Visited on a Monday for the reserve wine tasting and loved it! Jack was a great tour guide. Very friendly and knowledgeable. Got to try several wines and found a new favorite! I would return.

Short and sweet tour! The guide was nice and knowledgable. Cheese squares and crackers with the wine. Yes! The tavern next door is a good place to grab lunch.

Our daughter and son-in-law were visiting our home from Seattle, so we decided to drive about an hour to visit the winery on Valentine's Day. Unfortunately, by the time we got there, the tours were sold out! We purchased wine tastings for $8, and did enjoy the selections. As well, we received the tasting glasses to take home. We would...

We wanted to do something different for us for Valentine's Day, so we went for a winery tour, tasting, and lunch. The tour was informative and it was interesting to learn some of the old and new methods used in the winemaking process. The wine tasting was also informative and they provided a paper describing each wine and a pencil,... More

This is a really nice winery, it's easy to find although the sign when you get there doesn't jump out and it's easy to drive by the gate then realize you are there. You enter into the main building which has a wine store and a gift store. We were able to go straight on the tour which starts with... More

So, it's not Napa, nor the French wine country, however, this quaint out of the way winery in Virginia is a pleasant experience. We opted for the premium wine tour (advance reservations required), at $36 / person. Our host was Bob - knowledgeable, friendly and funny. An informative tour of the winery, followed by a sit down tasting and discussion... More

This place lives off its name not its wine sorry but the wine wasn't great nor the charge .it is like any other winery no big deal except the name .I thought it was expensive and a tourist trap so don't go unless you are someone's guest or it is free !

We have visited our share of wineries and I was reluctant to do one of the tours as I usually find that the guests just want to get some free wine and aren't really serious. We opted for the premium tour and there were just four of us plus Bob the tour leader. The young couple with us were fairly... More

Visited the winery with my two sister and two nieces as a girls day trip. The tour of the winery was very informative and we got to see some artifacts from the winery early years. The wine was good and we got to keep our glass.

Since we were short on time but wanted to check out the wines anyway, we choose to do a wine tasting and skip the tour. The gentleman running the tasting was very knowledgeable and I actually learned a thing or two. The wine tasting also included a much heavier poor then I am used to which was nice, however this...
