I gave this winery only 3 stars because it was complete chaos while we were there. We obviously picked the wrong day to try BOW, a beautiful fall Sunday. The staff was very good and the pours for the tasting were generous but the entire time I was standing at the tasting bar there was a dog (on a leash)... More

When it is nearly 80 degrees on a fall day, there is nothing better to do than grab some friends and head out to Barrel oak. This was our first visit and it was really a great deal of fun. They have multiple tasting stations offering a dozen wines and a fun and helpful staff. After we identified our favorite... More

My wife and I visited with a group tour on a Saturday. The facilities are very nice and the service was good. We aren't wine experts but know what we like. There is a wide selection of wines and you can sample 12 of them for $12. The staff does a good job of explaining each wine. The prices are... More

I got to this winery after a 50 person bus tour had off loaded but the staff was up for the challenge. My server, Alex, was friendly and able to juggle the mass of people on his end of the bar inside (the group was outside). The winery is animal friendly and the couple next to me had the cutest...

My wife and I just reutrned from a Fall foliage and wine weekend getaway and visited Barrell Oak Winery because it seemed very popular. Well, it is very popular - very crowded and big, and with a nice big exposed beam tasting area, but very little useful seating other than outdoor picnic tables. They advertise as dog-friendly, which is a... More

I finally had the chance to taste all the Barrel Oak Wines today. The property was beautiful and you can tour the grounds to see behind the scenes without an escort! I also love that this place is dog friendly. I read a few reviews slamming this property due to the dogs and kids, but I personal disagree and feel... More

Enjoyed the tasting and the atmosphere at the winery. Excellent wine. Great place to take a picnic and enjoy a bottle of wine. They are dog friendly. The wines are at the higher end of the price point but they are good. We were there during the week and it was not crowded.

Wine: Good, scenery: good, service: good, wood fired pizza: good, and I've never seen such a dog-friendly place. Dogs here, there, everywhere. The guest musician was good, too. It was the type of summer day you wish would never end.
