  • This winery can be hit or miss with friendliness. The owners daughter was nice this year, in the past she was rather short. We had a nice tasting outside on a lovely warm day along with a cheese packa...  more »

  • The wine and the grounds here are fine. This woman who owns the place is obnoxious, rude, and quite frankly acts like she's completely unhinged. We visited with a group of over a dozen people, a few o...  more »

  • Was here for a tasting, bought the full 14 wine one, there was one person that was providing the wine for the tasting under the trees. This one person talked to everyone for 10-15 minutes per round of wine. Block off at least 3 hours if you intend on going here for a tasting. If going here just for the passport stamp, SKIP THIS ONE. The absurdly long time it takes to get a tasting at this vineyard wouldn't be quite as bad if they allowed outside food. Just sitting, waiting for Chatty Cathy to get around to pouring the next wine is painfully frustrating.
  • Greeted by an extremely rude and arrogant owner with unprovoked hostility to my entire party. Horrible experience. Mediocre wine. Not worth the stress. Take a hard pass. I hope she works out her personal issues soon or she will single handedly bring a decent business to the ground.
  • The scenery is beautiful. The wines weren't my favorite, a couple "sweet" ones, but mostly dry. The samples were very small versus the other wineries I've been to and even in the area. The prices were high for how much you get in each sample. 6 samples for $10 seems excessive.
  • Restaurant was closed but they don't allow outside food nor do they sell food. Person performing the tasting was not knowledgeable about the wines. Person was also rude and didn't want to let me taste a wine on the menu because they were "almost out and you don't look like the type of person that would buy a bottle of it". The wine was mediocre at best. Left and I'll never go back. Plenty of amazing wineries in the area to visit.
  • We have been coming to Sharpe Hill for years. We love the wines but we have been slowly getting annoyed at how they operate. First off having one barista do the entire patio and lawn area while I see five different people handle the restaurant is absurd. Also having caterpillars fall into wine glasses (which yes is an act of nature) but you then need umbrellas for each of the tables so we aren't having them go down our shirts and into our snacks. We asked for an inside tasting and they said no. We did that because our allergies were awful (there were people in the inside tasting room when we arrived so it wasn't a crazy request). To top it off if you just want to enjoy a bottle or want to do a bottle after a tasting and enjoy it onsite they are charging you to do so. That's right. They are charging you an additional $5 per bottle to drink onsite, FIVE dollars. What is that about?????????? I'm blown away by this. Needless to say we might go to a local package store and purchase from there in the future because it is beyond me what management is thinking here.
