Stopped by this winery on our way from Cape Charles to Chincoteague Island. I'm so glad we made a stop here. The place is owned by a very nice gentleman who runs the entire place himself with the help of his wife and 12-year-old daughter. Tastings are 50 cents each, and they have great pizza that they cook on property in a pizza oven outside on their patio. One whiff of the pizza and you'll have to get yourself one... and you won't be sorry!!

The Red Kiss was my favorite wine, but all were average.

Cute dogs roam the property, as well.

Our innkeeper recommended a visit to this winery and so we arrived right at noon on a Saturday.
We ordered one margarita pizza $8.50 (baked in their famous outdoor oven) to share (the pizza about the size of a paper plate) along with a $4.00 glass of wine each. Later we sampled 2 other wines @ 50 cents ea. and ended up buying not only wines but also some delicious freshly baked ciabatta bread $2ea to go. There are resident dogs to greet you and then return to napping. Dogs are not allowed in the tasting room w/indoor seating but are permitted on the adjacent covered terrace w/ample picnic table seating near the outdoor oven. There is an extensive mowed field for dog walking/playing and also a bench for resting just off the terrace. Try the Red Kiss for something different. Bottle makes a nice gift. Wines were in the $14 range. Everyone working hard to serve.
Understand that a reservation may be advisable in the evenings for pizza.

Bloxom Winery is a real jewel on the peninsula. We tasted there Chardanay, Merlot and Cabernet Franco. The Chardanay was fermented without oak which gives it a much more fruity taste and more important,y wife loved it. The Merlot was very good also but was edgeded out by the full bodied Cab. We bought both the cab and Chardanay. We then had two classes of the Cabernet Franco with a pizza on the veranda with the two dogs. It really was delightful and I only wish we lived around here to make this a routine. If you like good wine, friendly people and dogs (you don't have to like the dogs but I bet you will) you must put Bloxom Winery on your itinerary.

Wine and pizza was very good, had to have some of both. Great place to stop off for some refreshments and dog petting (dogs very friendly). The place is not easy to find, no signs along the way, not that we saw anyway. You have to put it in your GPS.

We took a little day trip to this winery while staying in Chincoteague Island. it was about 25 minutes south of the Island. The winery was very cute and was well set next to the vines. The place was small but had plenty of seating both inside and outside. Outside it had a covered terrace with seats and a wood fire stove. The stove was for their wood fired pizza served only on Saturday. And as luck would have it, it was Saturday when we visited and the pizza was pretty good. Definitely good enough to be paired with a bottle of their Merlot. The owner and his daughter were there and were very pleasant. It was a very nice excursion and sitting there under the terrace with a glass of wine and a nice slice was a good way to spend an afternoon.

I would say that the wine was nothing special but the owners good mood, pizza and nice cozy feel of the place made up for that. I would recommend this as an escape if you are on the Island or passing by.
