My husband and I wanted to visit Basignani after discovering how much we love their Monkton Moon wine. The place itself is a bit cramped and musty looking, but all of their wines are superb! We had Danny helping us, and we both adored his gruff charm and knowledge about everything under the sun. We decided to join their wine... More

Found a coupon for Basignani on Groupon, so thought we'd try it. What fun! Quaint winery tucked in the woods of Baltimore County, MD. Wines were delicious. We had one staff member dedicated to us throughout our taste testing. Kristen was friendly and knowledgeable. Impressed with the range of events they offer all year around. They do push their cases... More

It was a birthday weekend for just girls for myself and a friend. One of our other close friends brought us here. We were not disappointed. Only that we didn't purchase any wine bc we didn't have suitcases, just carry on's to go back home on the plane. The ambiance was rustic. We had the wine tasting with our pizza's.... More

Went for the wine and cheese pairing. Had Danny as our wine host. Gave info on the best way to enjoy the wine. Very personable. Pizza smelled good. Live music. Started to rain so we left but bought half a case of wine. Will go back again.

One of the first wineries my wife and I visited (years ago) and we love to go back from time to time to sip some excellent wine, grab a few bottles and chat with the folks who run the place. On our last visit the guys were bottling the 2012 Marisa ( a delightful red) as we arrived on scene.... More

Went there 11/24 for a tasting. Wines are very good, the guy giving our tasting was very informative, is part of that family so knows all the history which was interesting. One the oldest wineries in MD I believe. The tasting room is charming I suppose, but looks like very little has been done to it in a coupla decades.... More

I found the Travelzoo certificate and thought it would be something fun to do. It was! Driving south on I-83 from PA, we got off the interstate early and took some beautiful back roads to the winery. I thought the tasting room was very cozy. It is dusty, which I think is kind of weird and some skylights in the... More

Since I live in wine country in VA my guidelines are a bit tougher than most. Basignani is a nice place to visit but I think this is one of those, visit once seen enough places. Don't get me wrong, some of the wines are quite nice (we bought a half case), but the sitting areas and common spaces leave... More

My husband and I recently visited and have mixed feelings about the visit. On the bright side, we did like the wines we tasted. Our wine tasting fee ($5 I think) allowed us to select 6 wines so we each chose different wines to get a diverse sampling. Having visited many wineries in Maryland and Virginia, the wines were pretty... More

Their tasting is very expensive and even if you go with a coupon (groupon) it is still a rip off. the "pours" are more like sips, and I could not taste enough wine to figure out if I liked it. There were no wines worth buying and I'm not that fussy!! In addition to the small pours, we had to... More
