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!

Went here on a Sunday afternoon. Did a wine tasting for $6 (5 different) wines. You keep the glass. I found it was cheaper here for the wine tasting than other vineyards. Great White wine. Was my favorite. Sat outside on the deck. Ordered a anti pasta plate. They also had a cheese plate as a choice. Was very good. Love that they offered those. Would visit again in the near future.

Lost Acres has a number of things going for it, friendly staff, fun events, beautiful grounds, and great tasting wine. They are open on the weekends and you can reserve the place for evening events as well. I have visited during events, like the great bands they bring in, or the moonlight snowshoeing, but also reserved the hall for a birthday party. Every time I have been impressed. You can tell that they care for the community. Events that bring in local farms and artists are frequent. You can check the website for details or pick up a flyer at the bar. Stop in for a tasting or to get a bottle and sit on the deck overlooking the vineyard. It's a fun atmosphere with a great staff! Support your local vineyard!

Visited this winery this past Sunday. We arrived at 1pm, the winery opens at noon, the tasting room was packed. The staff helped us make shift a table, but luckily one opened up for us. They had a band playing. The tasting was $6.00 for 5 wines and the wine glass. I prefer whites, I enjoyed Wedge White $12.00 and 10 of us sat down and enjoyed food we brought in(or purchase a chees platter) and good wine. Enjoyable afternoon, will def. return throughout the winter months but am looking forward to visiting when the weather warms to enjoy the deck and grounds.
My only negative is the band was a bit loud which made conversation with friends across the table difficult.

Love the vineyard. They are growing and the community is supporting them. Love spending time on the deck in the warmer weather and love a Sunday afternoon by the fire when the mercury drops. Their wines are young as is the vineyard, but so very promising!
