Our daughter appears to like the wines here but we were not particularly blown over. The tasting room is a bit industrial for my taste but appeared to be OK for the crowd that was there. The wines were run of the mill.

Came here this past weekend for an oyster festival and had quite a fun time. The live music was great, the local oysters were absolutely delicious and went well with two of the Cardinal Point whites: 'Green,' which is an homage to the Vinho Verde region, and 'A6' which is a lightly oaked chardonnay-viognier blend. They also have a hopped... More

We stopped by on a quiet Wednesday afternoon. The service was wonderful but we thought the wine was not anything special.

I recently went to Cardinal Point with friends for a tasting and glass of wine on the deck. The wines are very unique, and you won't find anything like them anywhere else! Many of the wines are co-fermented blends, and my favorite was a hopped chardonnay called IPC — 100% chardonnay with hops added. The winery is nestled in the... More

Intimate rural setting with a small tasting area. Plenty of room to sit outside and listen to live music. Menu offered mostly dry wines, both white and red. Also ordered a bottle of water that was incredibly refreshing. Apparently from a local distributor. If you visit, try the water too! Recommend

Thank you Emily for a great tasting. I enjoyed the wine and the outdoor patio. My favorite wines were the A6 and Quattro. I really enjoyed the IPC, a hopped Chardonnay.
