It was nice place but the food truck service made it where I'll never go back. It took over 50mins to get my food (2 baskets) and when asked where my food was I kept being told I'm next. After the 4th person after"I'm next" I hit highly upset and agree reached over to the side and handed me a bag that had been sitting there and my food was cold. I stood by the window the entire time and they NEVER called my name. I usually never feel discriminated against but I did this time. If you're LGBT, I wouldn't recommend this place.

I had an incredible day. I felt as though all the safety protocols were taken really seriously. The views, atmosphere, and wines were fantastic. My only feedback is that my friend and I did the tasting flight and then we were interested in buying a bottle of something that was not part of the tasting. We asked the person at the counter if we could have a taste of the wine we wanted to buy and she said no because she would have to open a new bottle which didn’t make sense to me because that wine is sold by the glass but I didn’t want to argue so I just bought a bottle of wine we had already tried. Other than that it was a fantastic day and I plan to return again.

First time going to The Winery at Bull Run and it was a great experience! I love that there is a separate area for adults with children so if you don't have children or you don't want to be around them you don't have to. The Winery itself is beautiful and the staff was friendly and available when we had questions. We went during phase 2 of COVID so we were unable to do a wine tasting but enjoyed the 2 bottles that we picked on a whim. Parking was easy and the restrooms were clean. We will definitely be back soon!

Just too hot to sit on General's Deck; sun shades do little and umbrellas kept swinging in the wind. Should be a service person coming around to clean up and offer fresh ice for the bucket. Best to put up a permanent roof/sunsetter. Bring back the tastings for members, and not in tiny plastic cups. Did not eat from food truck so no review.

Great first experience sitting in the Production Barn. Great service, music and wine made for a wonderful afternoon. Sad to say, the food truck was very slow and he admitted he had not checked our online orders. It was over an hour, but delicious when received. Looking forward to the next visit!

overall great experience during covid re-opening. my entire party felt safe and relaxed throughout our stay. however, the wine pours were very small, especially for $9. for the size of the cups used, it should've been filled up most of the way. instead each pour was about 6-7 large sips, not at all equivalent to what you'd get if it were a wine glass - understand you can't use glass during covid but pours need to be larger. Finally at closing my friend and I encountered a very rude interaction between a staff member that was uncalled for. a family was exploring the space on the lawn, not making any attempts to sit down or anything, just looking at the grounds. a woman closing up the main building very rudely addressed them - "we're closed. it says so on the sign" - in a very condescending tone. completely uncalled for. and the time wasn't listed on the sign at the end of the walkway. it was literally 5 minutes after closing and there were many others besides this group walking to cars and milling about. the attitude and non-hospitality cast a negative impression at the end of what was otherwise a very lovely day. just be kinder. we're all trying to figure out how to return to "normal" right now.

We ran into trouble because we had to go back and forth to the front check-in a couple times because with each table we were given to sit down at, there was already someone there. The front check-in didn’t seem to have an answer why or were helpful. Eventually we did get a table, but it was clear people were switching tables on the fly or the front wasn’t keeping track.

The reason for our visit was to celebrate a special birthday of a friend. The ambiance, staff at the bar and the staff attending the tables were all wonderful. The really disappointing part was making a simple adjustment to our reservation. The picnic tables allow 6 people max and we had 2 additional guests joining our party. So naturally I called to make a reservation for a second table. After no answer on multiple occasions and no call back on a voice message I left, 2 days later I was able to talk to a real person. They couldnt help me add another table, they couldnt tell me if there are 2 tables available at the same time, they couldn't give a refund if we can't secure a second table at the same time, they couldn't guarantee that the tables would be next to each other or in close proximity, no plan what happens if its raining. Sure enough there wasn't a second table available for the same time of the day and the only way to find out is after you pay the reservation fee. No effort to even try to accommodate, all I was told was that nothing is guaranteed and members have priority. Once we got there with the first part of our party, with an hour difference between the 2 tables, we noticed that the adult section was 70% empty. An hour later the remaining guests arrive and they are not given a second table, they are sent to the same table that we already have 6 people on. We quickly asked for the second table and eventhough there are no other people seated around us, we are not even given the closest table so we can all celebrate together. Such a beautiful winery, but i would never plan a celebration there. Very poor customer service on the phone. So many similar businesses are going above and beyond, i would want to deal with this headache again. This was supposed to be a fun celebration. It shouldnt be that hard to make a simple reservation.

Had a great time but don’t understand why our request for a table with an umbrella was overlooked. There were at least 15 tables free the entire time we were there with umbrellas. We would have enjoyed our time more if we weren’t baking in the hot sun. I felt like my request was overlooked on purpose because everyone else in our section had an umbrella.

Requested a main patio with view seat (thinking this was going to be the upstairs patio because it said, "with a view". And we were seated at table 97 which is tucked away in the back and had no view, really, and my friend also has sensitive ears with ear surgery in the past and we were right next to the live music. Mostly upset that we didnt get the view that we reserved 1 week in advance for and were pushed in the back for a $10 reservation that is not refundable and also $10 that does not go towards any wine credit.

love the live music. did not try the food- brought our own. loved that all guests were wearing masks until they arrived at table. The young man who greeted our car to give us the paper directions had a mask around his neck but was not wearing it :( We, inside the car, were wearing ours to speak to him. We went to the winery last Friday 7/3 and the other young man/greeter at that time, WAS wearing his mask. :) Thank you for a great time. It's fun to be around people but safely. Palmer family

Overall experience was great! We had a lovely time celebrating our anniversary there. People were kind and helpful, wine was great, food was great, ambiance was great. The only thing to be improved is a source of water. When we entered, we were told to empty our water bottles and could refill them when we entered. But once we got in, the only place to refill them was the bathroom, which had very low water pressure and took too long. Small thing, though. We'll be coming back!

We were randomly assigned a table under a tent, and when we requested to be moved to a table outside of the tent we were rudely told “no” by the ladies working at the checkin. It should be noted there were ~24 empty tables in our section, and many stayed empty throughout our stay. We could have been easily swapped.

The entry hostesses at Bull Run couldn’t have been kinder. I reserved a table (with deposit) for 11am on Fathers Day, and was late coming in from a hike at the adjacent battleground. I called to let them know, and they not only held my table but extended my window till 2pm. My first real food outing since the pandemic started, and so grateful for their graceful flexibility!

The heaters in the open tent did not keep us warm. The $20 was a waste to reserve the picnic table! I had to wait 25 minutes for food from the food truck! Time away from the birthday party. The musician could not be heard. Save your money on entertainment so you can offer lower prices on the food. Ten dollars for gluten free crackers!!! Not an enjoyable time!

The food choices did nor reflect what was being advertised for the day. The food truck was out of the supplies needed to prepare meals. The grass was extremely tall- considering the circumstances of life right now- people are making improvisions to accommodate the public. You would think the winery will cut the crass every weekend. It was scary to have the grass near my table above my ankels in 98 degree heat!!!! The wine prices went up? But you are charging a $10 reservation fee that does not get used towards your purchase? I feel taken advantage of. The outdoor bathrooms are convenient, but- just because they are outdoors doesn't mean they shouldn't be cleaned. While everyone figures out what the new norm will look like- it would be nice to consider patrons safety and satisfaction overall. Take a walkthrough - as a patron- see if you are pleased.

This past time the seating in the tent was not as nice and not as warm as the previous time when were in the patio area not far from the singer. I was chilled most of the time, so I did not enjoy it as much. On the bright side with the breeze blowing through the tent, there was plenty of fresh air. We were at table 78. The water was turned off in the bathrooms in the barn, that was inconvenient. I thought that was the bathroom for all the patrons were suppose to use, so not my best visit.

The winery has expansive outdoor seating, under umbrellas, and was enjoyable even on a day where the temps were in the 90s. They have done an admirable job of adapting to the COVID-19 situation, though offer no table service. You go to a central station to order and pick up your wines. They have installed plastic partitions, and serve in disposable cups. I don't know what it was like before. They still offer wines by the bottle, some by the glass, and a testing flight with a written description of each of six wines you can read on your own. There is no sales pitch for wines or a membership (we are not members, although members get free tastings and discounts on other purchases). A food truck is available in the afternoons. We also saw a lot of families with children looking like they were arriving for an afternoon at the park. There is an area designated for families, and another adults-only area.

Bull Run has done a great job setting up a reservation service and safe sales area. This ensures that both the patrons and employees reduce their exposure risk. When we arrived and went to our table someone was already sitting there. They had clearly not reserved a table but were just hopping from each open table without reserving/paying. For those of us who did make a reservation and pay it was frustrating to witness this. Perhaps someone should do a check to ensure this doesn't take place.

Lovely, socially distanced way to get outside. Tables were well spaced, Observed staff cleaning regularly, precautions for ordering were in place. Food from a food truck (Not sure if they have one every day) so check the Schedule before you go or bring your own picnic, only a couple Of snack items available from the bar.

Thank you for providing a beautiful outlet/get-a-way/experience during these times. I realize some of the limitations were in place to create a safe environment for all. I missed the baguette, but the meats/cheeses were very good quality. I like the reservation and we were give a fantastic location, the lower level of the covered patio looking out at the vineyards. I happen to be a brain injury survivor so I would have had difficulty if placed on the upper part with the series of tables. For future I do not know if there is a way to request the lower part, as I think it is the only area that would work for me. Sound is an issue as I cannot tune out any sound and I perceive it at a much higher volume that others and where I was...was excellent as the upper portion the music was way too loud for me. So this worked great... not sure if the tables will always have the same number assignment, would be good to know. I was not thrilled to have to pay for a table, but getting that location was worth it for now. I would have rather put it into more wine and food, but I get it and there is extra cleaning that needs to happen...so know it is appreciated. Getting there early was good for me as the parking was full when I left. Thank you so much for your thoughtful care in opening up. I look forward to returning soon. It was so good for my soul to be out in the country looking at nature. I am so grateful. Thank you!

As soon as we arrived and were directed into the overflow lot, my discomfort skyrocketed. There are TOO MANY PEOPLE being allowed on your premises! I assume the driving factor is your goal to bring in as much money as possible -- all at the expense of your customers' health. Just because your dozens of tables are 6 feet apart doesn't mean it's safe. You are encouraging groups of friends to sit together at your tables; those groups are not related families. We almost left but decided to go get our reservation filled because we drove more than 40 minutes to get there. Your check in progress was chaotic and two things became very clear. First, your reservation process online is a joke. Very poor descriptions about where seating areas are actually located. Second, making a reservation doesn't actually reserve a specific table anywhere. We were very unhappy with the "barn patio" as our backyard at home has better ambiance. One of the staff told me it was a cool thing to sit there and have music piped through the speakers to jam to and I almost laughed because the music was horrible. Thankfully she didn't care if we just moved to another area, because again the reservations are basically meaningless. So we found a much more scenic and secluded spot where we could enjoy our plastic cup wine more safely. You need to seriously rethink your strategy of letting hundreds of people in all in the name of profit. You should check out Potomac Point Winery. They are doing a fabulous job and it's crazy but when you make a reservation you actually have a table, a clear map of where you'll be, and their food is fabulous along with the wine. I don't think we'll be returning to Bull Run any time soon. Too many people. Your wine is ok but not enough to surpass the overall experience you're currently presenting. Do better.

I was very disappointed to find out that we could not bring water in. We were forced to buy overpriced water beverages. They did not tell us ahead of time or mention this on the website. We only found out when we drove up and the man gave us a paper. The security guard checking my bag made me open up the bottle in my bad to prove to him it was empty. I did not appreciate that. If I knew I would have to leave my drinks in the car and have my bags checked and water bottles examined I would not have chosen this place. Please let your customers know ahead of time. That way they can make the decision to come or not.

The family friendly heated patio cost $20 to reserve but essentially provided no heat since it was in such an open area with a single heater for the table. The staff made accommodations for us to move inside when we asked if there was space, of course this cost an extra $10 to do. The adult only heated patio and tent space was much nicer by comparison as there was protection from the wind and more enclosed to maintain heat, so it was frustrating knowing how much more comfortable we would have been in there. Would recommend just paying $10 for a non heated picnic table and bring plenty of blankets to keep warm since you'll need them anyway on the "heated" patio. Also, the food truck seemed understaffed as just one person was working it, which resulted in him seeming stressed and having too much to do/long food waits.

The Winery did it's best to accommodate such a rush of people wanting to experience being outside. I think the only critique I had was the quality check on the tables. My table was already sat with other people. I asked them to move and they said they were two tables moved too. No one in our area was at the right table and it seemed people were moving because of the sun exposure.

This facility needs to get recycling bins in place ASAP. There is a tremendous amount of plastic(bottles and cups)being discarded daily. It's quite traumatic to see this. I hope the winery can address this issue by being environmentally conscious and recycle their plastics, cans and bottles.

The wine tasting cups were in tiny plastic cups which easily blew over (we were sitting outside and there was occasional wind). It was hard to enjoy the wine tasting experience as we were worried/holding our cups down the whole time.

I understand trying to prevent underage drinking but in the summer, it would be much easier if patrons could bring their own water to the lawn since it's outdoors and not all of the umbrellas are fully functional. Especially when people have been inside for so long, many people are not staying as hydrated as they should which is very dangerous and the water bottle sold on-site are smaller than most people's reusable bottles.

I was very impressed with the organization of the winery. I felt like the measures they took to socially distance tables, tell people where to go, and the reservation requirement made me like I could enjoy myself in the middle of a pandemic. It was my first time going out to a social event since the start of lockdown and I felt secure. I will be back.

We are so excited you are open again. We attended the members only soft launch and then again this weekend. We have two kids so we've been in the family area. The picnic tables are great and we enjoy hanging out. My only comment is in regards to the umbrellas. Twice we've been and twice our umbrella's have had trouble. One leaned so much I was afraid it would snap in half. Then yesterday our umbrella didn't go up at all. Just ask that you guys check on the umbrellas and replace if necessary. Sorry to be a pain. We do love it there and we can't wait to come back. This is really a small thing but thought we would mention it. Thank you so much!

There was no service to speak of even though we paid $20 per table for our group of 8 (2 tables). We reserved at the family "heated" patio space. But no one helped with the heaters or setting up the tables. We had to drag the heavy heaters ourselves and turn them on ourselves. Also, you can't get wine glasses unless you buy the glasses for $4 each. We weren't interested in buying the glasses so we had to use plastic cups that were flying away because of the wind. This is unfortunate because in previous visits, the experience was decent.

We did not purchase any food, we brought our own. We also brought some bottled soda, but then were told we could not bring it in, so we had to buy more soda onsite. That is really my only negative comment. Other than that, I thought it was very well organized, allowing everyone to social distance, while still enjoying a nice outing. Tables were well spaced, each table had an umbrella, music was good - we enjoyed our visit.

The area where we got the table was not a good place to be. It was our first time and we wanted to be in the open area backyard or so. The food truck people were very rude to me. I had to have an ugly discussion with that woman because she delayed forever my order. She gave their food to customers who ordered after me. I was very upset because of that. I had to approach and asked what was happening with my order then she just grabbed from the back and gave it to me. I complained immediately and she couldn’t explained why she did that. I was very very upset for that. I Was the third person on line, my number was 3, and she delivered 4-7! Orders and not mine, I waited for 30 minutes to get 2 pork sandwiches. That’s when I went to her and .... that’s was ridiculous, terrible service and nasty food. It was already cold, greasy. Sorry to say but it was no a good experience for us.
