We live nearby and have taken guests to dinner here. They are consistently surprised at the service, the bill of fare and the ambience. Very reminiscent of London or Paris.

The setting of this vineyard is beautiful. Is has been beautiful since I first visited in the 90s and is even better now-I would say one of the best in Virginia for a couple’s getaway. Staff are very friendly. Their red wines are mediocre. Whites...More

This winery offers a broad tasting of many wines. They were all good and I enjoyed the reds the best. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly. Come, taste, your ruins and hang out.

Library tasting was different from the typical wine tastings. You get to pick 6 wines to taste at your table for $25. They're known for their Cab Franc which was actually well worth it! The views from the library were gorgeous! You can't take your...More

Ended a wonderful wine tour here. Huge disappointment. Crowded, unwelcoming feel of a cattle heard. The place smelled horribly if sulfer... Overpowering. Also fruit flies everywhere. Not a single fruit fly at any of the other vineyards. Tasting was very impersonal. They tout the Octogon...More
