Very nice selection of wines from the local region. Good whites from dry to sweet and tasty reds from soft to bold. Guys you must try their Port! Has an intristing twist!! Very good I must say. Also try their Phoenixville Pa tasting room with many Balsomic and olive oils for the sampling. Fun place to hang out as well!

The enticement mentioned twelve wine tastings per couple. We were expecting to get to taste six (6) wines per person. WOW !! We sampled thirteen (13) wines in total. A Highly entertaining gentleman explained how to taste each wine AND what to pair foods it with. The tour guide of the castle and wine cellar was also very informative and... More

When we first drove up to the winery, it was a beautiful setting. The building is impressive. The views were beautiful. The inside of the building reminded me of a hotel lobby, not a winery. The wine tour was short but informative. Although it was interesting to see the equipment used for the harvest and processing, the equipment itself was... More

The tasting was interesting, wines were paired with chocolates and nuts, informative and fun presentation. However, you stand during the tasting, which would be fine but the table was low and it was an awkward set up. A bar height table would have been better. There were about 15-20 in our tasting group. We had a Living Social coupon for... More

I have known the owner Joe Maxon for over 25 years and was a supplier to him when he first opened and was working out of a trailer on top of the wine vats now 25 years later he realized his dream of building a castle on the concrete slab directly over the vats and it is beautiful, I knew... More

I suppose it's a hazard when you plan interactive tours and booths for a living, but this Winery tour, though featuring a number of good wines, was disjointed and left visitors unclear of what was happening as if we were lost sheep. No greetings as you enter, no sectioned off areas to tell you what to do where, and a... More

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
