  • This winery is beautifully situated in valley which sadly means there is no cell service. We appeared to be the first tasters of the day and our server didn't seem overly pleased to have someone there...  more »

  • We came to DuCard on a rainy day and ended up with the tasting bar all to ourselves! It was a perfect day to be there and the wine was great! Out of the 6 vineyards we visited, this was my husband's f...  more »

  • Very nice tasting room with a great view of the mountains that inspire their logo. They had solar panels on their roof, and a Tesla and other electric car charging stations. Very nice to see a vineyard embrace the green. We tasted three whites, a rose, and two reds. The reds consisted of a Cabernet Franc and a Petit Verdot. We finished our visit with a glass of wine on their outside deck placed next to the creek and vineyard which was an excellent place to enjoy a glass of wine.
  • The views here are beautiful! The wine here is the best of the three wineries we visited in the area. A great recommendation from Eric at Walden Hall!
  • We have now visited at least 75 wineries throughout Virginia and this is in our top ten. Julien the winemaker from Bordeaux, France is simply a wonderful, knowledgable, personable guy and the owner is super friendly. The wines are superb and the landscape is breathtaking.
  • My boyfriend and I stopped by here a few weeks ago on our way back from the White Oak Canyon hiking trail because Erik at Walden Hall said this was a "must visit" winery. We were a bit skeptical since we had not heard of Ducard before and did not come up this way the last time we were in the area. But wow, we had such a great time. We were expecting to just do a tasting then continue on to a few more wineries, but the beauty of the landscape and the excellent tasting wines would not let us leave! We ended up staying for most of the day! It was such a down to earth and relaxing experience. We picked up a few bottles to share with the family. We will be back in the fall!
  • Beautiful view tucked in between the mountain ridges. On a warm summer day I can say that I throughly enjoyed the whites being served, they were bright but still light enough on the palette where it was refreshing. I will say however that I was hoping to leave with a red but did not find one that I enjoyed enough. I was able to bring in my own picnic which was enjoyed out on their stone patio with a bottle of their 2nd Corps 2015, which was substituting the Shenandoah white for a brief reveal. With just a hint of sweetness balanced out by the citrus notes this is a white that can be enjoyed with anything from a charcuterie player to a beautiful seafood dinner. Worth a visit and next time I will spend more time on the hiking trails.
