I have been here twice, once with my boyfriend, and another with my best friend for her birthday. It's beautiful, only 20 minutes from staunton. The tasting was reasonable, I had more options the first time I went, the second time they were out of quite a few. We still ended up trying at least 6. You also get to... More

We have been a few times. We've had a "basic" tour - we've had the tour/tasting w/ lunch-box (call ahead) and we've been to Starry Nights (bought tickets to have dinner there). What a beautiful place & what a GREAT chef! The food that was served at Starry Nights was just lovely! So glad this is so close to us... More

I am relatively inexperienced, but I've visited several Virginia wineries now, and this might be my favorite. I like the interior and exterior (the view is lovely). I really enjoyed many of the wines, and the woman who hosted our tasting was informative and cheerful.

I would return to Veritas and would recommend it to friends and family. My mother and I visited in August for her birthday, and the lady who helped us with our tasting was really descriptive and provided great background about the history of the wine. She even let my mom have some of their sparkling wine since it was her... More

I was with a large group for a Wine & Design event, where we painted and drank wine. I used to attend the Starry Nights events but it's gotten so crowded that it's not enjoyable anymore. I would highly recommend visiting if you're in the area.

We were a group of 10 up for a couples weekend of golf and wine from Richmond. This winery was beautiful with the grapes literally hanging down over you as you walked into the winery. We enjoyed some cheese and crackers as we sampled several bottles. Even ran into some friends from home and left with more bottles. A must... More

Our visit to Veritas today (8-17-14) was a big hit with us! The beauty and serenity of the vineyard and its buildings and the public areas hold their own to any match of the vineyards we have visited in Napa Valley in California. We have tried a few of the other vineyards in the Charlottesville area over the past several... More

Absolutely beautiful!! The grounds are amazing. Quiet, country setting with seating outdoors or take your blanket and sit anywhere. Tasting room is beautiful and unique. I'm not a wine drinker, but went with a friend that is, I actually enjoyed the tasting though. $7 for a wine tasting (I think it was about 8 wines) and you get the glass.

Stopped here first on a tour of the nearby wineries. What a great place! Really set the bar high! The tasting room was beautiful, and the grounds were as well. Got to taste many wines, and enjoyed them all.

I've been to a few vineyards and have often had FREE tastings, I was so disappointed to hear $7 to taste, I would totally have bought a bottle of wine IF they would let me taste for free so walked away.............lovely place for weddings - gorgeous views and property.........but seriously you can't afford to give may 3 tastes then charge???
