Costa Ventosa was a pleasant surprise. I never imagined that I would visit a winery in Whaleyville, MD! The tasting room is tastefully decorated and is large enough to host a small party, but not too large where you would feel lost in the crowd. It’s a great place to sit down and enjoy a glass of wine with a... More

Fairly new winery. Nice tasting room, friendly people there, wine pretty good. We stopped here on the way to Chincoteague Island, VA. It was an enjoyable visit. Bought a couple bottles of wine as "souvenirs". Give it a try!

Very nice location and friendly and knowledgeable staff. Several of their wines recently won medals at the 6th Annual Winemasters Choice Awards competition in Maryland. My wife and I liked the pinot grigio and the vidal blanc. Great place to sit out on the porch and enjoy a glass of wine. Tastings are $5 for 9 wines and include a... More

Nice location but the wine is just OK.. For the same price you can get a good bottle of wine. I have been to tastings in Sonoma, Napa, and Italy.

KathrynDL, Owner at Costa Ventosa Vineyard & Winery, responded to this review

I agree! Unfortunately, the costs involved in winemaking in MD are comparable to making wine in California, Italy, or just about anywhere else. Especially for us little wineries. We strive to offer quality wines (and have won numerous gold medals in competition) at reasonable prices. More
