The Happy Gilmore of Wineries
Apr 2021 • Couples
So... when you are looking for a nice relaxing wine tasting with ambience, atmosphere, and good wine, do not look here. This place specifically caters and markets itself to non wine drinkers. Just read the reviews and you will notice how many people rave about the sangria pitchers and the beer. They also rave about the dog policy. Not many talk about the wine being good... and most that say the wine is even ok talk about how expensive it is. More than one excuse this by saying that you are paying for the atmosphere. Well, if you enjoy an atmosphere where unattended children are throwing rocks at your car as you drive up, or where the large party crowd of drunk people that stepped right out of "People of Wal-Mart" are everywhere, drunk talking VERY LOUDLY, then this is your place. Someone said "it's great for families"... well... that's true, if you're family likes taking children and dogs to open lawn parties where everyone is drunk. Super family friendly. If you are looking for a nice, quiet winery with REALLY good wine, then there is a great winery right next door. BOW is a winery that resembles Happy Gilmore before he got serious about playing. He was just masquerading as a golfer to get money. BOW is a party spot for beer drinkers, Bachelorette parties, and those that detest what they might consider the stuck up atmosphere of other wineries. Bring your cut off jeans, your old rock and roll t-shirts, and let your kids and dogs run free. This is no place for personal space and relaxed conversation. This is a party spot!

Always enjoyable
Dec 2020
My husband and I stopped here in our way south for just a short bit, but it was fun and relaxing just the same.
Due to the Covid things are a bit different but the bartender recommended we try the splits and we did. They were perfect, and we ended up buying a couple bottles to take with us.
We try to get here at least once a year or two when we travel. They are friendly and laid back, and pet friendly which is great because we travel with our dog and there aren’t too many places on the road to bring him “in” with us.
We look forward to stopping in again on our next road trip.

First time visit: outstanding experience!
Sep 2020
Our first time. With Maddy, the rescue dog! One of the things that enticed me to purchase the $295 package was that they are so pet friendly and the many precautions they are taking with COVID ( go away COVID). I followed up with a couple phone calls and was so pleased with the hospitality and assistance. Why we loved our experience:

-the views. oh the views. Such a perfect day to be outside.
-the package I purchased for my fiancé's BD was well worth it: special patio seating, preferred parking (fiance has bad knees so this was great!), privacy, they brought a water bowl for Maddy, numerous choices for sampling wine & beer. Whatever we didn't spend we were able to take home in wine purchases and we have 5 bottles for holiday gifts. Even a great book of dogs at wineries - that was such a special treat.
-excellent hospitality and attention to our table. Genuine too. Remember to TIP!!
-not too far from Northern VA (Old Town). Easy access off 66.

There were SO many people there: couples, families, lots of dogs and everyone was social distanced and the Barrel Oak team was making sure everyone was following the guidelines.

No Customer Service
Aug 2020 • Couples
Joined the BOW by Mail which is supposed to include free shipping or a 2 free glasses of wine. Since the winery was closed during the Covid pandemic they stopped the free glass of wine. I can understand that. July's red was a Cab Franc when I went to pick up the bottles I was told that the bottles of Cab Franc were in the warehouse downstairs and I could have a bottle of house red or I could comeback for the Cab Franc. I requested that being it is BOW by MAIL they could mail it to me.
The owner came out and said that he had the right to substitute a house red for any red and a house white for any white. And I had no choice but take the house red.

Obviously we are no longer members of the winery.

Great views, so so wine
Jun 2020
Beautiful views, with lots of outdoor seating, friendly staff, and great pizza, however not the highest quality wine. The first wine we ordered was off (like it had been stored too long in a hot area) and second was okay but not great. Overall, it was nice to be outside and enjoy the views while eating lunch. Loved the pizza so much we got two!

Amazing staff and great beer and wine
Jan 2020 • Couples
What an incredible place. First off the minute we walked in, we were greeted with a huge welcome. We started wine a wine tasting and it was very well received with just the right amount of knowledge from the staff (Ashley and Mackenzie were very knowledgeable and friendly and very good with our dog ( yes they are dog friendly- they even have amazing gelato for pups) I went over to try their home brewed beers as well and Richard took amazing care of me. Congratulations to the management for hiring people who truly care about their customers experience
We all cant wait to go back soon and are really looking forward to when the weather improves as they have beautiful grounds.

Thank you

Pick the 2015 Cabernet!
Sep 2019
Beautiful grounds, great space for a family picnic or even visiting family members with dogs for a reunion✌️ My husband and I were doing a road trip for Labor Day, and stopped in to try the wines as recommended by one of our friends. We thought it was charming and the wines were decent, but I’m not sure about the kid- friendly atmosphere encouraged🤔 but to each their own...
Definitely pick the 2015 Cab!

Stopped in for a quick bite to eat and a glass of wine, on our way to the beach. It was a cool, drizzly, Saturday. BOW was hopping! Fun atmosphere, dogs, kids, couples, groups of friends. Music was just setting up. We had the stone fired pizza, delicious! Multiple fire pits set up by the picnic table outside. They also have a tap house for the non-wine drinkers. Very friendly staff.
