I have succesfully transplanted a Wineberry plant from my Father's house this Spring. Is there anything I can do to help it through the winter in CT? He doesn't do anything to them, because they grow wild in the swampy bit that was my Aunt's land.

Wineberry (Rubus phoenicolasius) is quite winter hardy and grows wild throughout your region. A heavy organic mulch over the root area should be sufficient protection. You may also want to be sure it is watered during dry spells since it does prefer damp areas. I might also mention that this plant is considered an invasive exotic, here is more information about that from the National Park Service web site.
