We arrived and were amazed at the beauty of this place - set on a hill, the view over the orchard and nearby mountains was stunning. We came here for a tasting, but if we went back we would bring an entire lunch - it is bring your own food and grab a table. The woman at the tasting bar... More

Set high on a hill with a panoramic view of the mountains and rolling hills covered in rows of grapes you can almost envision yourself in a French countryside. You can sip your wine outdoors under the pergola next to the garden or at the tables on the lawn and enjoy the view. You can go into the beautiful Stone... More

The time to visit this place is in the summer when you get the full effect. Who wants to be trapped inside when you can be sipping the nectar of the Gods alongside a lush vineyard? The best thing is "come as you are." Ball gown, jeans, post work happy hour....it's really chill. If you want a memorable place to... More

I have visited Gouveia Vineyards a few times and each time I go am just fixated on the view. The grounds are gorgeous, located in Wallingford on top of a hill. There are a few buildings, for gatherings and special occasions. Last time I went was fall for friends birthday and had a blast. Gouveia makes probably one of the... More

I stopped in on a weekend for a wine tasting and this place is like a huge indoor tailgate in progress. Tons of people with their trays of food packed in wall to wall waiting for people to give up tables. The wine tasting gave me a slop-the-hogs feeling as we were server en masse at the bar.

We went on a Saturday evening on a cloudy and chilling day, the place was really great. However, it was very crowded that day and we waited for 15-20 mins, but could not get a table. We were very hungry that day, but could not wait more. There would be at least 200 people sitting indoor, so you can expect... More

Spectacular views from the hilltop. Not busy on a fall Friday afternoon, even though some wedding pics being taken. Wine was good with white and red options. Glass included in the tasting fee of $10. Server friendly. Plenty of indoor and outdoor seating. Great fir a nice day visit.

Gouveia Vineyards is a great place to have an anytime gathering. Get there early to claim your table because it fills up fast. Its a bring your own place so back your favorite snacks. AND they only serve wine, soda and bottled water..all for purchase. The views are amazing!
