Welcome to Gouveia Vineyards, Wallingford, CT. Gouveia Vineyards is the joyful realization of a dream long cherished by the proprietor ~ to bring in some measure of remembrances of his village in Portugal and his grandfather’s beautiful vineyards here to America. Located high on 140 sun kissed acres, this jewel of a winery, built of stone and old timbers, commands a spectacular 360 degree view of lush woodlands, open fields, pristine hundred year old farms and, of course, the vineyard itself.
Please join us for wine tasting beside a warm and cozy fire.
Built of stone and old timbers, the winery building is a bucolic masterpiece that hints of Old World charm and of a time long past. Visitors who come to the winery for a wine tasting or a glass or bottle of wine. From the moment the winery has opened, it has become a place that people have visited to get away from their stresses. Sometimes visitors like to sit back and enjoy a glass of wine by our double sided fireplace while sharing cheese and crackers.
Featured performer this evening is Bob Semanchik. He gigged his way through music school and ended up in the popular New Haven, CT, band “The Crayons” in the early 1980’s. The Crayons were one of CT’s most popular bands, playing a mix of originals and covers of the time. Bob has now branched out on his own to also play clubs with a unique blend of acoustic/vocal, electric blues, classic rock and jazz guitar.
Bob has a great sound, check this out:
