DuCard Vineyard - 40 Gibson Hollow Ln., Etlan, VA 22719

A message from Scott and the whole DuCard Team   Missing the views on your drive out to DuCard? We miss seeing YOU as well!

We sent you a short video two weeks ago, indicating that we would figure out how to continue operating and serving you during this ongoing crisis.   Seems more like 2 months ago. And the situation has changed about four times over this period. 

We do now have several ways for you to continue to get DuCard wines – and hopefully allow us to continue to keep the lights on, the grapes tended and the wines flowing.      Curbside / to go:  The attached local radio ad highlights what all of you know already: DuCard is a respite in a modern sea of uncertainty and stress. I am writing this now from our tasting room, looking out over mountains and streams and vines – a whole lot of quiet. Unfortunately we are not allowed to have you consume wine on the property currently, but we have “office hours” from 3-6 daily for you to pick up some DuCard wine. So if you need a country drive to our rural area, to refresh your body and soul, then come on out and we’ll pack up some wine for you “to go.” 

FREE shipping (or personal local delivery if you are nearby):  With 6 bottles we will pay the freight to get you some wine. Actually with a case, too (come on, it just doesn’t go that far these days – you also get 10% off). Our current availability can be found HERE – with listings and on-line ordering on the Current Releases page.         Virtual tasting on Facebook Live, Wednesday, April 22 @ 7 PM:  We’re upping our game here in order to stay in virtual touch with all our friends and family by doing our first ever Virtual Tasting on Facebook Live on Wed. April 22nd at 7pm! We invite you all to order the tasting bundle and open and enjoy these wines along with our winemaker Julien Durantie and owner Scott Elliff. Our tasting bundle will consist of some great wines to enjoy this springtime: 2018 Chardonnay, 2017 Cuvée, and NEW 2019 Rosé. This bundle is offered up at a 19% discount (get it?) and Free Shipping/local Delivery! Order now to ensure timely delivery. Details coming out shortly so keep your eyes open and join us for some great wine tasting together. Hey- we miss seeing you all in the Tasting Room so this is the next best thing! 

Other special offers: We will continue sending emails to you – with fun videos we have come across, suggested wine pairing ideas and some special offers that we’ll be cooking up.  

We know everybody needs their wine more than ever right now. Hopefully a few bottles of DuCard will help evoke a great respite for us all- the beautiful scenery, great service and special vibe that we have – and we will continue to have after this subsides.  

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT.    Scott Elliff  Owner, DuCard Vineyards   Etlan (Madison County), Virginia  www.ducardvineyards.com
