Parlez-vous francais? Our friends at Alliance Francaise wrote a nice article - in French of course - about DuCard and our French winegrower/winemaker Julien. Have a look at it here.
DuCard Signature Viognier goes toe to toe with top French producer in Judgement of Virginia blind tasting. Details (and special offer to share in the fun) here.
It means a lot ot have folks write about us on Trip Advisor and Yelp and elsewhere - we don't ever know they are doing it. So all the more gratifying that we repeatedly get top marks from everyone. Thanks. Come visit and form your own opinion.
Local wine critic Richard Leahy has named our Signature Viognier his favorite from a blind tasting for Virginia Wine Lover magazine. Hooray! Review.
See www.projectsunlight.net for a great first person write up on harvesting grapes at DuCard.
Aw shucks: our Cville friend and neighbor waxes eloquent about us in his blog.

FLASH: CUSTOMER APPRECIATION DAY RESCHEDULED TO SATURDAY, DECEMBER 14 DUE TO EXPECTED WEATHER. We still plan to be open this weekend, so come on out - but it might get ugly. Call first on Sunday afternoon if it gets bad just to make sure we're there.
Harvests are now complete and wine is fermenting along happily - leaf color is starting to come on strong and it's a great time to come out to the country and visit. We will be having events most every weekend - see calendar
Events, Parties and All.
We have a pretty good
time at DuCard.
