  • We went to the Chaddsford Winery for a wine tasting. We were able to use a Groupon, too. A fall adult wine-tasting Halloween party was going on concurrently, which looked like lots of fun: it was sold...  more »
  • I want to start by saying that I did win this tour/tasting through a radio show. I was told this was the reserve tasting plus a private tour for 10 people. We ended up having a total of 8 people in our party. We all drove over an hour for this tour/tasting. We planned it over 3 months in advance with someone in their hospitality department. They said the first date I choose was good and would get our tour/tasting reserved for us. When we arrived at the location we all went inside and I told the girls at the front we were here for the tour/tasting that I had won. She said she would get our tour guide (I cannot remember her name) and we could start. We went out to the cottage for a private tasting of the three reserve wines. After that our guide took us on a tour of where the wine is pressed, fermented and packaged. Once we were finished she said we were done and could buy wine upstairs and enjoy some outside if we would like. We enjoyed the tour guide she was very knowledgeable and willing to answer any questions. From what the sign said when you come in out front the reserve tasting include our traditional tasting, plus three one ounce samples of our small-batch wines paired with artisanal treats. I was confused that all we had for our tasting was the three small batch wine samples. I went out to the front and asked the girls out there if the reserve tasting came with the traditional wine tasting and the said it did. I told them we only tasted the three reserve wines. They gave us tickets to do the other seven wines. It was pretty crowded in this area due to a food and wine festival that they had. From what I understood in my emails to reserve the tasting, the whole tasting/tour was supposed to be a private event. While doing the traditional tasting we asked the guys serving the wine when we would get the artisanal snacks. He said they were not doing any reserve tastings today due to the food and wine event. I told him we won the private tour and we already did the 3 reserve samples and tour he asked his manager for us. The manager came over and said that they didn’t have any of the normal snack because of the food event going on and brought us a dip and some crackers instead. At this point we all needed something to cleanse our palates to be able to continue tasting the wines. Our whole group felt that we did not get what we were told we would be getting. If I hadn’t said anything to the girls at the front we would not have even gotten to try the other 7 wines. If we had not said anything to the guys that we didn’t get the snack we would not have received those as well. The person that booked our tasting/tour should have said there was a special event that day and we would not be able to have everything that was supposed to come with the reserve tasting. This was for my Birthday and it was so disorganized that we didn’t feel very welcomed. I do understand that we won the whole tour/tasting but I don’t expect to be treated differently than someone who would purchase the tour. We did enjoy the wines and the tour guide but the event as a whole felt unwelcoming.
  • We had Chad as our sommelier. He was so personable and knew so much about the wine. He made the experience so fun! He was so knowledgable and welcoming! I will be be back because of him!!! My husband and I had a great time!!
  • Great experience. The people were very nice and the wine was great. Prices were pretty good, too
  • I went with my girlfriend on a brisk Sunday during the "Winter Wine-derland" festival in early January. We had a great afternoon enjoying the traditional wine tasting, fire pits, live music, and "Baby Blues" food truck. We ended up purchasing a bottle of the "Chaddsford Red Wine". It seems like a great place to go with either a significant other, friends, or family.
  • Small winery and worth a visit if you have some time while on the way to Longwood garden.
