“Pretty Place, but not worthwhile”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

We were driving by and noticed the beautiful grounds and wanted to stop in for a taste. They only have reds... they charge $10 per person for 5 wine tastes, which are typical "tasting" size and you get to keep the glass. They didn't offer oyster crackers or a way to clear your palate in between tastes, which is rather odd. They did offer to sell truffles and other items though.

We didn't like the wines much either, but to each their own!

Service was decent though.

“Nice presentation but light on the tasting.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012 via mobile

It's a nice tasting in a pretty setting but tasting was expensive and only the 2010 Topiary stood out of the five tastings.

“NOT kid/family friendly”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

Only offer dry, red wines with the exception of a Rose which I enjoyed on a warm, fall day after apple picking. Interesting about the other reviews on here because I also felt that the staff was cold and even a bit rude. Definitely NOT family friendly!

“cold reception, mediocre wine”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

The place is impressive, new and very modern, but the quality of the wine not good. Our tasting server was not helpful. Directions using Mapquest take you to the wrong place.

“Rude - stay away”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

They apparently recently opened to the public, and a mistake we had to be their guinea pigs.

While the wine quality was good, that was quickly turned into vinegar with their rudeness and as my companion stated "why are the women in middleburg so cold". It was something we kept experiencing in certain areas of this part of Virginia. Lots of stuck up folks around here. We left after being treated rudely and did not purchase any wine.

They need to take a class in hospitality and learn some kindness.

I suggest you Pass on by and don't stop. Too many other wineries that offer a true experience with no attitude.
