We visited for the first time for a friendly chili cook-off tasting between Eight Chains (one of our favorites) and 868. Upon our arrival, we bellied up to the bar and announced our intentions. We saw an enormous pretzel on a table that looked good and asked about ordering it for after our tasting; we figured we'd buy a bottle of something and enjoy the pretzel with it. We were informed by our hostess that we should order it now, because it takes awhile. We wanted to wait so that it didn't get cold. We were ignored as the pretzel came out after tasting the first two wines you offered that day. We were not impressed with any of your wines, enough to buy, so we retired to our table , ate our now cold pretzel, and left. Sorry, but we were not impressed.

I'm glad you had the chance to come visit us for our annual chili cook-off with our friends over at 8 Chains North, but I'm sorry that our timing was off from what you requested. We take pride in making sure our customers have a terrific experience with us - I wish we had known while you were still here so that we could have addressed the problem and made sure you were taken care of. We would love to have you return. If you'd like to give us another try, just let me know.

Had a couple of different wines for tasting. They are not many varieties and not enough alcohol for the price.

Our standard tasting includes six wines which at the moment include three whites, one rosé and two reds. We normally switch this to include more reds when the weather gets cool again. I hope you will try us again this fall as our small-batch wine selection does change frequently. Thank you for sharing your experience.

Wines were not that good, nor was the service. The only nice one was busy checking on all the guest, but the guy we had didn't tell us what chocolate went with what wine. Told me I didn't know real wine because I told him I like white wine. He talked rude about the other wine makers in the area. I will never go back, we stopped in on a chance so I guess that was our chance. Beautiful setting though.

My husband and I love going to wineries. Today we tried 868 Estate Vineyard and were disappointed. The wines we tasted were fabulous. If the staff was more friendly and accommodating I would have rated them a 5. First when we arrived we waited for almost 10 minutes before even being greeted. Then when we started our tasting we were rushed. There were two women that started their tasting before us and we were finished with our tastings at the same time. The staff needs to work on their customer service. The wine is great.

We had an excellent experience at this winery. The staff was very nice and knowledgeable, we enjoyed the grounds with firepits, and we liked many of the wines we tried. I would definitely return.

We left Breaux, across the street from 868 Winery, truly disappointed. So we nearly didn’t stop here thinking we’d have another unwelcoming experience. But we had a fabulous tasting! Shirley was welcoming, witty and informative. We enjoyed our tastings and talking to Scott Miller (pictured), too. I had the tastings with truffles! Yummy! My sister had the standard tasting but enjoyed some of my truffles, too. I can imagine this winery as a hopping place on warmer days of spring & summer. They also have a restaurant on-site! We’ll be back to 868! Thanks Shirley and Scott! 👍🏼

I am so happy to hear about your experience with us last weekend and Scott and Shirley will be delighted to know you mentioned them in your review. We will look forward to seeing you this summer for our live music in the pavilion - or for any other excuse you come up with to come back! Thanks for helping spread the word for us - Nancy

I'm glad you enjoyed your time in our Manor House from the 1840's that we use for group tastings and wine club events. I hope you come visit us again this summer when you can be outside in our pavilion listening to live music! Thank you for the review!
