Quaint winery right off 151 in Nelson county with a small and cozy tasting room. The wines are great and the service top notch. I stop here often when in the area. I much prefer here to some of the big box wineries in the area.

Great wines, great reds, friendly hosts in the tasting room. The views out back were gorgeous, wish they had tables where you could enjoy a glass.

Flying Fox has dry wines, and I'm a sweet wine drinker, so I can't comment on the wine, but the tasting room was so quaint and charming. Of all the wineries I've been to, this was definitely the cutest! Loved how they transformed a barn into this charming tasting room.

I love small wineries. Flying Fox was an easy tasting (small charge) with great wines. Just a few people at the bar, not dozens like some places. The wines were very good. The staff was friendly and inviting. We left with a few bottles. I enjoyed the Pinot Gris especially.

We stopped here on a whim. The wine was great, we didn't try anything we didn't like and the woman who served us our wine was very knowledgeable of the area and was so pleasant to talk to. We lived it here!

Great tasting. We liked the Viognier and the Cab Franc. Took both home! Also really enjoyed Le Chic Picnic, a very delicious food 'truck'. Not really a truck.
