I had previously been to Phillip Carter Winery for a traditional tour and tasting. That was a nice experience. If you want to do that look for a Groupon or similar deal. 1/24/2015 was the third annual Blessing of the Vine ceremony hosted by Phillip Carter Winery. 11 local wineries participated. It is fashioned on an ancient ceremony that originated... More

Visited on a very cold day in November. Lovely wine tasting! We all enjoyed our brief visit. I would encourage you to visit this winery if you are in the area.

We visited back in August, 2014 and had a good experience with the person doing the tasting and the wines were decent. Returned with friends for a tasting on Sunday, November 2. Terrible experience! The young man doing the tasting obviously was not interested in his work. He dumped the wine in the glasses and rattled off the descriptions rapidly... More

We were there two years ago and thought the wines wer good, and enjoyed the music and layout on a Sunday afternoon. this year, the wines were a disappointment, and couldn't even hear the guitar player while tasting! Seems a simple solution to connect the music (at a low volume) in the tasting room. There is a lot of competition... More

Good wine in a small winery and vineyard. They have seating inside and out. Very pleasant staff. They did not rush us out although we arrived close to the closing time.

Wine tasting at this lovely winery should be on everyone's list for the fall. The mountain scenery coupled with award-winning local wines will provide a day of entertainment. On the way from the winery, stop at one of the local orchards to pick apples or for your designated driver, purchase some local cider. Make reservations early and consider joining their... More

Brought our dog along and did an outdoor tasting; we found the Governor Fauqiuer white to be quite tasty and had a glass enjoying the scenery in their outdoor lounge area which has beautiful views of the surrounding mountains and of the vineyard itself. They area bit off the beaten path which makes for an incredibly peaceful experience.

One of my favorite wineries ...I am a member. Enjoy a glass after a tasting EVERY day of the year! And get in a game of corn hole.

Nice wines (especially reds) and a friendly staff. The tasting room is a modern large, open space with lots of windows overlooking the vineyards.
