This was my first time going to a wine tasting so I really didn't know what to expect. We had a groupon deal for wine tasting with cheese plate. The person serving the wine only started working there a few months ago, so didn't really know much about wine or the process. That was a disappointment since I think it would have been interesting to learn more about what makes their wine special. I didn't like most of the wine I tasted because it was too dry and bitter (which I've been told is typical of Maryland wine), but did end up buying a bottle just for keepsake. I think they could have shown a slight more effort with the cheese plate, like for example serve it in anything else than just a pixe paper plate covered in plastic wrap. It consisted of a few slices of 3-4 different cheese, one strawberry, 4 grapes. The nice thing was receiving free wine glasses as part of our groupon deal. We had a good deal w/ groupon, but I don't think it would have been worth it to pay the full price considering the overall experience.

My husband and I wanted to visit Basignani after discovering how much we love their Monkton Moon wine. The place itself is a bit cramped and musty looking, but all of their wines are superb! We had Danny helping us, and we both adored his gruff charm and knowledge about everything under the sun. We decided to join their wine club, and we will definitely be back!
Fun Time. Staff clearly loves their jobs

Found a coupon for Basignani on Groupon, so thought we'd try it. What fun! Quaint winery tucked in the woods of Baltimore County, MD. Wines were delicious. We had one staff member dedicated to us throughout our taste testing. Kristen was friendly and knowledgeable. Impressed with the range of events they offer all year around. They do push their cases club a little hard, but it would have been a good deal if we drank wine more regularly.

It was a birthday weekend for just girls for myself and a friend. One of our other close friends brought us here. We were not disappointed. Only that we didn't purchase any wine bc we didn't have suitcases, just carry on's to go back home on the plane. The ambiance was rustic. We had the wine tasting with our pizza's. I think the taste guy's name was Danny. (i think). But oh my. Good stuff. Pizza with mushrooms, pepperoni, just great! And we were stuffed. It was inexpensive. So worth going for an afternoon out with a significant other or friends.
