Welcome to Fine Wine in the Litchfield Hills!

We have two locations in Litchfield County. Our flagship store, Litchfield Hills Wine Market is in the heart of Litchfield, Connecticut. We’ve been in the same location in the Village Green Plaza since 2010.  With upwards of 600 wines, a full range of unique craft brews and independent distillers, we’ve quenched the thirst of the multitudes for years.

Our new location, The River Wine & Spirits is smack dab on the Farmington River in New Hartford. Situated right on Main Street. We have a beautifully tailor-made shop for wine aficionados, kayakers, fly fisher-people, tubers, and hikers. Tons of craft beers, unique wines, and a thoughtfully curated selection of spirits abound.
