My friends and I recently spent a long weekend in the Brandywine Valley and wanted to check out some wineries. This one happened to be near our Airbnb so we decided to give it a go, and we are very glad we did. The overall...More

The Italian vintners have managed to coax a nice variety of wines from their small, 7.5 acre parcel. There are different soils even in this small area. The white wines are purposely produced to have the same kind of depth as the reds, which is...More

Even though this was the most expensive wine tasting we did on the brandy wine trail, it also offered the most flavors. They paired a cheese and chocolate with each wine you tasted. This was the one winery of the day where every wine I...More

This winery is well established and understands the growing process to produce drinking wines that are versatile, especially wines that can be paired with a variety of foods. The tastings are great with long pours and a good discussion about the grape production, harvest, barreling,...More

Went to three other wineries in the Brandywine area and this was by far the best. Even though the price is $20 , your wine is paired with cheeses, breads, and chocolate. Well worth the price. Loved the Mahogany red wine. The cheeses are local...More

Great stop when touring the Brandywine Valley. Don't get drawn in by the more advertised vineyards in this area. This is good! and better then most local wines. And the pairing with local cheeses and chocolates is a nice touch.
