Established in 1996, this family owned and operated winery is known for their \"150th Rose\" wine, a basic picnic wine, named after Fredericksburg's 150th anniversary, the release date being on the same day. They are also known for their wine labels that tell about the history of Fredericksburg, along with other historical facts. Join them for Wine 101, and enjoy!
I have never had such an experience in all of my life. The staff, including the owner, were VERY RUDE. They obviously received their training for wine making from Boone's Farm or better yet the Kool Aid man. I asked for a wine that was bold and full of character. The owner's response was, "We do not add tannins to our wine." As any wine enthusiast knows, tannins are a natural occurance in certain wines, and at any rate that was not my request. I and the others in my group were so poorly treated that most of us left without even trying any of the swill that this poor excuse for even a package store could attempt to offer. Our next stops on the wine trail were so enjoyable that I have been able to put my twilight zone experience behind me!
The service was incredibly rude, and the wines were terrible. I have visited wineries and vineyards extensively in California and Australia and was never treated with the condescension my group received here. There are many other friendly wineries in the area. Skip this one.
When you pull up to this place you feel they converted a closed Piggly Wiggly into this winehouse. The city of Fredericksburg should be ashamed of themselves for letting this place adorn their city name.
The people were not friendly AT ALL. The wine is horrible. Go to Becker or Woodrose.
