Wine: 3 stars Winery: 4 stars Ambiance: 4 starsJul 15, 2017

Asked for tasting of two wines (no charge) and were served four. Delightful, unrushed young crew serving us this day. Some interesting production techniques at this location; as, wines are barreled and stored at slightly lower temperatures than found at other wineries; their Cabernet Franc ($25) was French oaked for 90% time and then the remaining time in new American oak; the delicious Viognier ($30) was French oaked 89% of the time and finished in stainless steel; the 2014 $32 Meritage grapes (36% Petit Verdot, 35% Merlot, 20% Cab Franc, 9% Cab Sauv) were all independently barrel oaked for 17 months and then barrel combined for 5 months and their unfiltered Petit Verdot was 30% American and 70% French oaked in 32% thinner barrels for better 'airing'(?) with 50% skins & stems and 50% grapes used. The average rating of the wines was predominantly influenced with the fact that their Petit Verdot had the unusual character that it must be sipped 'unswirled'. Unswirled and the wine had a nice deep aroma and complex taste, but swirled it lost both aroma and the taste turned flat. The best part of the visit was my wife's meeting of the English gardener who takes pride in beautifully presenting this winery horticulturally.

I liked the wine tasting room and the outside patio was great to relax on. I loved the wine....I even liked some of the white wines.

Arcady enjoys touring guests to Jefferson. They can get swamped during tourist season because they are so close to Monticello. We have found that it's a great idea to check the tasting room often in the winter during slower times as they'll often have a library wine open! Some of their Estate Reserve bordeaux blends are wonderful!

The bottles were definitely the best part. Some decent wines, but not much atmosphere. I must say that the display of the wines on the wall in front of the window was an excellent presentation.

Ok... a bit touristy for my taste.. wines were OK.. but the bottles were FAB! Had to buy a few just to have some very cool empties to stuff some candles in.
