We visited on a beautiful sunny Saturday afternoon. You can purchase a tasting of 7 wines for $10. Glasses and bottles are also available and can be enjoyed on their lovely patio or picnic tables. You can bring your own food or order from their menu. We ordered the crab cakes and beet salad to enjoy with our bottle of... More

Having a certain mental image of all things "Trump", I was expecting something borderline tacky and gold-plated when we walked in. But the tasting room was very tastefully adorned. Large bar in the center of the room provided ample room for tastings. Seating areas both inside and out to enjoy a bottle and a bite to eat. Friendly and energetic... More

For our anniversary we decided to head down to Trump winery for lunch. We went on a Wednesday and it was not crowded at all. A young man from Vermont gave us our tastings and when he had to go to another couple, another person stepped in to continue our path. The wines were young as previously stated and needed... More

I visited this past Saturday for a bachelorette celebration. The tasting room was very crowded and felt more like a bar than a winery. Luckily, our large group had called ahead to reserve a spot, so we were shown to a little side nook with our own round bar and hostess (I don't actually know if that is what you... More

Dear Julia, Thank you so much for your kind words about your visit to Trump Winery. Making a reservation for a tasting for a large group is certainly the way to go. Especially on Saturdays which are our busiest days of the week. For the most relaxing winery experience, we recommend visiting us during the week. We will make sure... More

We went to Trump Winery this weekend as part of a birthday wine tasting event in late March 2015. We were received warmly by a host, and our party of 6 was fortunate to be shown a space immediately at the tasting bar. That was basically the highlight of our visit. The atmosphere in the tasting room on a spring... More

Stopped by this winery just to take a look.....decided to have lunch. The lunch and dessert were amazing! Sat outside to eat and the view was breathtaking! Tasted a few wines and ended up purchasing several bottles. Highly recommend!

We loved this visit, our second. Jett (and Chris) were wonderful, very knowledgeable and friendly, didn't rush us. The location is the main attraction for us: great views and lots of places to sit and enjoy the wine (which we really enjoyed, too). They have a good lunch menu, cheeses and crabcakes for us, but they also have heavier items... More

Buy the 5 winery tasting pass for $25. Superb value with many tastings per winery. At Trump, you get to keep your tasting glass. We found the wines a little young for our taste, but they were good. The cru was our favorite. It was a mix of a little chardonnay brandy with a delicious chardonnay. We asked about shipping... More

We visited Trump Winery over the Thanksgiving holiday with family while out on our own tour of the local vineyards. It was quite busy and we ended up joining with another couple for our tasting, but they were fun and friendly so it all worked out. The tasting price was reasonable. All of the wines were good, but the Cru... More
