This was our third trip to this winery and, our second tasting with Enzo who is so knowledgeable and people oriented. In fact, it is a shame that Enzo is not relegated to doing private tastings and spending more time with the patrons since he has such expertise.. For the first time ever, we were greeted by some harried woman... More

I went for a wine tasting that was said to include a gourmet lunch platter, tasting and tour. The tour guide was not familiar with anything about the wine making process, the equipment was in pieces so we couldn't see where it was broken down. Tasting was done standing up and rushed. But the worst was that the gourmet lunch... More

The tour was so slight, the wine tasting was fine. The cheese and meat platter was disappointing. The only saving grace was the wine was "Slavish". It was the people that we met that made up for the experience.

The Wine at the Sand Castle is not the best wine I've ever had, but the wine pairing/tasting put on by the owner is worth every penny of the $35/person charge, thoroughly enjoyed myself, learned so much about food pairing, some were very surprising and out of the box. I will be back

This winery is about an hour from home and the ride along the Delaware River to get there was lovely. The winery itself was a surprise. A castle looking building with beautiful grounds and a view of the river. Beautiful for events. We were there as part of 40th bday party group. We had a private tasting on the upper... More

This is our second visit to Sand Castle Winery. The tour guide was great, knowledgable, funny and very nice with the guests. After the tour we proceeded upstairs to the tasting. The main gentleman, Joseph, was the best ever. He made a large group of strangers laugh and enjoy the wine tasting with lots of information, jokes and just plain... More

After taking a wine pairing and tasting class we purchased a bottle of 2008 Riesling at the Sand Castle retail store in Warrington, PA which we stored in our wine cooler refrigerator for the past 2 months. When we opened it, it was undrinkable...so sour that we dumped the whole bottle!! We brought the bottle with us to the winery... More

Gorgeous setting, attractive building and outdoor terrace make this winery a very pleasant destination for an afternoon of sipping. Unfortunately, the wine tasting “experience” itself is a cut below the setting. Our tasting included thirteen – 13! – Wines, with no between-tastes glass rinses, no palate-cleansing crackers, and not a great deal of background on the specifics of each wine,... More

I purchased a Travelzoo deal for a wine tasting, tour and tapas. While the setting is beautiful, this was by far the most disorganized and understaffed winery and wine tasting experience I have been to. I say this as I have been to other wine tastings in PA, quite a few in the Hudson Valley, NY, the Finger Lakes and... More

We were pleasantly surprised by the information provided by Magdalena as she gave tour but when she was behind the bar and began pouring wine for the testing she was outstanding. 👍 We had 12 wines tasted from white to port. Her attention to detail and explanations were some of the best. We have traveled Sonoma, Russian river valley and... More
