Escape To: Gouveia Vineyards

Vineyard in Wallingford feels a long way away from the workaday world

So it’s Saturday afternoon and my mom just left work early. We’re talking about my children and how she would like to spend more time with them.

The next thing I know … she’s at my doorsteps with a picnic basket! "Get out of here for a few hours”, she says. "I brought lunch, now you figure out where to go!"

Ahhhh, that’s an easy one! Our favorite local great escape Gouveia Vinyard in Wallingford.

The 140-acre vineyard features 15 varieties of grapes. It's been open to the public since 2004 for wine tastings in a blissful atmosphere with live entertainment on Saturday evenings from 4 to 7 p.m. Gouveia also offers customized gift baskets.

It'll provide the best few hours you'll ever treat yourself to! Hope to see you there!
