Stopped in with a few friends while staying at Wintergreen and enjoyed the experience. This is a fairly small tasting room but nicely laid out and the staff took the time to explain their craft.

As part of our drive along the breweries and wineries in route 151, we made a stop here for some wine tastings. The lady who took care of us, along with her dog Carson, were very helpful and friendly. She did a great job explaining the tastes and history of each wine we tasted. I am very partial to reds,...

We loved the wine tasting here. The staff was knowledgeable and very friendly. We don't drink a lot of wine, but we are about to, as we bought a case of delicious reds and whites.

Flying Fox is a smaller winery, but don't let this make you skip it. The tasting room is still big enough to seat many, and the wines speak for themselves. The staff was knowledgeable and friendly. Very enjoyable visit!

While visiting Rt 151, this is a "Must See" winery! They offer a nice selection of wines and the tasting room is quaint and beautiful and staffed with knowledgeable, helpful staff. They are also attached to the Bleu Ridge B&B, which looks very interesting.

This small winery is located just off the road, as the vines are grown a few miles away. Lovely, if tiny tasting area and knowledgeable and down-to-earth staff that will teach you something about wine if you venture in. Merlot lovers, you must try it here! It is distinct!

Small winery with very nice wines and knowledgeable staff. Owned by a former physician and his wife who was a dean of students at UVA. Nice family business.

This was our first stop on doing a 2 couple wine tour, while visiting Wintergreen. It is small, but friendly, and some tasty wines. The staff was friendly, even though it was a packed house. We would def visit here again on our next trip to the Blue Ridge!

Small winery. Rents a building in Afton, VA beside Le Bleu B&B. We enjoyed the red wine and sat outside in a small courtyard, staff decanted the wine for us, very relaxing, great staff and welcome.

I visited as part of a group that was being escorted by a limo service. When we arrived, we were immediately reprimanded for being a group over six (we were seven) without a reservation. Really, this should have been directed to the limo driver as we were brought there by him rather than reprimanding the whole group. The woman was... More
