Our first wine tasting experience ever was made immensely enjoyable by our host Barry. His knowledge, honesty and personality was very delightful! We walked away with THE most incredible tasting dessert wine "Chocolate Essence" and a very enjoyable tasting Autumn Raspberry wine. Highly recommend this winery!

We came here with 5 people for a wine tasting. The scenery here is nice, but the geography of the area limits how far you can see, even with it on top of a large hill. We all did the taste everything option. The dry wines were not the best I have had, but the sweet wines made up for... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review of our winery. I'm sorry our dry white and dry red wines were not to your taste, but I'm so glad you enjoyed our semi-sweet and dessert wines.

We went for a tasting on a raining Sat. afternoon. I thought the whites were good not great. Didn't care for the reds. But the organic raspberry wine and the chocolate one at the end of the tasting were delicious. I bought one of each. Didn't love that they do some of their aging in plastic, it seems like something... More

Visited this winery on our way to obtaining additional stamps on our passport books. Let me say that this has to be one of my new favorites. The grounds are absolutely beautiful especially this time of the year. They have many outdoor seating areas, and allow outside food to be brought in. We paid $8.50 to taste many different wines....

That splendid fall afternoon became an even more splendid one, out in the rural area of Connecticut we came across the Taylor Brooke Winery. Thinking that it wouldn't be crowded we drove up the hill to the parking lot and found hundreds of parked cars. We entered to find smiling people, several tasting bars, a cordial hostess and knowlegable folks... More

Stopped in for a tasting on a Sunday afternoon. Rainy day but plenty of room. Our server was knowledgeable and personable which, along with good wine, seals the experience for us. Not rushed. Wine was good with enough white, red and dessert wines to peak our interest. Great stop. Will recommend it to friends.

I have been coming to Taylor Brook for years. Dick and Linda have a very special place in Woodstock CT. The Woodstock Valley Red is exceptional. They have a wine that is dedicated to their wine dog Zima. The wine is very good and a $1 per bottle goes to the WARL. Come for a tasting and leave with a... More

Visited with another couple on a Friday afternoon. Tasted 8 wines for a very reasonable $5.50. Barry was pouring, and we found him to be very knowledgeable and friendly. He really made the whole experience enjoyable and entertaining. We've been to many other wineries where they simply poured the wines and gave a basic description. Barry went above and beyond....
