If you’re going to New England, make sure to check out the fruit winery scene. Not grapes. Blackberries, raspberries, black currants and cherries. There are 27 of them in Connecticut alone, which means they’ve doubled in the past five years or so. I haven’t tried them, but I assume they’re fresh and fruity — even sour and refreshing — without being cloyingly sweet. White Silo Farm and Winery in the Litchfield Hills is supposed to be pretty good. Read an article about it on CNN.com: www.cnn.com/2006/TRAVEL/DESTINATIONS/08/16/fruit.winery.ap/index.html
