Aquila’s Nest Vineyards is an innovative, family-owned, climate neutral winery, tasting room and event venue. Aquila, Latin for “eagle”, is appropriately perched on a hilltop in Newtown, Connecticut and is western Connecticut’s newest gathering place dedicated to inspiring connections and communities. Situated 14 miles northeast of Danbury, the winery is 90 minutes north of New York City by car and easily accessible to travelers.
The Aquila’s Nest Vineyard experience intermingles mythology, art and wine to create a story that will define the guest experience from the moment one enters the driveway, to the first peak of the Mediterranean statues in front the winery entrance. Rooted in simplicity and inspired by the colors of nature, the 4,000-square foot facility shares production space with a 75-seat wine bar and tasting room which opens to an outdoor seating terrace overlooking the vineyards. A baby grand piano takes center stage and welcomes visitors who’ve planned a day trip to the destination and those stopping to have a family picnic and partake in the wine tasting experience.
Entertaining guests with a variety of wine pairing events, providing intimate fire pits outdoor seating, promoting local women and minority owned businesses, and creating community connections have been a focus at Aquila’s Nest Vineyards since their October 2020 debut.
