  • Love this place. Out third visit here. We were trying to try new places but those didn’t work out. We ended up not doing tasting menu. Purchased a glass of wine for each of us and some Boursin and cra...  more »
  • We visited Pearmund while on vacation in Virginia. We tried five wineries in the area and this one was my favorite by far. I believe they have the best wine in the region. The estate is gorgeous. You ...  more »
  • I agree with the individual who provided the review about rudeness. Rudeness in employees is learned behavior from top management. The owner is rude and absolutely chews out his employees in front of ...  more »

  • 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.
  • This is my favorite winery in the area. The wines are delicious, the scenery is gorgeous, and the people are really friendly. It's the perfect place to come relax and enjoy some great wine.
  • What a delightful day out in the vineyards. We went to the winery for a drop, had a fabulous time chatting to the local and a few guests. Owner , Chris and his partner , sat and chatted for a bit while Tug the labrador enjoyed a scratch behingd the ears. Great wine ( tennant especailly) and the autumn sun created a wonderful day out. Will be back b4 the winter... thnks.
  • 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.
  • 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.
