Grab your closest pals and hit the Connecticut Wine Trail! Today’s journey will take you to three wineries for tastings: Saltwater Farm Vineyard, Jonathan Edwards Winery & Preston Ridge Winery.
Saltwater Farm Vineyard, set near the historic seaside village of Stonington, is situated on more than 100 panoramic acres, planted with six varieties of grapes and bordered by tidal marshes, coastal waters and scenic vistas of Long Island Sound. The centerpiece of the property is a vintage World War II era airplane hangar that has been converted into a winery, tasting room and event space. Enjoy a wine tasting followed by a boxed, picnic lunch provided by Mystic Market East.
Jonathan Edwards Winery was once home to a dairy farm, but has now been converted into a state-of-the-art winery featuring a California- inspired tasting room and gift shop. You can enjoy sampling fine wines on the stone patio set on beautiful Connecticut farmland. A classic tasting of seven wines is included.
Preston Ridge Vineyard is positioned at the peak of a ridge providing breathtaking views of over 20 miles of Connecticut countryside. Here, you will get a tasting of four wines and a signature glass to keep as a souvenir of your day on the wine trail.

Melody is the great gift of Schubert’s music: in this purest art of musical creation he was unequalled by anyone before or since. His themes
were not just catchy tunes but perfect compositions that might inspire raptures of joy or break your heart – or both. This one-hour presentation will look deeply into a few of his greatest songs, each a brief expressive masterpiece, to hear and understand the source of beauty in them. No prior experience of the music is necessary.
Cost: Both programs are free to members and $5 NM. Light refreshments will be served.
