Barrel Room Food & Wine Program

Join us for an elegant, special, seated tasting in our winery barrel room, including gourmet foods paired with the wines. This is a unique event that goes beyond the 'standard' at-the-bar tasting, and is great for a special occasion, to bring along your house guests - or just to treat yourself. Here's a recent blog post on the event. Limited seating and advance reservations required. For more details and reservations click here.

New Shenandoah wine

We are excited to release Shenandoah, a special new, limited edition DuCard wine. DuCard will donate $1 of every bottle sale to the Shenandoah National Park Trust, and has provided specialy boxed and signed bottles of the wine to the Trust in support of its fundraising activities and the wide range of nonprofit programs and activities they offer.The label depicts White Oak Canyon and Falls, just around the corner from DuCard, an iconic image for which we have obtained the exclusive rights. It just so happens that the Shenandoah wine is a nice refresher on the DuCard patio after a hike.

NEW: Nationwide Shipping

We love having you drink our wines out in our backyard, above, but now you can have them shipped to you for drinking in your own backyard. Our new partnership with VinoShipper handles the mind-numbing state-by-state complexities (some states still not allowed though), so you can just go to their site and order (here). Pow. So ... want more of your favorites before they sell out? Bam. Want to share DuCard with friends for birthdays, anniversaries and more? Easy. And: you can now join our great Wine Club too, previously only open to Virginia residents (details here). Note: current members contact us directly for shipping, to ensure your discount.
