My girlfriends and I planned a winery tour with a local limo service for today. I requested only 3 wineries for various reasons .... Vintage Ridge, Delaplane Cellars, and Barrel Oak. Vintage Ridge was welcoming, lovely wine, delicious pairings and great service. Delaplane Cellars was none of the above. The owner and manager wouldn't even let us enter their winery. They were rude!!!!! Why?? because we were being responsible and arriving in a limo? They wouldn't even suggest a location for our driver to park and wait while six ladies continued to enjoy their afternoon. They went as far as calling the police, as our driver was turning around to exit!!! The owners standing in our limo drivers way as he's attempting the leave. We left there insulted, embarrassed and angry to be treated so rudely. The owner and manager could have handled the situation more professionsally. We gave them opportunity to do so and they chose not to. We were dumbfounded!! We moved on, as they left us no choice ..... too many wineries to see, who would appreciate our company and our business. Thank you Barrel Oak for your warm and friendly welcome. We enjoyed our afternoon with you. I highly recommend Vintage Ridge and Barrel Oak. They are class acts!! DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME GOING TO DELAPLANE CELLARS!!!!!
