Family & Pet friendly beautiful afternoon at Sakonnet Vineyard

With Chewie and Odie in tow, we drove down to Little Compton for some day drinking at Carolyn Sakonnet Vineyard and Winery in Little Compton Rhode Island.  The drive was about 75 minutes and luckily for us, the holiday traffic had already passed.

The grounds for the winery was spectacular! There were Adirondack chairs and tables spread throughout beautiful endless fields.  Families put out blankets for their toddler's to crawl around while the parents sat around and enjoyed a glass (or two) in the beautiful sunny weather.

Glasses of wine were available for purchase in the cafe and bottles of wine was available in the tasting room.  There was a good amount of tasting going on during our visit and we saw a few tour groups and bachelorette parties.

The prices of the wines were extremely reasonable starting at $17.95.  We got a Sauvignon Blanc blend that only set us back $19.95.  The employee uncorked the wine for us and provided 2 monogrammed glasses and napkins.

I wished we were better prepared and had packed cheese and cured meat as the other families did.  If you forgot as we did or don't feel like packing, the on site cafe serves an extensive menu of cheese platters, pizza, salads, entrees, tapas and sandwiches.

The dogs had a great time just hanging out on the lush greenery.

After our bottle of wine, we headed down the road to Tiverton for a seafood lunch at Evenlyn's Drive in.

Cheers! Until next time! We will definitely be back!
