DuCard Vineyards

40 Gibson Hollow Ln, Etlan  |  |  540-923-4206

Visit our gorgeous vineyard and winery bordering the eastern slope of Shenandoah National Park. We offer estate-grown wines with a friendly, knowledgeable staff providing a memorable and incomparable tasting experience. Our peaceful setting is a psychological and wine-ological getaway from the outside world.

Our mountainside setting borders the Shenandoah National Park and its 300 thousand acres of social distancing out our back door. Perhaps take a scenic hike and then join us for a flight or bottle of wine and a gourmet food platter to de-stress and renew. Or skip the hike and just come straight to DuCard.


Our grounds and tasting room are open seven days a week. We have spacious back lawns and a stream-side deck, and ample seating in our Shenandoah Room and our brand new indoor-outdoor Pavilion space, all overlooking the mountains. In wintertime Solo stoves and blankets are available – at no charge.

We offer seated wine tasting flights of our award-winning small quantity, estate-grown wines, in Riedel crystal glasses, served at your table by our knowledgeable and friendly staff. Our full menu of current releases and selected Library wines is also available. We offer a wide range of special events throughout the year – vertical tastings, wine brunches and dinners, chocolate and wine pairing, and oyster festivals, plus live music every Saturday year round and most Fridays and Sundays in season. 

In 2022 we won Virginia's inaugural Norton Cup Challenge. We are one of only a handful of Virginia wineries to have been awarded Governor’s Cup gold medals for red, white and dessert wines over the past few years. We are an 'authentic' operation, growing our own grapes with twenty acres of vines on three sites, and making all our own wine, on site - 'the real deal.'
