  • My friends and I stopped by the vineyard after hiking at Sugarloaf Mountain since it's a stone's throw away. We did have someone search our larger bags on the way in and they requested we dump any wat...  more »
  • We stumbled upon this on our third year anniversary and loved it!! I have family from Europe who would approve. Amazing wine. Great service!  more »
  • I read the negative reviews on TripAdvisor and was apprehensive but decided to go anyway because it is about 15 minutes from my house. Yes, they did check my cooler and ask about my water bottles but ...  more »

  • Upon arrival the security team made us pour out our water due to them having an issue of people bringing in other beverages. To me this is an internal issue that they need to work harder on making their experience more appealing and wine prices easier to stomach. When purchasing the overpriced wine, we are only able to get one wine glass per bottle purchased. What this is telling me is that they would rather one person drink an entire bottle than share one with others. Along with the prevention of having lawn games to make the experience more enjoyable, this first experience at Sugarloaf winery has been atrocious.
  • I'd love to give a proper review of this place, unfortunately I was not made welcome. Upon ordering a glass of wine and some cheese, the staff asked for my ID. Cool, I got no problem with that. However, both my active military ID and my home state's drivers license were rejected because, I was told, vertical IDs are so easy to copy, the vineyard automatically reject them. I understand Arizona had a problem with this, as they issue vertical id's to minors and horizontal ones to adults, but I know of no such laws in Maryland. Additionally, I not only had a valid out of state id, but a valid military ID, which is determined internationally to be vertical! If that's their policy and how they want to run their business, fine. However, I'll ensure to let my coworkers know their id's are not welcome at this vineyard
  • At their great event for Mother's Day but the bathroom lines were over a 45 minute wait!!! When people drink wine they have to go to the bathroom! Great live music- Wine and food - delicious but the bathroom situation is unacceptable!
  • Uncomfortable for a winery experience. Out of the hundreds of wineries I have been to, I have never had my bags searched to get into a winery. My husband was asked to bring my water bottle back to the car. Between the policy of no family fun activities (no balls, freebies or yard games) and lack of knowledge and awkwardness of the service, I would not waste my time here again. The wines were ok, but not enough to overcome the atypical "vinyard" experience.
  • VERTICAL ID BE WARNED My husband and I drove from Stafford,VA 2 hours to come to this winery. He is 25 and has a vertical ID because in Virginia they don't care what way your ID faces and as long as its valid. We find out that they will not accept it because its vertical I dont know what peope in Maryland are doing? They let us know that it was on their website, I have NEVER heard of such a thing so why would I check the website before I drove. They missed out on a very large tab because their policy is stupid and we went to a Leesburg winery In VIRGINIA instead.
