Head for the Litchfield Hills. Hopkins Vineyard in New Preston is a national bicentennial farm, meaning it has been in the same family for more than 200 years. From the tasting room you can view the tanks and wine-making equipment from a catwalk. With 30 acres of vines, Hopkins produces up to 9,000 cases of wine a year, including the state's only sparkling wines (not available for tasting). My favorite was Sachem's Picnic ($12), a sangria-like semisweet red.
