    Atmosphere was great, friendly staff welcoming environment. Beautiful place. Pizza was delicious. However was a little disappointed with the Charcuterie Board I didn’t find that there was enough meat and cheese for the price.

    Five of us went for a Bachelorette outing on Saturday August 13th. I was able to book a last minute reservation on Open Table. There was a non-stop line up at the door the entire time we were there. So make sure you have a reservation on Saturday’s! I ordered the charcuterie board and it was amazing! The other girls each ordered pizzas. They were think crust and not very filling. But all said, they were amazing! For drinks, we had the white wine flights, which were amazing and a great price. Service was decent. Once the food came, the server never really came back though. We had a great experience overall, and would definitely recommend it ☺️

    Shale ridge is the best! My friends and I keep coming back because we love the food, drinks and ambiance. The staff is always polite, helpful and professional. It’s the best place to celebrate special occasions like birthdays, wedding party outings, or just to go out for an afternoon drink.

    Overall this winery is wonderful. It is an up and commer, so don’t be thrown off as you drive up. The service was fantastic. They took the time to explain the wines and ciders. Once inside the ambiance is perfect and quaint. The swing tables are fun. Even after our time was up, they provide a picnic table area to which we could continue to enjoy beverages and scenery. They checked in on us consistently, staff were very engaging and kind. We stayed almost almost 4 hours enjoying company and the ambiance. Play music which adds to the experience. My only critique is food options. They are clear on website limited menu and it really is a limited menu. As someone with food allergies, I only had one option and I normally am plant based diet but had to put that aside if I wanted food with my alcohol. Vegans eat before you go. Pizza appears to be premade/packaged as they were not able to add or take away items, I.e. pizza without cheese or make your own. My friends had the pizza and said it was so good, especially the dill pickle one. Charcuterie board is good for 2, maybe even three people as an appetizers. Everything was very affordable. I do recommend you take an afternoon or evening to drive there and enjoy all it has to offer.

    Shale Ridge Estate WineryResponded on August 1, 2022Hi there, Thank you for providing us with your feedback.

    A lovely winery/cidery with a beautiful brand new tasting room. It’s obvious when you drive up that they are in the process of landscaping the property and in particular around the new building. It’s a nice open structure with large garage doors that open to the scenery on three sides. This provides a beautiful breeze on a hot summer day! The pretty swing tables are definitely popular and I would recommend a reservation for most of the seating as they were busy on more than one visit. Seating time limits are 90 minutes which is pretty standard these days. We enjoyed our cider and wine flights as well as nibbled away on a pizza Looking forward to our next visit and to see it when all the work on the property is completed.

    Very disappointed in our recent experience. Service was below average, they moved our reservation, to then not seat us where we made the reservation for, to then rushing us to leave because they had a reservation where they sat us, even though there were other open tables. I had to go to the counter to ask for plates and napkins as our server didn’t bring us any. Interestingly, I noticed we were the ONLY table to not get actual glasses; we were given flimsy clear plastic cups for our water. The pizza we ordered was terrible. It’s unfortunate as we chose shale ridge to celebrate a birthday. We definitely will not be back. The only positive thing about our visit was the charcuterie board.

    Wonderful views and atmosphere and I really enjoyed our swing table overlooking the ridge. I had the cider flight which allowed for a bit of sampling and we had the dill pickle pizza as a light lunch. Best dill pickle pizza I’ve ever had! Nice thin crust with a lovely sauce that wasn’t too thick or creamy. Would definitely recommend if anyone is looking for a unique experience with their partner or a group of good girlfriends!

    Beautiful locale and atmosphere, great friendly service. Disappointing that everything on site must now be booked ahead, except the Adirondack chairs. We live an hour away, and used to be able to go for an impromptu afternoon drink if the mood struck. The flights are delicious, thin crust pizza is good.

    Myself and three friends came to do the trail ride (which we absolutely loved). We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and we will be back. I said “moderate” for noise level but we never felt like we needed to compete with the tables around and the music in the background was at a perfect level that allowed us a bit of privacy for our chat. Fun experience, fun afternoon. Thank you!

    This is such a cute place to spend an afternoon! The drinks and food are amazing. However, make sure you order enough at first to last your entire visit because you probably won't see your waitress for another hour..
