We drove 3 hours to attend the Festival. Didn't need a reason to, besides the distillery tastings and the purchase of a select few of their Vodka's. They also had several food vendors, one including ChuckTown Mobile Seafood. This is the 2nd time we have enjoyed his food at this spot. He's got the freshest crab cakes and fried seafood,... More

We had just wrapped up another local tour and decided to take the gamble and drop in to FireFly and their sister operation at the vineyard. The staff knew their product and were somewhat attentive to our questions. We have done a number of wineries in VA since there are so many and the service here was just as good.... More

This was amazing! For 5bucks you get to try 6 different drinks and keep your shot glass. The Apple Pie moonshine with a little Carmel was bomb! A must do and see if you are in the area.

Sorry, we found this to be a waste of time. Unless you're a daytime drinker, there is really nothing here for you or your family. Perhaps because we have visited the vineyards in Michigan's Leelanau Penninsula and Old Mission Penninsula, we were very, very disappointed. I had read there was a sort of petting farm/animal area -- a couple of... More

We went with friends while on vacation. What a fun and different kind of activity instead of the usual touristy/historical activities! Charlotte was an amazing hostess who led our group on a great sampling session. We tried many moonshines,rums,whiskeys,vodkas, and bourbons. We also went next door to their winery. We were a bit surprised they only offered 5 wines, and... More

We overheard some locals talking about this place and made a visit to Wadmalow Island to check it out on their "Sippin' Saturday," which is most Saturdays once the weather is fair. One can try wine and spirits here and enjoy live music and the efforts of a food truck (we had some great local barbecue). We focused on the... More

Walking into a Distillery for the first time, I was unsure of what to expect. Wanda, the bartender was easy going, friendly and vary candid about the various flavours available for sampling. She also told us her favourite ways to enjoy some ~ and I can't wait to try them out on the back porch this summer. I would definitely... More

We went to visit this distillery as I enjoy Firefly tea flavored vodka and we were in the area. The products were good but we were poured tasting after tasting and sent on our way to the walls to select our preferred drink. Having been to several wine tastings, moonshine tastings, and other distilleries, this I will have to say... More

I've been to the winery here before and expected a similar experience but this side was quite different in good and bad ways. I liked the laid back atmosphere and the interactions with the staff (rather than just watching a video like in the winery), but some of the staff were not very attentive. I was with one who helped... More
