We toured the winery courtesy of SouthEast Expeditions, via kayak. Great small winery, good wines. Lots of fruit flies this time of year, but that's normal for small, rural wineries.

Excellent wine, excellent prices and excellent scenery make this place a winery to visit if you like wine. No gimmicks, no flash, no over the top tasting rooms, just delicious wine from $14 to $22 a bottle (tastings are $3 and do not include getting the glass which can be purchase for $4). The winery itself is at the end... More

Small vineyard, with a very nice and informed "tour" guide! Tastings have a small fee, but come with lots of information about the vintage and the vineyard! Area was very clean and easily accessed from the main highway . . .a very nice way to spend a little time on the Eastern Shore!

On our visit to the eastern shore just happened to see this sign on Rt 13 going south from ocean city to virginia beach. Absolutely recommend it. While I agree with the other "wine snobs" that this may not be the best wine around - it definitely is better than some of the over oxidized wine I've had at other... More

Stopped in here on a trip to Chincoteague Island. The staff was very helpful and nice, as were the other customers in the tasting room with us at the time. They gave us lots of great tips on the local area and could not have been friendlier! The wines were average (I'm from CA, so I'm a wine snob, sorry!)... More

We love to stop here, they make good wines and are keen to share them with you at their generous tasting facility. You are warmly welcomed and allowed to taste all their wines to decide what you might enjoy the most. The entire operation has a family feel and yet a decidedly European touch to the wines. Their un oaked... More

This is a very well established & wonderful winery. It is on the grounds of a handsome, historic home. The tasting facility is state of the art and the owners and folks who greet you are very knowledgeable and courteous.

I liked the non-oaked Chardonnay at about $17. A solid choice, if not slightly over priced. But the wines went up in price from there. Also, new policy of $3 per taster, for only a few (small) samples. Would be better if not charged if taster made a purchase. Merlot was nice as well. Well maintained dirt road access.

We enjoyed the wine, and found the employee knowledgeable and entertaining. The wine had a great taste, and the grounds were well manicured and a beautiful view.
