Sakonnet Vineyard

What a great spot to have a picnic. We went to the antique show in Tiverton and then moved up the road just a couple of miles to the winery. Bought some wine to bring home and a bottle for lunch....sat out in the lawn where picnic tables are provided. We had our picnic lunch which we had brought from home, but if you prefer...you could buy a light lunch at the vineyard store and sit at tables just outside the building. Whichever way you do it, you'll enjoy your visit. The long winding entrance road puts you into the mood to kick back and relax. Our son, Christopher and wife, Karen were up from New Jersey and they always enjoy bringing bottles back to neighbors and friends.
As for Little Compton overall...you'll find magnificent growing fields here...old stone walls, beautiful beaches, precious wind beaten cottages and barns...absolutely gorgeous scenery. However this town does have the reputation of wanting visitors to leave promptly. A movie maker once tried to make a movie here and no amount of bribery would convince them. Out! OUt! Not in OUR town!!

Looking toward the vineyard

You can walk the vineyard if you like....and in fact, there are sometimes wedding receptions held under a big white tent on the grounds.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Gorgeous...pastoral beauty

    I guess somewhere there is a 'Big Compton'? Kind of felt sorry for pleasant orphaned Little Compton which even has been passed over by other VT visitors.....
