We had a very knowledgeable tour guide, though the tour was a bit long. Nice wine tasting at the end allowed for sampling of a lot of different wines.

Wonderful place, and the wines are fabulous! My absolute favorite is the Holiday Wine, which is sold during the Thanksgiving / Christmas holidays. Either cold or warm, it's just a fantastic wine!!!!

I would like to start this review off with I visited this place on a rainy Monday and a lot of my complaints and issues(service, location of tasting room, bathrooms, etc) were, I am hoping, because of that. It’s a beautiful winery; a little hard...More

Beautiful winery, the wine tasting was fun and informational, the wine was so good & reasonably priced that we bought as much as we could fit in our car, and the cozy charming little restaurant was awesome.

I'm a little late to the game, but if you are interested in a bed and breakfast, I LOVE the Dominion House B&B. It's about a 10 minute drive away. I go every year!
