Barrel Oak has a large, beautiful tasting room to accommodate larger crowds. Its bar is staffed by knowledgeable and attentive pourers who provide good insights into the wines being tasted as well as conversation about the Virginia Wine industry. There are two paths to take on the menu for the $10 fee that share the same opening and closing wine... More

Barrel Oak had an expansive tasting room with a large loft area with a separate bar. There is a large fireplace on the ground floor that they keep going, and also live music occasionally in a side room. Can accommodate large numbers of people well, without feeling crowded. Also lots of outdoor seating with great view.

Took the kids and folks to BOW today for a relaxing Sunday afternoon. Arrived about 12:45 and snagged a couch and some rockers by the fire...heavenly! Brought our own cheese tray which was good because they didn't seem to have much food for purchase (they were out of baguettes so it was good we had 2 kinds of crackers). Staff... More

I'd like to begin by saying, I've been here multiple times and have enjoyed the experience each time but all were overshadowed by an employee I dealt with today. The positives: I love the dog-friendly atmosphere, the indoor/outdoor space is nice, parking is plentiful, bathrooms are clean, and the wine tastes good. Today's experience, however, left me disappointed: my friends... More

Went with wife for wedding anniversary and two other wineries on a Saturday. Read the other reviews. A very large commercialized place but fun for all types. The inside is crowded but fun with tasting areas, food, and separate rooms, picnic tables outside... Was like a tailgate for wine drinkers but really fun!! Saw people on getaways, wedding parties, and... More

BOW is a beautiful winery with amazing views of the surrounding hills and mountains. Especially now with the change of season. The staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. I don't know of any other winery that is dog friendly. They have a large selection of wines which are reasonably priced. Highly recommend if you have a free weekend. With the... More

Visited yesterday afternoon. Granted it was busy because of the beautiful Fall day. Too crowded, wine bottle prices have jumped significantly in two years, and too loud!!! Bluemont, and Afton Mountain were much better experiences, better wines, better servers, and better prices. After visiting in 2012, and 2014, we will move on. There was far from a relaxing Sunday afternoon... More

we visited the winery Sunday with our 8 month golden retreiver and our family. Terrific location, approx. 50 minutes west of Arlington. Many dog owners there with there well behaved pets. The wine is very good, the workers go out of their way to make you feel wanted. Food trucks on the property offer a nice assortment of prepared food.... More

While this place has a super laidback vibe with kids and dogs running around, it still maintains an elegant country charm. We showed up on a rainy Saturday and ponied up at the upstairs bar, trying the standard tasting of reds and whites - complete with the "Chocolate Lab" for dessert! I definitely want to come back in the spring... More

Barrel Oak has a spectacular view. It sits on top of a hill that overlooks the mountains and a couple of other wineries. My husband and I have visited 3 times now. On weekends it can be very crowded. As a happy hour in the evening, it is nice and quaint. There is a large selection of wines. I'm more... More
