Nice, relatively easy-to-find winery outside Charlottesville. Nice variety of wines to taste (and, of course, with the wife along) and select to purchase. Host Andrew was affable. A good stop for the wine lover.

We were doing 2 days of wine touring in Charlottesville and stopped in. Great wine and excellent staff. They also were dog friendly so we could bring our dogs with us.

Both red and white wines were amazing, especially the 2015 Lemberger and 2014 Claret. Sit back, relax and enjoy the unique thatch roof and rustic architure of this winery. Service was awesome even though it was very crowded.

A bit of an effort to get there but well worth the trip. Absolutely beautiful on a fall day. Smaller in size than most wineries, but that's a very good thing. Small size means small crowds which gives the staff the opportunity to present a...More
