I have been to about 10 wineries around Charlottesville, VA and this one ranks 1-2. I just loved the venue and the wines. Most of their wines are produced from estate grown grapes and are obviously crafted by a very skilled winemaker. The servers were were very engaging and knowledgeable. I came home with some Pinot Noir and Festa de... More

Been here a few times. Snow covered fields the last. Autumn days on the patio drinking a bottle of their Mountain White is a lasting pleasant time. Servers can be a bit snooty, but forget them and the overall experience is memorable any season..

Have stopped at many Charlottesville wineries, and this is one of the best! Great facility. Has a welcoming patio with beautiful views where you can sit and enjoy a glass of wine after tasting some wonderful vintages. Our sommelier was outstanding! Very knowledgeable and extremely personable, she answered all of our questions ranging from the history of the winery to... More

We tasted 5 each of reds and whites and were pleasantly surprised. My partner was looking for a possible venue for her daughter's upcoming wedding, so our mission was two-fold...the wines were good and the Tuscany styling of the facilities make it a great possibility for a wedding site.

Excellent wines and spectacular views. Please follow the rules though with reservations for larger groups and no outside alcoholic beverages. The rules are there for a good reason but then people want special treatment and write poor reviews when it was their fault! This is a must see if you are in the area.

We did our own wine tour while visiting Wintergreen Resort. This is a beautiful place, and the staff was very friendly. We did a tasting and got a nice wine glass. The grounds are nice to walk around and enjoy the scenery. We can't wait to go back again!

My husband and I visited Afton Mountain Vineyards in early October. The scenery was just spectacular. We drove from Richmond just wanting to hit a few vineyards on a Saturday, and we were thrilled to find this place first. Having never been to a wine tasting before I was a little apprehensive when we walked in, not knowing where to... More

The hostess who came out the door and, the only word I can think of is "confronted" our party of 7 almost ruined our visit. She asked if we had a reservation and when we stated we didn't she told us that parties of more than six needed a reservation. We explained that one of our party was driving and... More

This new winery is in a lovely setting, beautifully apointed tasting rooms (2) with glorious views of the mountains. We enjoyed both the red and white's served during the tasting, friendly staff. There is an outside gazebo to sit and enjoy the surroundings.
