  • I loved the ride to get there, however I love taking the back roads. Everyone was so nice even the very full behaved dog. I only tasted wines that were made by the grapes grown on the property. I...  more »
  • Beautiful vineyard and tasting room. We’ve gone several times and have always had a wonderful time. The Franc is very good. Overall, you definitely know you are drinking a Perigeaux wine, very distinctive flavor to most.
  • I seldom write reviews, but felt compelled to here. We drove down from Pasadena, MD having never been to this vineyard. We've frequented several vineyards from both coasts and several within Maryland itself. While not experts, we do know quite a bit about wine. This wine was by far, the worst we've tasted from a local vineyard! We did a tasting and most had a very weird/odd taste (as indicated by others). The chardonnay was almost orange in color in lieu of the yellow/clear. When questioned, we were told they fermented a batch of red and did not correctly rinse the vat before running the chardonnay, hence the off color. While we understand you do not wish to waste in business, this was not the way to entice people to visit. This batch should have been disposed of. While there, we watched an entire party of 6 leave their wine glasses 3/4 full on the table and walk away. They also had a problem with the wines. I would suggest the owner reconsider the pressing process of his wine and/or the employment of his master vintner. They do not know how to make wine at all. In addition, the wine price structure for a local vineyard was way off the mark. We were charged $38 for the chardonnay. Most local vineyards (especially those trying to be recognized) charge between $20-$25 (Boordy, Fiore, Dejon). This is not a bottle of Dom Perignon for goodness sake! As there were very few people who stayed, we can only assume that had the wine been better and less pricey, they'd draw in more people wanting to stay. I'm still giving them 2 stars as the grounds and seating arrangements were wonderful! The music was also well performed and the young lady in the wine shop was extremely courteous and knowledgeable. Please consider changing your wine structure and I'm sure you'll see an increase in patronage.
