This was our first time visiting DuCard Vineyard and to say we were very pleased is an understatement. The location, the wines and the staff were more than wonderful. We visited on a Sunday afternoon and it was quiet and so peaceful out on the patio area. They offer a good choice of food to add to your glass or... More

Drove out to DuCard Vineyard on a beautiful summer's day. It is a beautiful drive, though a little long from Charlottesville (about 1 hour), though it is well worth it. The winery facilities are very nice and the views from their patio of the mountains are beautiful. The staff was very knowledgeable in presenting some very good wines. Bring a... More

My wife and I have been visiting many of the wineries throughout northern VA over the past few years. At first, they were ' pretty good for VA wine'... Lately (2015) they are all improving. That said, DuCard is in a different league than the majority of VA wines. If you like a full bodied Red (like a CA Zinfandel)... More

DuCard is the best winery I have ever been to! There is not one wine here that I dislike. In fact, DuCard is where I learned to like red wines. My two favorite wines are the Cab Franc (very smokey and spicy) and the 2nd Corps White (semi-dry and delicious). The new addition to the existing tasting room/patio is also... More

A pleasant surprise with a friendly staff and great wine. A beautiful setting in the mountains by a creek. A very enjoyable visit.

This looks like I could be a lot of fun. They have live music at times, not while we were there. The Norton was pretty good. The pourer was friendly and fun.

We visited DuCard for their wine and chocolate event and were also pleasantly surprised that they had live music as well. Our chocolate pairing ended up just being my wife and I and we had a great time getting to know Scott the Proprietor and Anh Thu the Chocolatier of Joy Bliss Raw. The Wines of DuCard are some of...

This winery is near old rag and the Shenandoah mountains, we decided to visit after a weekend in Little Washington, VA which is not far from this. The grounds are very pretty. The tasting room is okay, didn't think it was one of the prettiest in va but we were suprised with the quality of the wine. We purchased 2... More

A beautiful setting and fantastic wines. Favorite is petit verdot,viognoir and C'est trop! Recently, we served petit verdot to friends who never said anything nice about Virginia wines and were very, very impressed.

Myself and 3 of my girlfriends were taken to this winery while on a 5 hour winery tour. We liked the winery and all together we bought about 5 bottles of wine. Our wine pourer was very friendly. I don't remember her name, but she's a retired educator. We will probably venture back here one day.
