Winvian Farm was originally built as a home for Dr. Seth Bird and his family in the Litchfield Hills of Connecticut in 1775. This quiet getaway is set on 113 acres, and boarders extensive woods and lakes. The house has had many families living within its walls over the years, but in 1948 the Smith family bought the home and renamed it Win-Vian, the combination of the first names of Winthrop and his wife Vivian. To this day, the grand house is still in the Smith family.
I'm always looking for fun and interesting places around New England to share with all my readers. This time I headed out to East Hartford, Connecticut to the Onyx Moonshine Speakeasy Tasting Room. Located in the back of an old factory, the Speakeasy is purposefully hard to find.
This past weekend into Lost Acres Vineyard in North Granby, Connecticut. It was their first day open for the season and I was so excited to go try some local wines. They have 5 acres where they grow their own white grapes for wine. I love drinking wines that also help support local businesses.
