Wine: 3 stars Winery: 3 stars Ambiance: 3 starsMay 27, 2018

Favorite Wine: Amarone (Vox label)

24 dry wines, 16 sweet wines, 2 dessert wines and 2 cooking wines (Devil’s Potion jalapenos, Dracula’s Demise garlic). As it turns out, not a single vine can be found at this location and ALL of their grapes/juices are ‘imported from wherever’ (the vintner’s words). When I asked where the Viognier originated from, he did not have a clue. Are you starting to suspect this winery? Admittedly, it was a curiosity that they produced wine examples from such grapes as Pinot Blanc, Chilean Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Viogneir, Gewurztraminer, Johannesberg Riesling, Gamay grapes, Pinot Noir, Sicily’s Nero D’Avola, Sangiovese, Nebbiolo, a Chateauneuf-du-Pape blend of Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre & Cinsault (with a touch of oak and elderberries), Montepulciano, Argentinian Malbec, old vine Zinfandel, an Italian Stud which they say gets confused with liquid Viagra, a Cab Sauv, Carmenere and the unique taste of an Italian Amarone. I’m not going to go through the list of sweet grapes used on page two of their menu. So why go here? 1) ~ they are semi-close to the Blue Ridge Parkway 2) ~ you need wine making supplies. 3) ~ curiosity got the best of you. In spite of an amazing diverse offering, we were not able to find wines here with typical expected character. Their cutely named labels do not indicate what wines are in the bottle (better mark before leaving the winery).

Favorite Wine: All the sweet, fruit flavored ones!

June 09-Very generous tasting - they do not charge for it if you buy wine. We liked almost every wine we tried! It was rather bizarre however that we wanted to purchase a gift certificate/card to give to friends and they insisted that we not do it because we didn't know what wine our friends would want to purchase with it ??? They advertise gift cards on their website (which is an EXCELLENT, very informative website!)

I had the pleasure of meeting the owners Tom & Nancy Burgess several years ago. This winery sits on the edge of a 200 acre christmas tree farm. A full Bed & Breakfast completes this little slice of heaven located off the Blueridge Parkway. Tom is your Tour guide for this quaint little winery. They offer a great stay & make your own wine package.
