Small and not much happening. Nice location but not quite up to par. They will probably have it together in a few more years.

Great hosts, fun tasting. Close to the Great Wicommico River. Small fun winery. Wine was nice. Not great not bad. Tasting was a few bucks. They make a very yummy sangria you can stop by and get a glass. Little shop with gift items.

Ladies running the tasting bar seemed overwhelmed and reaped themselves instead of engaging the customer. Overpriced for quality of product and seemed to showcase the unique bottles rather than the wine. Wanted to like it but really didn't. Wine r wasn't very good and the...More

Old tasting room, but it was well taken care of and had charm. People were very nice. Had a large variety of wines, and most were pretty good.

We weren't planning on stopping at this winery, but after talking to Good Luck he advised to stop at all the wineries we could on the trail that they all try to work together. So we added Athena to our list for the day. What...More
