We had so much fun here! The owner did our wine tasting. He gave a fabulous presentation filled with history of winemaking. As a history buff I loved it! Loved that they have rescue dogs. Sorry we missed the oysters but will definitely come back for that. Beautiful location and good wines

The setting was lovely, but the wines were only ok. You have to sit outside on the covered patio, as there isn't enough room inside.

We biked from the Tides Inn to the vineyard. Great location and fun to see. We happened to be the first customers of the day and the owner explained our wine tasting. We liked all the wines and a few of us bought 2-3 bottles. At $28-$33 a bottle we liked the idea that we could buy from a local... More

Great wine tasting and staff is super friendly and accommodating. Oyster tacos are excellent to compliment the wines. You have the option to enjoy the wine tasting and then pick your bottle for a nice picnic on the go yard itself. Owner is around and will drop by your table to check up on you to see how you are...

It's our third visit, and each one gets better. The wines are getting better year after year, and they do a good job of pairing foods (especially oysters) on the weekends. The setting is beautiful, make sure to make this a stop if you are in the area and like wine

We rode our bikes from the Tides Inn to the vineyard. We did the wine tasting - 5 wines. A very knowledgable woman explained the characterization of each of the wines. We sat at long picnic tables in a screen porch surrounded by the vineyards. After the tasting, we went out into the yard where we enjoyed a lunch of... More

Great winery. Very hospitable host with a wonderful son. Great story of saving shelter dogs and giving them a purpose. Beautiful peaceful porch area for wine tasting.

This winery is a unique concept. They rescue dogs and have them in the vineyards protecting the vines from animals. They use the hidden fence system to protect the dogs but allow guests to walk through and pet the dogs. They do tastings and have oyster's and food. Fun visit. Very busy today.

I went on a girls' trip to explore the Northern Neck Artisan, Wine and Oyster trails. Having grown up in this rural area, it was a pleasant surprise to find so much going on. The owner of the winery gave us a private tasting and filled us in on the history of vineyards in Virginia. The wine was delightful and... More
