"G", a Stone Villa employee hosted two tables for our friends on Sunday. We had a wonderful time enjoying the music, atmosphere, service and comaraderie. There was a good selection of wines to sample and moderately priced. With this type of adult business, one can understand why specific rules must be enforced for the enjoyment of all. We will definetly return for more fun.

This used to be a really fun place. As they have become more popular they have begun to clamp down a little more than before. I have noticed even less of a tolerance with children. Before they could run around now not so much. Still have good wine. Still a nice place, just a little more strict

Good....why would you want kids running around screaming anyways? You are in an adult atmosphere not an amusement park. Leave the.kids at home.

They are probably relatives of the couple who brought a 3 month old to the midnight showing of Dark Knight in Aurora.

Whats wrong with allowing kids there? They have a few acres of grass that they encourage to be used. They promote the place as a family gathering location. They do a massive mothers day promotion. Seems like they want children at the location. As stated earlier the winery has tightened the clamps a little bit. I don't think the poster was being negative about the place just stating they are not a relaxed as they were 5 years ago which i agree with.

I have to agree with the no kids policy at the
winery. It is definitely an adult atmosphere not a place for
young children. I would think as a parent you would want to
come up there and totally relax as well and not have to worry
about keeping an eye on your children. Plus, also I look at
it this way if you choose to drink and drive that's up to you
but don't put your kids in that position. Get a babysitter.

I to have seen the rude employees in action at StoneVilla. Especially the short blonde. It is a shame in this day and age and the economy as it is that Randy will let this go on. Plus he also is quite rude himself. True, the wines there are much better than the other local wineries, but, they aren't that much better to take the chance of not improving their customer care and service. If they don't get friendlier, I'm afraid they will lose out. Big time. My first experience with the rudeness was 2 years ago and it hasn't improved. The first time was with that blonde too....I refuse to go to Walnut Hill after what they did to Kathy there. Her and her husband were instrumental in getting that going and then were pushed out. If you want to take about a 3 hour drive. Go to Shade Moutain Winery in Middleburg, PA. They are the best and also are the best priced winery we have ever been to. And that is a hobby of ours. Visiting wineries. We get it by the cases from there.

I agree....in the end there is alcohol there and it should be a calm atmosphere. Do you really think the kids want to be there anyways? That would have to be boring...fields or no fields. Plus you should take into consideration the adults that do not have children. They are there for a nice time and probably don't want to feel like they are at a daycare. Just saying.

This is a local winery we are talking about that people stop at to just grab a bottle of local sweet wines and not Napa. And if you want to talk about consideration tell that blonde who looks like she got hit by a big of what the F*ck that just because you wear a thong does not mean you look good in a thong!!! But in all seriousness. This is a small local winery. Nothing to get too worked up about. If it closed tomorrow the impact it has left in the world is next to nothing except to maybe a handful of people.

wow! It has been 3 years since I posted the original thread on this forum. I am shocked to see that a lot of people still feel that the customer service at Stonevilla is crapy. When you have a bad experience somewhere, you always wonder if your feelings and grievences are justifed, or maybe you went off the deep end a little bit. It is very bitter sweet to find out that I am not alone in my opinion of our treatment that day and many days after. It is a shame that a place with such an awesome atmosphere and great potential can be ruined by a few. I am happy to say that I have not been back to Stonevilla, and shared my story with so many friends that had similar experiences. Some still go, but most choose other local winery venues to purchase gift baskets or beverages from. You will still find me making purchases at the local farmers market or sand hill berries, supporting my community and local farmers. I love living in this area and all the wonderful things it has to offer. I had a bad experience in a place I once held with high regard. Oh well. Their loss. As Jimmy Buffett once said, it was "just another shitty day in paradise."

you are right.like i said before, did you talk to randy about this. she was doing her job.( as per say). tell randy about it and how embrassed you were by the actions of the greeter. if he is unwilling to heed your complaints. then together you both lose out on a what could be a good thing. and thats a shame. note- if you go to la casa narcisi winery, be prepared for the wait staff here. if seated on the patio (after purchase). they will on you to order something every half hour, thats their job. just speak up on when or if you will be ordering food from the restaurant. enjoy!
I have been to Narcissi many times, you don't have to spend a dime and you can bring your own food. The wine is much, much better than Stone Villa. Those people at Stone Vuilla are extremely rude and didn't give a crap when we tried to voice our concerns. I was told by the owner,this is my house if you don't like it, get out, so I did. We probably would have brought some wine to go, and when I metioned that, Randy said he could care less. What happened to the customer being right. How can you in good conscience make anyone stand when there is a chair 2 feet from them and the patio nazi freaks out when you go to use it! RIDICULOUS!!!!!!! They can keep their wine it isn't very good anyways!! Will never, ever, ever go back there. Bye bye Stone Villa, hello Narcissi--if you have never tried it, I highly suggest it!!!

If you want a quaint winery with wonderful wines, excellent entertainment, nice, friendly owners and staff try La Casa narcisi Winery in Gibsonia. Myhusband and I used to frequent Stonevilla until we went to La Casa. The are in partnership with Siba, and serve wonderul food at reasonable prices. The wine is better here...and cheaper than Stone Villa.
I COULD NOT AGREE WITH YOU MORE!!!

I've been to Stonevilla a few times. I've had better wine at the ballpark.
Happy first timer

Placed our wedding favors order with Chris at Stone Villa today. Although he wasnt overly bubbly, he did more than take good care of us throughout the process. We tried all the wines and it took time. He showed us several wine label samples and within 2 minutes we had a sample label in our names and date. Although it is a little pricey, it was well worth it.
We tried to get an order together with a Pittsburgh business and in two months I couldnt get a sample label. In one hour, we had our order sign, sealed, and ready in two weeks. Thank you Chris for your time and we will be returning patrons!!

I so agree with you, my friends and I bought a few cases of their
wines, and were treated rudely, when I told them about it, they
totally denied it!
Spend your money some where else, and spread the word....:)

The wife and I go there a lot and haven't had a complaint. If you aren't rude to them they aren't rude to you.
