Before I get into pretty places and lovely dinners, I want to just say how devastating and heartbreaking the news coming out of Nepal is. I hope everyone considers donating a little bit to a valued and established charity to help people there get back on their feet- there is a list here from Time Magazine of six great options if you are looking for one.
This past weekend we drove down to Connecticut to have dinner with my parents at Sharpe Hill Vineyard in Pomfret, CT. You don’t think of Connecticut as having vineyards, seeing as we’re under snow for what seems like six months of the year, but they do! And Sharpe Hill also has a pretty amazing restaurant too! It’s all very colonial and cozy, with only about 10-12 tables, and housed in a barn building with whitewashing vaulted, beamed ceilings and a double sided fireplace in the center.
It’s really cool space and perfect for a special celebration or romantic night out.
There are these great murals painted on the end walls too- the whole scene is perfectly decorated.
Downstairs there is an adorable tasting room too, if you just want to taste the wines, or taste them before you head upstairs for dinner.
And in the summer you can eat out on their truly lovely patio!
Ahhhh, doesn’t this look just perfect?
You need to make reservations WAY, WAY ahead so if you have a desire to take the trek this spring or summer I’d call now (it’s only open Friday, Saturday and Sunday)
