wine bar in CT River/Shoreline area

We were going to to go to the wine bar at the Griswold Inn on MLK Day (Monday, Feb. 21) with friends. However, I just discovered that they are only open Wed-Sun. Is there anything comparable in the area? We plan to have lunch at the River Tavern in Chester, were going to wander over to Essex afterwards. We're coming from the New London area, so anything around Chester/Essex or the shoreline would be great. Any suggestions for a place to get a nice glass of wine, sit around and talk on a Monday afternoon?
