Hi Dee- thanks so much for your kind words! Yes we love our wines too-lol! Glad you enjoy them and can visit us often. A beautiful place to enjoy a glass (or bottle) of that Viognier for sure!

Stopped by while staying in the area. It was a Wednesday afternoon and we were the only people tasting. Tom was wonderful and we chatted about local wine. I left with 2 bottles. Looking to my return visit to purchase some bottles on Norton.

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 favorite.

DuCard is probably one of the smaller vineyards around but that doesn't mean that it isn't worth visiting. We had been visiting many of the vineyards on the Monticello trail and now we are branching out to other nearby areas. The first thing you notice...More

Gorgeous patio along side a babbling brook with mountain views complete with fluffy clouds and soaring hawks in the distance. Bring a picnic lunch and enjoy a great glass of wine for a perfect get away.
