We are now offering seated wine flights and gourmet cheese, charcuterie and dessert (OMG) platters. Flights will include current releases, premium selections and sold out older vintages from our Library. Seated, table service, relaxed atmosphere, with no reservations. Same great DuCard service, quality and congeniality; same great views. A nice alternative to 'standard tastings at the bar.' A nice review from the Cville Guide magazine is here. Current menu is here. And a Facebook photo album is here. Upcoming dates August: 4th, 11th, 19th, 25th and 26th

The food and wine pairings program, typically held behind the scenes in our barrel room, will still be available for groups, on an advance reservation basis. Here's a recent blog post on that program, with more details and reservations available here.

Music on the Patio

Our tradition of great music on the patio and by the fireside continues at DuCard, most Saturdays throughout the year - singer-songwriters, local guitarists and duos, crooners, (light) rockers and more. Perfect for a gorgeous afternoon. No cover, Dog friendly. See Calendar page for more details. INCLUDING Special Sunday events: solar power 'seminar,' painting classes, special interest talks, and more


Shenandoah 2017: last call !

We're now pouring the last few cases of our fabulous Shenandoah wine: Get it before it's gone ! The label is a 1930's style depiction of White Oak Canyon Falls, just down the road, and the wine is a semi-sweet summer refresher. DuCard makes a contribution to the Shenandoah National Park Trust for every bottle sold, helping the Trust continue its terrific work. Come on out maybe after (not before, probably) a hike in the Park.


Oyster Festival at DuCard !!

Saturday, September 22, 12 - 6PM Our Fall Oyster Fest is back! Nomini Bay Oyster Ranch (http://nboysters.com/about-us/) oywters - raw, steamed, grilled, and grilled with toppings - and Rappahannock River Oyster Company's fresh grilled crab cakes. Kat and the Travelers playing on the patio and beautiful mountain and vineyard views all day long. Just $10 in advance and $15 at the gate (food and wine not included). Advance tickets here.


Green Winery of the Year

We're proud to announce that DuCard has been named a Green Travel Star Award winner, as the green winery of the year, for our environmental stewardship and sustainability practices. This includes our new TESLA charging station (also for other electric cars). Available to customers at no "charge" so drive on out to see us.

NEW: Nationwide Shipping

We love having you drink our wines out in our backyard, above, but now you can have them shipped to you for drinking in your own backyard. Our new partnership with VinoShipper handles the mind-numbing state-by-state complexities (some states still not allowed though), so you can just go to their site and order (here). Pow. So ... want more of your favorites before they sell out? Bam. Want to share DuCard with friends for birthdays, anniversaries and more? Easy. And: you can now join our great Wine Club too, previously only open to Virginia residents (details here). Note: current members contact us directly for shipping, to ensure your discount.
