Late review but can't get this place out of my head. Went there mid August, it was sunny and beautiful! Although it was a quick whole day vineyard hopping in Virginia, I found this place the best among the rest. Wines were good and we were welcomed warmly. The duck pond/lake adds character to the place, especially when you are... More

Visited on a quiet Friday in early December. They were setting up for their staff party, but they were very happy to serve our tastings in their cozy tasting room, right next to the fireplace. Wine was good- Virginia wine is really improving! I have been visiting this area for 15+ years, and the wine is so much better now... More

Enjoyed sitting in the patio, listening to bluegrass music. Overlooking the lake and picturesque mountain in the background. Not music of a wine drinker, but my friends enjoyed their wine. This is a must if your out wine tasting in these parts.

Enjoyed the ambience of this winery, sitting by the duck pond and listening to live music on a Friday night with delicious food from a food truck.

Another winery recommended Doukenie to us and I'm glad we stopped. The wines were very good but it was the dessert wine that sold us. Hope’s Legacy goes perfectly with chocolate (which they provide). It was recommended that we drizzle it over vanilla ice cream, I can't wait to try it.

After visiting several vineyards along Virginia's wine trail, I can say that although this place is nice, it is not my favorite. The tasting area was like a feeding frenzy. There was nothing relaxing peaceful or serene about that. It was quite crowded on the day we visited and we felt more like we were being herded in and out.... More

My brother, husband, and I stopped here on an afternoon visiting wineries in the Northern Virginia AVA. Beautiful setting, and we loved the wines. My brother who lives in VA, joined their wine club. We are very familiar with Virginia's wines and really liked Doukenie.

We own a home in Leesburg, VA, a mere 20 minutes away from this lovely winery. Five years ago, we had visited when it was under another name. Now the owners have expanded and during the summertime, they have Friday Bistro nights with local restaurants supplying the food and local musicians performing on the huge patio. They have a sizeable... More

The wines are average but they offer one of the best locales in the area. Look out over a big pond with numerous seating and food options.

Out of all the vineyards we have been to, this is the first one I would want to bring my whole family for a picnic. Look at the photos to get a better idea of what I mean. Once I saw a man fishing in the pond with his young sons. Much to the delight of the kids, the fish... More
