Wellington is the one winery where you will love every wine you can taste. Responsible for 4 wine club memberships in the last months. Moving to Tennessee but this is one wine club we are taking with us.

Intimate setting, the wine was excellent. The host (Matt) was great and personable. He was very knowledge about all their wines. Their wine club was a no-brainer to join. Now, I am looking forward to receiving my first shipment back to CT in October.More
