Barrel Room Food & Wine Program: NEW SESSION 2/18

Join us for an elegant, special, seated tasting in our winery barrel room, including gourmet foods paired with the wines.

Here's a recent blog post on the event. Limited seating and advance reservations required. For more details and reservations click here. New winter-spring dates will be posted soon

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.
