DuCard has a beautiful tasting room, as do many Virginia wineries. Personally, I prefer their wines as they are more full bodied and complex than pretty much any others. The hostess was very nice and we had the place to ourselves since we arrived at...More

This is a great stop while on a winery tour in VA! We loved the wines - especially the Rose - and if you're an electric car driver you'll appreciate the car charging stations!
