    My husband and I have visited numerous Virginia wineries in the 5 years we lived here and always maintain memberships at a couple. We visit a winery an average of twice per month. Since my sister was in town, we decided to try a new winery together. We chose Pearmund because of the great reviews. First off, the pizza vendor was leaving early as we arrived; that was disappointing but we didn't let it bother us. We just got some crackers, meat, and cheese to have some sustenance before our wine tastings and began our visit in good spirits. Soon after the snack, we went to the tasting bar to begin tastings. We decided to start with the regular tasting, then move to the reserve tasting--since the reserve tasting featured all reds. Toward the end of our tasting, at 5:24pm, our wine educator, Nicole, noticed the gentleman who was doing the reserve tastings walking around and let him know that we were headed back there shortly. He replied that the manager, Deb, had just told him that they were done. Mind you, it is not even 5:30pm and the winery closes at 6pm. He asked Deb if we could come back there to do our tasting and she shook her head and gestured with her hands emphatically, "No way!" right there in front of us. Never in all our winery visits, have we been treated so rudely; it ruined the rest of the visit. To add insult to injury, we looked over and saw that there was about 5 people sitting at a table in the reserve area enjoying themselves. We will not bother to return and my sister was completely disgusted and does not wish to return on her subsequent trips. We weren't breaking any rules, we weren't unruly or inebriated... We counted 3 dogs in the tasting room--including the reserve room--though the website says no dogs allowed. Yet we weren't allowed to do a tasting before last call? We were going to purchase bottles to take home, plus purchase 3 reserve tastings--not to mention repeat visits with guests and recommendations. I certainly wouldn't want someone like Deb managing my business, as she seemed to care more about shutting down than encouraging repeat business and making sure that the customer had a good experience within the winery rules and expectations. She gave no explanation or apology. In fact, the only time she spoke to us was to ask if it was our (wrapped) food that remained on the table where we had been sitting. We replied yes and she said that she just wanted to check before she threw it away. The place was not crowded; she had to have seen us sitting there. The one bright spot about our 40 minute drive out to Pearmund was our wine educator, Nicole. She was intimately acquainted with the wines and seemed to genuinely enjoy her job and interacting with people. In the end, it doesn't matter how good the wines were (the ones we tasted were just okay to pretty good...the one reserve we tasted was very good). If I'm not made to feel welcome, then you've not given me any reason to return and spend money in your establishment.

    They forgot to put down our reservation, but they last-minute still took care of us - a group of 7. Great facilities. And we had an AMAZING time talking with the incredibly friendly and knowledgeable pourers Dawn and Emily.

    A very relaxing atmosphere. Came here after a morning of hiking and just wanted to chill. The staff were welcoming and had the right balance between telling you about the wines and leaving you alone to drink. $10 for 10 tastings

    We frequently visit wineries and vineyards in central Virginia/Charlottesville and decided to take a few days to wine taste in northern Virginia. We visited seven wineries during the trip and Pearmund was by far our favorite. The driveway leading to the tasting room is a lovely little trip around the vines. We were approached on the front porch by a sweet, handsome dog that seemed to say, "Welcome". As soon as we walked through the front door, we were greeted warmly by the staff who were all very notably inviting. All of the staff members we interacted with were personable and knowledgeable about the wines. The wines were excellent. We didn't taste anything that we didn't like. I loved that they offer food pairing ideas for the wines with items that they actually have available for sale. We signed up for the wine club and will definitely make a point to visit the tasting room a couple of times a year.

    This winery menu changes like most seasonally or when they run out. However, expect more or less 10 wines equal reds or whites and dessert. On this recent occasion they offered a special "Black Ops" wine which is an unknown blend to all the employees. Expect to pay $10 per person or you can share a tasting with one other for the same $10. Parking is very good I have almost never had an issue parking (all gravel). I also drive an all electric vehicle which they conveniently provide a Tesla 40amp charger (see destination charging on your car map) or a standard charger for everyone else which uses EVgo (this is new since last year). Frequently they have a pizza shop tow an oven to the lot to sell to customers. Outside you will find a very nice patio which ample seating. There is also seating farther out towards the barn and creek. They also provide cornhole. Wines themselves I found are all quite good and highly rated. The tasting room has enough space for about 30 at one time as well as extra seating in their barrel storage room. The storage room is kept very cool and a great place to sit in the summer. Overall I frequently stop here as a last stop for the day to both charge my car and grab some delicious wines. Lastly if you are a Va Go pass member (2016) you can get your tasting complimentary if you buy a bottle. Though no bottle as of this review was under $25.
