R•Dee Winery is a family owned winery with a focus on grape to glass by utilizing grapes from regions that grow them best. Our grandfather, Richard Dee, taught us to put family first and always follow your dreams. He has inspired us to continue to make wine as he did for years creating many wonderful memories. We hope to one day own our own vineyard and continue to make great wine in Connecticut. Pour a glass and create your story.
Our winery was designed and built by hand by the owners and their families. The McAuliffe's and their family designed the place with a vision of tradition and romance. They stained the ceiling, put in the floors, built the bar and included many little touches throughout the tasting room to make it all come together. The winery is a relaxing place where you can feel at home with a glass of wine, family and friends and good conversation and company.
R•Dee Winery hosts Trivia every Thursday with Best Ever Trivia starting at 7pm.

We work with small family owned and operated farms and vineyards to import our grapes directly from the regions that grow them best! We currently work with multiple vineyards in the Finger Lakes region of NY, California and South Africa! We have whites, reds, rose, and our homemade sangrias!
We offer all guests wine by the glass (in a 6 oz. Traditional or 9 oz. "Heavy" pour), wine by the bottle for in-house consumption, and Wine Flights.
A rotating schedule of fresh white Slushies made with R•Dee Winery wines, real fruits and real juice. No artificial colors of dyes used. We pride ourselves in using fresh products in our Slushies for everyone to enjoy. Check in with our wine-tender or social media for current flavor.
Choose any of our 4 wines or sangrias and take your flight to your table to enjoy. We have menus for you to
guide yourself through a tasting.
Due to state mandate we are currently not offering traditional wine tastings at the bar.
R•Dee Winery is owned by Michele and Mark McAuliffe. Michele grew up here in Enfield, CT and graduated from Fermi High School. Mark grew up outside Philadelphia. We graduated from Ithaca College in New York with our doctorates in Physical Therapy and currently work in the local area during the week. We loved that we were able to go to school among the vineyards and wineries of the Finger Lakes Region. We were married here in town and reside in Enfield with our three boys!
We are blessed to be able to be part of an amazing community here in Enfield and here within Connecticut and love giving back! We have been able to donate to multiple local charity events, donations in support of the St. Bernard’s School Golf Tournament, donations and pouring at wine tasting event to support Education Resources for Children (ERfC), donations for support of Enfield Child Developmental Center and completing our yearly toy drive to support the children at Connecticut Children’s Medical Center each December.
