This is a breath-taking winery with some excellent wines to offer. Definitely still in the new to the wine making business, they are making their own wines and have been for a couple years with the help of Chrysalis across the street (the two wineries being so close together makes them a wonderful pair to visit in a single outing!)
The staff is super friendly and helpful. The wines range from excellent to good. I spoke with the owner a couple of times and he has a real passion for wine and wanted to create this first class facility for people to enjoy VA wine at. I think that it is a must visit.
Of all the wineries that I have visited in VA (49), this one had the best baguette and some wonderful cheeses to pair with their very good wines.
I usually do not care for the fruit wines.....but the Apple and Apple/Raspberry wines here were so good, that my wife and I bought a number to feature at a gathering of neighbors that we are planning for the following weekend. That said....I really enjoyed their Viognier, Cab Franc, Traminette, Chambourcin and Rkatsiteli (which I had never heard of until here).
We brought two of our children (9 and 14) who had a wonderful time on the large lawn through frisbees. The upstairs is no children, both inside and on the deck, so it is friendly both for those who want to bring family and those who want a break.
This is a wonderful winery that will just get better with age!
