When they say that they are the fun loving winery, they really are. The owners and staff are very friendly and the tasting room is very cute. Their wines are very good, my favorite being the Pinot. Stop by on a Friday night for winedown.

Stopped here on the way between DC and Chincoteague Island. Some interesting wines, nice conversation, and now they are also craft brewing. So if one of you prefers wine and the other beer, this is a great place to stop.

Visited Costa Ventosa on June 9th, 2015 , and found the wine-tasting at this charming vineyard - my very first - to be a delightful experience. It was much more fun than I'd anticipated , and the owner and his staff were extremely courteous and professional. I look forward to my next "tasting" , perhaps in the Finger Lakes wine... More

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
