Nice senic drive in the country to this winery. You can also take your dog on a leash. Take a picnic and just enjoy yourself. Great friendly people here. Good wine too.!

Beautiful view relaxing and isolated. The wine is good and very refreshing, not too sweet or too dry.

Driving the Wine Trail of Botetourt County. The building was open. No one around but a phone number to call. No one answered.

So sorry you had a lousy experience, We are a small family run business and obviously that day, one of us dropped the ball, Worse, we missed an opportunity to meet you and show you a great time. Please come back!

A wonderful fall afternoon spent at the Vineyard, an educational wine tasting and a surprise Gator tour on one of the many hiking trails. We enjoyed a glass of wine, cheese tray and soaked up the spectacular views. Truly a unique place!

Thank you for the kind review. Please come back this spring. We have new wines and the trails look so different with some green on the trees.

I have been visiting this winery for years, and although the setting is lovely and the events wonderful fun for the entire family, the wine is not good. When events have food trucks, the food is great!More
