I do a lot of wine tasting in Virginia, and had heard Linden was very good. After visiting, I was not disappointed in the wine. Lindines Whites, especially, stood out above most other Virginia vinyards. The knock on Linden is that it's not very customer friendly. I found this to be true as well.
There's really nowhere to sit and have wine at this winery unless you're a member of their club. Linden has a lot more attitude than other Virginia wineries, and you get a distinct hint of snobbiness. I talked to the owners of another vineyard, and they said that the guy you owns Linden really likes making wine and doesn't like people. It comes across!
Businesses always do turn out as a reflection of the mindset of those who create and run them. Lynden really reflects a misanthropic talented winemaker.
