Embracing traditional methods in our on-site winery, we meticulously cultivate grapes across our three Madison County vineyard sites. This commitment to authenticity, reminiscent of the early days of Virginia’s wine industry, sets us apart. We believe it’s crucial for delivering high-quality wines that truly capture the essence of our ‘place’ and provide guests with a memorable country getaway tasting experience.

Discover our exclusive collection, available for tasting and purchase solely at our welcoming tasting room. While a limited selection graces a few local restaurants during dinnertime, you won’t find us on retail shelves. For those beyond our scenic haven, nationwide shipping is also available—bringing the authentic taste of DuCard to your doorstep.
