My friends and I visited Lost Acres last Saturday. We've been to most of the vineyards in CT over the last few years and enjoy spending a day at the vineyard. This was our first time visiting Lost Acres, but we were very impressed. Like many other vineyards, the place allows you to bring your own food in. While we were there I saw that they did sell some of their own food as well (cheese platters, etc), so you had the option of bringing your own food or buying something from them. We started our time at the vineyard with a tasting. The girl who helped us was the friendliest vineyard worker I've ever met. She had us take our tasting menus and sit on the couch until a spot opened up at the bar area (they had 10 wines available and it was $6 for a 5 wine tasting and you were able to keep the glass). When the bar area opened she called us up and started the tasting. With limiting the amount of people doing a tasting at one time you actually get to talk to the person and ask questions about the wine. A lot of other vineyards have 1-2 people pouring samples for 20+ people. They're always a little distracted and the tastings take forever while you wait for the person to come back with your next tasting. After the tasting we bought a couple bottles of wine and grabbed a table on their lawn overlooking the grapes. There was also a deck, but our group was larger and the tables were all taken. Overall, this vineyard competes with any of the other vineyards we've been to. The excellent service, friendly staff, and the relaxed atmosphere all contributed to a great day!
