J. Maki Winery (written Jan 04, 2012)
Wine: 1 stars Winery: 1 stars Ambiance: 1 stars
I happen to agree with every single negative comment made about J. Maki winery. My girlfriend and I set out for a PA wine trail, and this happened to be our first stop. What a terrible way to start off the trip, however we were glad to get it over with as we ended up enjoying every other winery we attended. This place made a mockery out of wineries in general. We were instantly placed with an ultimatum of either buying a bottle of their sub-par wine, or paying a rediculous $30 tasting fee per person. We decided to stay, like idiots, and try it out anyway. We split a tasting so it wouldn't cost us $60! Bad idea too. The girl at the counter was so afraid to pour any liquid into our glass that she would literally shake as she poured. We could barely see what was in the glass, let alone taste it. I remember thinking, "I hope all PA wineries aren't like this". Nope, just this one. The girl was semi-nice, yet snobby and quite dry. I've read a lot about this jerk owner they have, however we didn't see him there...probably better off. The "wine buyer's only" sign as you drive up is a joke to begin with, and then you don't only leave feeling robbed, but you don't even get the experience you intended on in the first place. It was a very cold experience, so cold that we could not wait to get home to write a negative review. We were extremely happy to see many negative reviews written already. Also, from what we learned on the remainder of our trip, they seem to be getting a worse reputation as time goes on. Getting back to the tasting, it was the cheapest one we have ever attended, however the most expensive! She poured about a quarter of an ounce in the glass for us to share! It was totally rediculous. By the end, feeling trapped and screwed, we bought a bottle from them just to not have to pay the $30 tasting fee. Honestly, for all we know the wine may taste like crap when we open it because the tasting did nothing for us. I can probably go on all night about how terrible they were, but please take this review and trust in it, and do not ever attend this winery, unless of course you want to waste your time and get robbed. It's an absolute joke that they call themselves a business. We have been to wineries all over the country and this one was by far the worst. Wine lovers beware...this place sucks. Do yourselves a favor and drive right by it.
