We had to find out after noticing them planted with each row. Turns out they are like canaries in a coal mine: an early indicator of trouble. Roses are susceptible to two fungus that grapes are as well. Staff knew their wines and presented in an entertaining way. Live musician. Venue for a wedding later in the day we were... More

This winery is one of the most tranquil and beautiful ones -- small/medium sized with excellent wine that could be compared to these of Italian wines (my friends from Italy have mentioned that). Welcoming staff and picturesque views -- perfect for a nice picnick.

....but a bit disappointed in the Groupon they offered with a wine tasting and picnic lunch. Small amount of cheese (about 4 oz. and small amount of sausage)....they were out of crackers or bread for the cheese.....and a glass of wine was an additional $9.00. We had to stop somewhere else to have a real lunch. The Groupon also included... More

As members of the PCW club our views may be different than others, but every person we recommend to PCW loves it. Great selection of wines...tasting menu changes with the seasons as does the decorating in the tasting room. Lots to do for the family.

My wife and I purchased a voucher to see this winery from Travelzoo. It was quite a drive from our home in Fredericksburg and we expected to see more, but it was the... More

Set on a plateau, it has a 360 degree view of the mountains and farms in the area. The tasting is done at... More
