It’s pumpkin season!! We can’t get enough of them. Big orange ones, cute white ones, stripy warty ones…we love them all! We’ve got 5 Connecticut, family-run pumpkin farms you need to visit this season…which also happen to be the perfect spot to snap your best Instagram pics! Fact: pumpkin patches make for great family memories (and photos)!
Occasion: Right in our backyard – it’s the perfect spot to celebrate the start of fall!
About: The Hopkins Inn overlooks the highly picturesque Lake Waramaug (8 flat miles in circumference – perfect for cycling, running, and walking). Hopkins is the quintessential Litchfield County country inn and it has it all – the restaurant, the views, cozy, comfortable, and a long-standing history. They even have their own salad dressing.
Bottle Stop Wine and The Hopkins Inn collaborating to put on a special food and wine event was the perfect pairing. The evening affair would include four courses and dessert made by talented Chef Franz Reiter of The Hopkins Inn, with a different wine for each course picked out by Bottle Stop Wine and Spirit.
When invited to attend and report back to our readers – we were happy to oblige…
