  • I like VA wine, I really do, but I think a $50+ bottle of wine should be exceptional, not just good but exceptional. These are good solid wines that will get better with age and, yes the experience is...  read more »
  • Stopped at Michael Shaps in July 2016. The tasting room is not elaborate, but has a great history (old signs, metal siding from local historic buildings). Cassandra told us all about the construction....  read more »
  • Others are correct that the tasting room is small and unimpressive. Also, the elderly gentleman employee who was pouring was a real talker. In fact, he talked so much that my husband had to make a qui...  read more »
  • Most unique and elegant wines in the entire state. The use of non-conventional methods really earns non-conventional results. Beautiful wines and a beautiful vineyard that's so quiet you can hear the fermentation.
  • The red wine is AMAZING. Hidden back in the woods, but well worth the adventure! You can find their wine in local stores.
  • Wine was great , the service beware! Due to size of the tasting party, our server tried to up charge the tasting cost to $15 ea from the printed $10 ea per tasting. Totally unprofessional attitude!
  • Fun! A working wineshop where you taste in the barrel room. The wines are good, plus its a fun time to work with the actual winemakers. Very laid back , generous pours, we always buy a few bottles to take back home. A great find, we were glad to have stumbled onto it.
  • All of the wineries in this area have a very "real" feel. You can see the vineyards all around at all of the wineries I like to visit. Some operations are very heavily geared toward the general public and tasting afternoons. Wineworks has not polished up the patios yet, this is very much the working winery. For me it adds to the experience. The wines are great -- the only boxed wine I allow in my fridge!
