Gorgeous boutique vineyard and winery at the edge of the Shenandoah National Park, named Virginia's Greenest Winery for environmental stewardship practices, with great wines and personal service in a relaxing location.

Gorgeous patio along side a babbling brook with mountain views complete with fluffy clouds and soaring hawks in the distance. Bring a picnic lunch and enjoy a great glass of wine for a perfect get away.

Thanks for visiting. Wine is about personal taste for sure, and there's no right or wrong on it. For reference and others reading this: you mention a lack of dry wines, but our current tasting includes two dry white wines and three dry red wines,...More

by far my favorite vineyard/winery: non pretentious, relaxed and inclusive atmosphere, encouragement to bring your own munchies (though they have a few options for purchase on-site) and tasty wines. have visited over the years and in multiple seasons, always very pleased

Went to DuCard this weekend with my wife on our way up from Charlottesville to dinner at the Inn at Little Washington. Knowing the over-the-top experience waiting us that evening, we wanted to hit a vineyard that was a bit more comfortable and relaxing. DuCard...More

My husband and I stumbled upon this vineyard by accident, and we are so glad we did. We had moved to Virginia in September 2014 from the Bay area, and therefore were used to fabulous wines. At first, we were disappointed with Virginia wines, finding...More
