  • Went on a Monday afternoon with three of us. Joyce gave us a wine tasting with a lot of history about Valerie Hill and the home. Everything from previous owners to possible ghosts. She definitely made...  read more »

  • This is a favorite place of ours when visiting the area. In addition to the great wine, the owners host wonderful events with live music and the place is always busy. Rich history and gorgeous venue. ...  read more »
  • Our experience at Valerie Hill Vineyard & Winery was the most disappointing of any winery my wife and I have ever visited. It took about an hour and a half of round trip travel time to get out to the winery, which is somewhat in the sticks. The old "haunted" house they are located in seems interesting and full of character. However, we found the current inhabitants to be less than hospitable. Upon entering the winery about ten minutes prior to closing, the owner (or manager) glared at us without a greeting or even a simple smile. When I said hello and inquired about a wine tasting she stated that she couldn't serve us any wine because she had just put the wine pumps away, despite the fact that there were several other patrons (or friends) currently drinking wine at the bar. Maybe they were drinking wine from one of those bottles that is simply opened and poured, not pumped. We were told to come back another day, which is not likely to ever happen. If you are looking for a hospitable environment with friendly and happy people, I can't recommend this place.
  • We are members and love the wine, and atmosphere. I could easily spend any given weekend here with friends, and often do. I recomend paying attention to when they have music on hand. A great local vibe.
  • I will say, my party and I enjoyed ourselves for a few hours drinking wine and eating delicious cheeses. The female staffer was a joy to be around, and very knowledgeable regarding the vineyard. However, this all came to a halt when an obnoxious lady came in with her dog. Keep in mind, there is a clearly marked sign on the main entrance stating "no dogs allowed inside". One of the employees spoke to her, and I assumed he was letting her know about the sign and her dog, but told her she had to move her car instead. This lady then had the nerve to ask us to watch her dog while she moved her car! At this time, I think we had all decided this place was not for us, and that our little day trip was pretty much done. As we left, we were trying to be polite by cleaning up after ourselves, the same lady had the audacity to ask for our opened uneaten food sitting on our tray. This is unlike any place I've been in the area, and I don't think I'll ever be returning. My advice to Valerie Hill is to not post signs with rules you don't intend to enforce. A woman with a dog dressed as a child has clearly fooled you, and chased a polite young group away ... never to return.
  • I thought it was a very nice place. Owners were friendly. Enjoyed it very much.
  • Great experience. Kudos for making the entire 1807 house the tasting room.
