    Cute winery off the beaten path in a small town. Knowledgeable and friendly staff. Variety of wines (and even vermouths!) Yummy tapas fare. Enjoyed it so much that we joined their wine club! Can’t wait for that first paella wine club dinner!

    Lovely tasting room in a beautiful little town. Great staff and energy. Wine was really fun and delicious. Vermouths and sparkler were my favorites. Really good viognier too. Pricing is high for the wine - but it is small batch so I know that makes it more expensive to make. Just be prepared. The experience is truly worth it.

    We love Case Carmen. The wines are excellent and the food even better. It’s a sweet place to meet friends and share plates. I also like that they switch up their menu periodically and let you try different charcuterie combos. I always feel welcome there.

    This is a gem of a place with fantastic wine by the glass or bottle and a small menu of nibbles to pair them with. My partner and I shared a lovely bottle of Gruner Veltliner and had cheese and meat selections, boquerones and pickled veggie skewers. Our server was very pleasant. The cozy atmosphere can’t be beat. It appears they took away the outdoor seating I enjoyed last year and only have a few tables out on the front porch.

    As a recent transplant to the area I am thrilled to have this gem in Chestertown. My husband and I were transported back to Spain for those couple of hours. Perfect spot in the alley table was friendly but also intimate. Delicious and unique takes on Latin food.

    We had a really good time and the food and wine were all delicious. My only problem was with the service. The service was slow and I got my octopus way ahead of everyone else. I was totally finished plus more time before everyone else got their food. Also had to wait for seconds on wine. I understand that it seemed you were short handed. We would definitely try again.

    Such a cute little place. Delicious wine, not drenched in sugar like a lot of wineries. Employees were friendly and informative about wines and the town. Food was so fresh and delicious. I can't say enough good thing about it. We can't wait to go back in March. It's a definite must see. Make a reservation. Note that it's a tasting room, not a winery but it was just adorable and we loved it!

    Loved the wine and atmosphere. Fare is very light so it is not really a "dinner" experience. It was enough for us, but may not be for all diners. Otherwise there are no complaints! We had a great time. Staff was knowledgeable of the wines.
