I will never give business to again - the staff & owner were rude. we have been here many times before and always done tastings inside, but we were told we could not taste inside and would need to wait 20 minutes for the next large group tasting, - being regular customers, we knew this was not the case, and when I questioned the owner about it, he stuck his finger in my face, called me "lady" and the rudeness went on from there - my husband dragged me out before I could fully "engage", but I figure social media will be his karma - don't bother buying anything here - get your passbook stamped and move on...
  • Beautiful vineyard with great scenery and outdoor seating. Excellent spot for a date. For wine I recommend their Stone House White or Sunset Red.
  • Beautiful atmosphere inside and out. Do to earth and friendly staff. Wine was excellent.
