Tasting Room

We believe your visit to DuCard should be an enjoyable and memorable experience — in a great location. So we have designed our operation to highlight the local scenery and provide an environment of relaxtion, natural beauty, fresh air, fun, peace that, accompanied by our DuCard wines provides a relief from the stresses of modern life and a renewal of your personal well-being.

The tasting room where you order flights, bottles and food features a cathedral ceiling window wall looking straight out to the mountains of Shenandoah National Park plus gorgeous flooring and bars made from local reclaimed hardwood, including 100 year old oak boards we “harvested” from barns on the property.

Our expansive shaded lawns, tented patio and our new secluded deck offer a range of comfortable seating overlook our mountain stream and vineyards.

Our facilities are all ADA accessible and family, pet and picnic friendly.

Larger Groups

DuCard can accommodate groups of up to about 20, with advance reservations.  Wines will be available for sale by the bottle only.  While we are unable to provide our full service wine flights for larger groups, we will still have a knowledgeable DuCard staff member serve your group, answer questions and tell stories about DuCard and, depending on season and availability, lead a walking tour of the vineyard or winery
