I bought a deal on LivingSocial for a full tasting and 2 bottles of wine since I like trying new wineries. When you pull up - it looks very unassuming (the tasting room is in a Quansset Hut - and I am not even sure I am spelling that right) and were it not for the signs, you might wonder if you had the directions right. Open the door and step inside and they have done something different for their tastings.
Guests sit at a long table and are able to look across at each other and they come around to you and pour the wines (generous too I might add!)
The winemaker (Wally) happened to be there that day and he was very comfortable answering questions we had - the gentleman leading the tasting was knowledgeable about the wines and had a sense of humor
Some of the other folks had brought crackers and cheese along with them and even shared with us (not something I had seen done before but a trick we will add to pay if forward to others along the way)
The website is not accurate - they have more than twice the amount of wines shown and there was not a single muscadine grape in the bunch !
Without a LivingSocial voucher - there is a nominal charge for the tastings ($5 for any five of the whites and/or $5 for any of the reds. The reserves are $1 each)
All-in-All - SIlkHope was a really great find and we hope to visit them again soon.
