  • What an amasing place beautiful front entrance with green grass and big trees with tables placed underneath. Views out over the water and vines, heavenly. Walked in to order up large for lunch and...  more »
  • Dropped in to the winery after Christmas. Very disappointed with the service and lack of assistance at the Purple Hen winery.  more »
  • $5 tasting charge! Wines are so bad you wouldn't buy after tasting, so they have to charge. I decided to try a wine anyway, thought I was in need of something to go with dinner, but there was nothing to my taste. Lesson learned, any winery that charges for tasting will not get my custom. Beautiful building, great picnic area and friendly service.
  • We have visited Purple Hen many times and are impressed with the quality of the wines, the warm ambiance and hospitality. Such a beautiful place at any time of the year - we'll be back!
