After stopping at two of the "trendy" wineries in the area, we stopped here. Less crowded and the bartenders doing the wine tasting actually knew their stuff! We ended up staying for a couple of glasses and took three bottles home. Great place!

The Farm house at the top of the hill makes for a beautiful scenery. Even in the rain looking at the hills and vineyard was so majestic. Great place for a small wedding, family reunion, or just a big group of friends. The winery has excellent red and white wines. The owners are very accommodating to help you with your... More

This is my second time at this winery, I came back because I enjoyed the wine I purchased on my first trip. I enjoyed tasting last years wine. Purchased a few bottles. The hostess made an excellent restaurant recommendation for supper. Will return when I am in the area.

Mixed reactions to this visit. It is a nice setting. But the tasting room around the edges is filthy. Just don't look. Do what you went there for -- taste the wines. Some interesting wines to sample. One in particular is a hopped Chardonnay. Why? Because they could. To me this gets away from wine making to beverage making --... More

We visited this winery and a few others while in the Afton area. While their wines were solid, there was nothing very memorable about this winery. Good wines, but nothing memorable. It's worth a stop in you're nearby, but I wouldn't plan a trip to just this winery.

We arrived late in the afternoon but were still welcomed and given a good tasting session by the knowledgeable lady server. Free tasting if you buy a bottle of wine. Not a big tasting room but nice and unusual wines.

Friendly servers in a nice rural setting. Free tastings for military and teachers! Cabernet Franc recently won an award and it was well deserved. A cellar selection to wait on for a few years.

The tasting room is somewhat old and uninviting, and the wines are pretty average. But the people are nice, and they seem to get a pretty decent crowd there on weekends. Particularly with the live music they had the day we visited.

Always enjoy visiting Cardinal Point, friendly staff, quality wines and I prefer smaller production where the focus is on great wine using quality local grapes. Their annual Oyster Festival is outstanding........check them out!

We knew we only had time for one vineyard in Afton and had selected Cardinal Point. Overall, we now wished we would have selected the other one. Service: Henry seemed uninterested during the wine tasting. Vineyard: No views here. All of the common area's sit beneath the vineyard. Tasting: Based on the vineyard we visited the day before, this one... More
