Cab Franc Vertical Tasting

Saturday, January 14, 2 PM: We'll be pouring vintages from our library - 2009 to present - tasting and talking about the effects of that season's weather, vineyard practices and winemaking techinques on the finished wine. This is a really fun event that we do only about once a year. Nibbles accompany the tasting and the small remaining stock of these wines will be available for sale. Limited seating, advance reservations required using this form. $39 per person (Wine Club member discount applies).

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.
