Great selection of wines and very friendly. Explained all about the various wines bottled there and with what type meal they could be served.

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.

Stopped by Cardinal Point this weekend for a wine tasting. They had a musician playing in an outdoor area protected from weather. It was a fine location and service was good given the slightly crowded condition. I was just not impressed with the wines or the grounds. This could be a laid back and very family oriented environment as I... More

We picked a few vineyards to visit along Rt151 and this was our first of the day. We did some research on the web before arriving and found they offered very affordable wines and a nice selection of whites. They even off a green, if you're into the Portuguese wines, which tastes quite nice! Their membership benefits are GREAT! If... More

Although we joked that the wine glass looks like a health care logo, this was the best of the five vineyards we visited. One $4 tasting included 12 wines! The two female employees (Rose and the brunette from Ohio) were both enjoyable and educational company. We returned to purchase two blended bottles - Nouveau and Quattro - and we usually... More

The tasting room is on the smaller size but I like the coziness and the I feel the smaller the tasting room, the closer to the wine barrels! The wine was interesting and I enjoyed the various names assigned to them. Wine is subjective so what one may LOVE the other may not like so much. This was a great... More

Cardinal Point did offer a fairly decent selection of wines, but could not find any particular wine that truly stood out that I wanted to purchase.

Business is owned by a General in the military. The wine is good but not great. Staff was excellent. Well worth the trip.

This small and dated tasting area got overcrowded quickly. The staff was overwhelmed so we made a quick escape to another winery.
