We've visited hundreds of wineries, breweries and distilleries throughout America and the world. Costa Ventosa is better than most. For $5 we each (3 of us) tasted each of their 8 wines, white, reds, dries and sweets. The vintner poured and explained each taste. Their wines were each good although the per bottle prices were a bit too high. They... More

Didn't know what to expect since I had never stopped at a winery. I gather this is more like a tasting room, tho a very nice one. We wanted a little time off the beach, since it was a little cool. But it was a nice drive to the winery, about 15 minutes from the 90 bridge. The women who... More

My husband and I stopped by this little winery on our way out of Ocean City, it only took us about 10 mins to get there. The owner was very friendly and down to earth. I did the wine tasting and my husband did the beer tasting and we thought both were a great variety. I would definitely recommend stopping... More

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

Husband and I were in the OC area this weekend and were looking for someplace new to go. I found Costa Ventosa online and decided to stop by. Their winery/tasting room is only about 15-20 minutes outside of Ocean City. The winemaker Kathy was very nice, she even let our two little dogs join us inside for the tasting. Her... 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!
