    Just attended my niece's wedding here - a beautiful place. The setting by the water was breathtaking, to say the least. Reception was in a barn, which at first sounds a little 'strange', but it was gr...  more »

    We tasted some decent wines last Summer in a relaxed atmosphere. Only one red 'wine', which was accidentally mixed with grape juice by the bottling company, was not to our taste. We bought a few bottles of white and even went back the next day to try out a different red wine, which we liked. We purchased two of these, too - so we thought... They turned out to contain this weird grape juice blend... We saved these bottles for some family gatherings under proper storage conditions for about 6-7 months. To our shock, all bottles were maderized. They still had a slight fizz, indicating that they still were not completely fermented. This indicates that all bottles were heat-damaged, and not oxidized due to a failing cork. The whites had lots of wine stone, meaning that the wine was not stabilized properly before bottling. We suspect that Slack stores their bottles without any temperature control in their small tasting shed/store, which heats up a lot during the Summer. We arrived earlier than the owner for our tasting appointment, and we didn't notice that any AC was running. One image in a different review shows all those bottles on shelves. We are deeply disappointed to have wasted close to $150 on their wines. We can only advise against buying bottles at their store. We are also still baffled how this grape juice blend got into these mislabeled bottles...

    Wonderful anniversary with my husband and dog. We loved the laid back atmosphere and the scenery is to die for. We can't wait to go again!

    Great winery with beautiful views. Rocking chairs outside which makes for a great place to bring some snacks and enjoy their wonderful selection of wines.

    My husband and I went down this past Sunday. We had tasted their wines before at the Sotterley Wine Fest the fall prior. We liked them then. Going to the winery itself was even better. We met almost the entire family. They were all well informed on all their wines, as they should be. We don't go for Blushes usually as they are too sweet, but their Slacker wine was just awesome. Definitely a pleasant surprise. We think their Cab Franc is our favorite. The Lady of the house told us that soon they willl also be doing beer!! Yay!! The venue itself is absolutely gorgeous, with water that wraps around the entire property. Very peaceful. We hope to stay for a night or two next time. Very relaxing environment to sit and open up a bottle/ bottles of wine and enjoy the scenery. I would recommend this to people who just want to get away for a spell and enjoy wine and life with a great view.
