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.
Lots of fun.

Went for the wine and cheese pairing. Had Danny as our wine host. Gave info on the best way to enjoy the wine. Very personable. Pizza smelled good. Live music. Started to rain so we left but bought half a case of wine. Will go back again.

One of the first wineries my wife and I visited (years ago) and we love to go back from time to time to sip some excellent wine, grab a few bottles and chat with the folks who run the place. On our last visit the guys were bottling the 2012 Marisa ( a delightful red) as we arrived on scene. We had the pleasure of sampling a freshly bottled number and it was delightful. (2 bottles - 1 now gone). The Lorenzino Reserve (red) is deep and lustrous and again a bottle went home with us. So - the tasting room is tucked inside what appears to be an old rustic barn and is really quite neat...gives it an old downhome feel. There are vines only feet from where you enter the tasting room. As you drive up Falls Road and approach the turn in you can see the vines adorning the hillside. Mr Basignani has a top notch product and he and his staff are very affable
Wine quality doesn't match the winery

Went there 11/24 for a tasting. Wines are very good, the guy giving our tasting was very informative, is part of that family so knows all the history which was interesting. One the oldest wineries in MD I believe. The tasting room is charming I suppose, but looks like very little has been done to it in a coupla decades. I suppose they see the bottles with 10+ years of dust on them as a feature not a fault. To each his own I suppose. The grounds of the place could use a little help but probably looks a lot better when everything is green. I suspect they have a very loyal following, but it could be 10x better with not much invested. They also have good rosemary infused olive oil. But again....the wine was great with a wide selection. I put average only because the place could really use an overhaul on aesthetics, but I suspect that may be on purpose.
