As our very knowledgeable Tasting Barista pointed out, this is a boutique winery where the winemaker's focus is on quality, not quantity....and it shows! Every single wine was obviously handcrafted and carefully nurtured through the aging process. The Chardonnay is aged in acacia wood giving it a much more subtle wood note vs the often overpowering oak. All of the... More

It was our first visit but definitely won't be our last. The setting is gorgeous; the views are spectacular with lovely outdoor patios. The wine tasting was interesting; we're "big red" fans and were impressed with the 2011 Bloodstone. We enjoyed a bottle with a salami/cheese platter and hummus/olives that we purchased there while enjoying the view from the patio.... More

Visited this beautiful place only to find meager tasting amounts but purchased a bottle and some food for enjoying the scenery outside. We could plainly see a wedding shaping up there so no big deal until we were hustled out of there because of the wedding. No sign, no indication to us that we were on a time limit. Total... More

The challenge with many VA Vineyards are the various driveways... gravel that's graded or some with pot holes... A few that are actually paved as well. This one is completely paved and we were HAPPY to see that, considering it's one of the steepest driveways we've come across! But it's impressive to see how they have vineyard growing along such...

If you want great wine with stunning views this is the spot. Settled atop a hill the winery overlooks the foothills of the Shenandoah river-great place for weddings or just a nice place to go for a tasting...

There was a pretty area. They sell some snacks. We tasted the wines and there was nothing we wanted to purchase. There is a nice picnic area though so I would consider going for that, but not just to drink the wine.

We were here for our friends bridal shower, the views are simply amazing, the garden beautiful! This is absolutely a destination to stop at for relaxation. They had live music when we were there, the outdoor seating is spectacular, the indoor is rustic and beautiful as well. We will absolutely be back.

A group of 5 of us went in and as soo as we arrived, we were very excited. The view is amazing and the outside terrace is large and very nice. However once we walked in, it kinda went downhill... We paid $8 each to try 6 wines and the lady helping us had very poor people skills. The majority... More

This place had the worst customer service imagineable. We were treated like a cattle herd. Not relaxing, not fun. Miserable staff. Mediocre wine. The only redeeming factor was the scenery. I would never return.

My husband and I visited this winery one Mother's Day and had a good time. The view was pretty, the wine was good, and the staff was mostly friendly. The young lady that helped us was a little new so she had to ask questions of another staff member. The other staff member rolled her eyes and puffed every time... More
