This was my second visit to Swedenburg and it has gone straight downhill!
Our first visit a few years ago was very comfortable, nice staff, nice ambiance and plenty of people visiting and relaxing. Wines were just ok.
Our recent visit was horrendous. Staff looked at us when we came in as if we were putting them out of thier way. They were not helpful or friendly. We stayed through a shared bottle that none of us enjoyed. Our second bottle was the Reisling which was un-drinkable. We even went so far to ask if the bottle had turned.
My first visit introduced me to the Ellen Crosby wine county mystery books which were written around this winery and other areas of Loudoun County. I highly recommend the books but I see now why Ellen Crosby no longer sites this winery as her source. It would be an embarrassment. If you get a chance, check out the books! The current staff had zero idea about the book series when I asked :(
