The wine selection for a winery was lacking especially the flight selection (only 1 flight of 3 wines to choose from). To add only 1 of those was palatable or remotely matched the charcuterie board. Beautiful scenery, with great service, just lacks on the actual "winery" experience. I'd suggest bringing in a culinary team that can match the menu to the selection of wine and broaden the selection of wines.

Outdoor seating was very nice, the wine was great. Our server was excellent - attentive, very sweet, we really liked her. We got good recommendations from the bartender about what wine to get. Champagne (or whatever sparkling wine we got) was delicious. Overall a very nice place to spend a few hours.

Booked a reservation and put in the notes that we would be there for Flights & Bites and that we don’t drink Chardonnay, so we’d like for that flight to be swapped out for another one. We got there and the waiter rudely said ‘That’s only Mon-Thurs.’ Considering I made the reservation a week ahead of time, it would have been nice if someone would have reached out to tell us that beforehand- they obviously don’t read the notes. We asked if we could sit in the new cabanas outside but the host said no because they were reserved and had a minimum spend. (The entire time we were there not one of the 4 cabanas was occupied.) It would have been excellent customer service to say hey, someone’s coming in 2 hours so as long as you’re out before then, go ahead. We would have posted on social media and it’s not like they were being used anyway.

We ended up staying anyway and ordered 2 glasses, but wanted to taste them first since we hadn’t had them before. The waiter again gave some attitude but then said he would do it ‘since it was slow.’ We tried them and couldn’t stand either one, so we ordered 2 different glasses and an appetizer. His demeanor was off putting throughout the whole time, and we would have stayed but he made it uncomfortable. We noticed a new place opened up nearby and had Happy Hour starting, so we chose to leave and take our business there instead. My advice to District Winery is to have better customer service and be more accommodating. The wine is pretty bad overall, but we go because it’s easier to get to than the actual VA wineries that are hours away. But if the wine isn’t great, you need a great experience to make up for that, which we didn’t get.

I wasn't particularly impressed with their food options. They had nice wine options but the list wasn't as long as I expected. The outside seating was lovely and so was the host staff but their menu was nothing to write home about. If you are just looking for wine this is the place for you, but if you want wine and a decent meal too, I would go elsewhere.

A great meal and service marred by just one thing. We arrived early for our 4pm reservation, saw the place was empty and asked if we could be sat early. The person behind the desk, who we think was a manager, said they were fully booked and we would have to wait. I went outside and used the Opentable app to book the 3.15 pm slot. I noted that the 3.15 to 4.30pm slots were all available, We then walked straight back in and were sat down immediately, the manager was no longer at the desk. Why lie to patrons?

The food was great, our server was fantastic but we very nearly walked away to another nearby restaurant due to this person's inflexibility and lies.

Loved my experience at District Winery on the sunny Saturday this past weekend. The tables on the outdoor patio were spaced well for COVID protocols, which was hugely important to me. The servers were very attentive but didn't make us feel rushed. We ordered a good chunk of the menu and split the small plates, and the food was very good. My friends also ordered the wine punch / sangria type drink and were big fans. The water views were also a nice bonus for an already great experience.
