The staff is great when it comes to top service, and is knowledgeable in their job. The restaurant is great.
Cava: Is located in the prosperous town of New Canaan and is a brick- and stone- walled winery. Was opened 10 years ago by Vincente Siguenza, and is a top tier winery that offers 30 or so different types of wine and serves them by the glass. It boasts wine imported from Europe, South America, and even New Zealand. It’s an amazing spot to hit up if you are in or from around the area.
1249 Wine Bar: This Winery is located in Waterbury and unlike the other two wineries, this one is more casual and laid back, but still maintains the perfect balance of cool and yet classy. Restaurant lists more than 60 offered wines, and also focuses more on food than the other two restaurants do, and their trained staff will be able to find you the right food to compliment your drink.
Cuvee: This Wine bar is located in West Hartford, and is very similar to the 1249 in the fact that it is a laid back type of winery.
