In the News
We're getting a lot of ink, buzz, or whatever you call it.
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.
NEWS FLASH: 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. And 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.
