I actually liked this charcuterie board and appreciated that they were home made. However, I’m going to repeat myself – the service here is despicable. It was a while since I visited and am finally getting around to posting, but that just goes to show that I still remember vividly how rude and bitchy the server was. She certainly knew how to ruin my time at Barboursville Vineyards, and I will forever remember.

This cheese plate was decent – I liked the variety. But what really killed it for me was the service. Yes, the back restaurant felt a little stuffy and forced, but one of the servers was such a bitch! Seriously, I never use that word on my blog, but she 100% deserves that title. She surely knew how to completely ruin the guests’ experience! Coming from the Bay Area, we’re kinda spoiled when it comes to wine, food, and service but you would think that smaller wineries at less traveled AVA’s would place a great deal of importance on their customer service to assure return guests. This apparently isn’t the case at Barboursville Vineyards. It appears they have shitty service and don’t happen to care if you ever return!
