We were exited to visit Barren Ridge because we had visited so many wineries in the area that we enjoyed. The drive up to the vineyard and the winery were gorgeous. Unfortunately, all went South when we started tasting. First, my wife and I have never had smaller pours at a winery and we've been to more than most. I'm not exaggerating by saying the pour would not have filled a thimble. My wife and I just looked at each other and thought it has to get better from here. It didn't. We were not impressed with any of their wines and we have a full appreciation for all varietals. Though to be fair, the pours were so small we couldn't truly evaluate their wines. Maybe there is a reasoning for that? On our last pour, a different woman took over and we thought for sure we could get a favorable pour. That didn't happen. It's just the culture of that winery. The tastings are $8 each. What a rip. We will gladly pay that for a favorable experience but this winery didn't offer it. It's unfortunate because the grounds her are beautiful. Don't bother going here. It is a waste of time. All other wineries do a nicer job.
