It's time for some wining and dining in Litchfield County.

The 4th Annual Connecticut Wine Festival is coming to the Goshen Fairgrounds on Saturday and Sunday, July 28 and 29.

Sponsored by the Connecticut Vineyard and Winery Association and presented by the CT Wine Trail, the festival features some of the best that our state's vineyards have to offer.

Guests will get to taste a variety of fine wines, take part in wine classes, taste the offerings of specialty food vendors, enjoy artisanal crafts and a variety of live music.

Cases of wine will also be available at a discount, so you can bring home some of your favorites.

The festival had a record number of attendees last year, including a visit from Gov. Dannel Malloy. This year, organizers are promising a bigger and better festival.

Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 at the door. Proceeds will be used to promote the CT Wine Trail and the state's wine industry.

Don't forget to bring your ID if you plan to taste the wine.
