  • $5 tasting charge! Wines are so bad you wouldn't buy after tasting, so they have to charge. I decided to try a wine anyway, thought I was in need of something to go with dinner, but there was nothing to my taste. Lesson learned, any winery that charges for tasting will not get my custom. Beautiful building, great picnic area and friendly service.
  • We have visited Purple Hen many times and are impressed with the quality of the wines, the warm ambiance and hospitality. Such a beautiful place at any time of the year - we'll be back!
