Fall and all its splendor has arrived here in New England! While it’s been a bit warmer than usual the past few days (and no, we’re not complaining about that one bit), it is still definitely October. The trees are rapidly changing colors and we know that soon cold temperatures will be upon us. What we have learned in the 8 years we’ve been at this business is the following: There is something about this time of year that makes people want to hit the open road. Confession: We’ve been doing the same the past few weekends (in and around customer trips of course). With this in mind we now have campers available for hire.
Interestingly enough, we frequently receive calls this time of year from clients and prospective clients looking to book fall foliage tours. We have spent much of the summer roaming the back roads of Connecticut to bring you excursions that will help you see new parts of the state, visit with friends and enjoy some local small businesses. Looking for something to do this weekend? Call us – we have availability with a variety of vehicles available on both Saturday and Sunday.
This weekend we’re going to highlight Goshen, CT – a small town located in central Litchfield County. Why are we suggesting this route? Well, if wine and chocolate are your thing, this is the tour for you!
We had the pleasure of stumbling upon Milkhouse Chocolates at Thorncrest Farm earlier this fall. Available for sale at a quaint shop attached to the barn, these handmade delights will be a treat to any chocolate connoisseur! Our recommendation is that you stock up – they will disappear quicker than you think!
From there, we suggest you continue on to Sunset Meadow Vineyards which is a short 5 minute drive. Here, you will be able to experience a wine tasting while relaxing in the calm of the Litchfield Hills. The knowledge of the staff in the tasting room was impeccable, the view outstanding and the hospitality unparalleled. During our visit, we were treated to live music (and the chocolate paired wonderfully with the wine samples).
If you are looking for a final stop on your adventure, we would be remiss if we didn’t suggest stopping for another sweet treat at the Arethusa Creamery. The ice cream and cheese selection will certainly send you home full.
Connecticut is home to a number of small businesses who appreciate your patronage. We welcome the opportunity to help you explore all the fun and treasures the Nutmeg State has to offer! If a more traditional wine tour is to your liking, please give us a call (203-938-0000) – we would be happy to organize a tour of any of the state’s vineyards.
For those interested in a customized tour, please know that we offer round trip, door-to-door service and can accommodate groups small and large. Please call for a customized rate quote and know that we look forward to serving you!
If you are fortunate enough to call Goshen home or planning a visit: Please know that we offer services to/from Goshen and any of the area airports (Bradley, JFK, Newark, LaGuardia or Westchester County). Rates furnished upon request.
