I love wine. I love wine tasting. I love a long picnic lunch while sipping a glass of vino. To find any of these together in PA is a treat, however, a very expensive treat. Va La vineyards tasting room is a converted barn and captures rustic elegance. The tasting is professional, informative, and friendly. Added bonus: local cheeses and... More

This is an enjoyable way to spend a beautiful summer day. Go for the views because the wine is just ok.

Who would think that you could fine a sophisticated vineyard in the rural, mushroom growing area town of Avondale, PA? Strange but true! Va La's wines rate right up there with the big boys, and while the vineyard is small, their tasting room is spacious and fun. There's also an upstairs room with tables and chairs and an outdoor patio.... More

My husband and I just spend a lovely weekend in the Brandywine Valley and just stumbled upon Va La Vineyards. We were the only ones there during an early Sunday afternoon and the tasting (which lasted a little more than an hour) was truly an experience to remember. Janet, our tasting host, was knowledgeable about both the wine and the... More

The Va La tasting experience is exceptional. I've been bringing friends and out of town guests to this lovely vineyard for the last 5 years. The wines are excellent and redeem the PA wine experience... Nothing sweet or syrupy here! The Mahogony wine rivals some mertiages I've enjoyed from Napa. The customer service is always top notch and the local... More

We had visited black walnut winery earlier this month and we asked which other winery to visit and hands down they said va la. We asked of it would be okay to bring in kids (with backup MIL) and they pointed to their backyard over looking the vines. The tasting was 20 for four wines but it includes three perfectly... More

My sister called and asked me if I wanted to go with her and my mother to a wine tasting vineyard in Avondale . I was excited to go and we had a wonderful time. I had gone to several wine tasting vineyards but never had I gone to one that had paired the wine with some cheeses and homemade... More

I was given a bottle of wine from this vineyard two years ago and was surprised by the quality. At that time I vowed to go to the winery at some point to see for myself. Last week I did just that and the surprise continued. We did the wine tasting which was slow and deliberate with the wines being... More

The wine was WONDERFUL! and the family that runs things and shares their family history wine bread and culture with you are the best! This was a date for my birthday from my husband and it was a great one. Just going in for a tasting is nothing like any other we have done before. A great time was had... More

The best locally made wine I've ever had. Usually end up going here a few times a year. The bottles are more expensive than most PA wines. But, they are worth the extra money because you will enjoy them.
