Great location, extensive wine list, great tasting room and lots of wine accessories and snacks to purchase. The only downside was the personality of the staff that day. Worth a return trip.

We found this winery a few years ago and we always made it a point to stop here and taste and purchase (cough cough) a case or two of wines. We just came back from visit and were disappointed. The staff ignored us when we waited in the tasting room until another couple came in. And we were disappointed with the wines. It seems they have expanded selection and with it the quality of the other wines suffered. We only left with 2 bottles and a feeling of unwelcome. We wandered over to the small shop and the pie selection was lacking (but with a festival coming this weekend, that may be why).
My husband and I go wine touring and tasting a lot, and this place just really fell flat this year. Which is a disappointment. It is hard to find half decent PA wines, and we always counted on Greendance to be a decent place...but not anymore.

The wine is delicious. The last time I visited I left with three bottles. The prices are standard to other local wineries. The employees are all very nice.

My friends and I went to Greendance Winery at Sandhill to catch up on old times. There was a great group called Abacus Jones playing on stage. We got to do wine tasting and was able to purchase some wine. You can buy food there or bring your own. It was a wonderful fall setting among the apple orchard and beautiful flowers.

My family and I have been visiting Greendance Winery since it opened 5 years ago. Prior to this last visit, I would have rated this establishment 4 out of 5, however it appears as though their success as changed the way employees treat guests/customers. This past weekend was beautiful so we figured it would be a nice time to sit outside and enjoy the entertainment at Greendance. Things started off great with wine sampling but was cut short once we hit our 3rd sample of wine. We were informed by one of the wine tasting servers "that we have had enough", insinuating that we were drunk (after 3 samples - less than 1 oz ). The wine servers informed us that they were only permitted to give 3 samples. Well, I can tell you this, in the past 5 years I have had more than 3 samples. Additionally in the past, the wine servers were fun, friendly and welcoming. We did not find this to be the case on Saturday, October 13, 2012. At any rate, we still purchased close to $250 in wine, cheese, pepperoni and crackers. We were hoping that the atmosphere would be better outside but we found that not to be true. That's where we met the food police. As we sat at the table, drinking their wine, eating their cheese, crackers and pepperoni we were told that we were not permitted to eat 1 thinly filled tortilia roll that we had brought. We were informed that they had food for us to buy if we were hungry. I explained that we purchased their food and all we brought was one shell. They had sandwiches for sale but I don't like eating premade sandwiches that may have been sitting around for some time. The food police were acting as if we had catered food delivered. The food police hung around our table to ensure we would not eat our 1 shell and continued to hang over the other guests as if we were children. In addition to the food police keeping an eye on what we were putting in our mouth, she was also not happy about us drinking wine out of something other than their cheap plastic glasses. So unfortunately, I'm going to have to leave what previously was my favorite winery and go back to my 2nd favorite Stone Villa. If anyone else experiences this, I encourage you to write. Do they have food for diabetics? What about people who have food allergies. It's not like they have a kitchen or menu that you can order from.
