“Hidden Gem”
Reviewed April 5, 2012

This winery on Knott's Island is not much to look at initially but the wines are really good considering the location and the owners are great people. My wife and I really liked the Grand Ole Osprey red wine and bought several bottles.

Reviewed March 1, 2012

Enjoy the drive there...really like the fruit picking but the wine testing is fun. Not a fan of their wines

“ok, but not worth the drive”
Reviewed July 19, 2011

The view of the water is beautiful. A great place to have a picnic and just relax. If you are going to visit a winery skip this one. There were only 4 wines available for tasting the day we visited. We were given samples in plastic cups. The ladies working were not rude but we certainly didn't get any "warm fuzzies" from them. She was more worried about the people picking in the u-pick peach orchard coming in and letting the air conditioning out. Yes, they have a u-pick peach orchard, the website also said they had apples and grapes when they are in season, but the farm items are cash only and felt like the price were a little high. They do take credit cards for wine purchases. I did buy a bottle of SnowGeese, it was quite tasty but a little pricey. We had a nice time because we made a day of it and drove in to Virginia Beach. We didn't feel like the winery was worth the time it took to get there and there is nothing else around.
