Charlottesville and its environs offer the oenophile endless diversion. Though Veritas won't feed you with their generously poured, and delicious tastings, fireplace cheese plate with a purchased bottle definitely round out a jolly pre-noel tasting. My second time. Lovely folks, pretty surroundings.

I loved Veritas for its Sauvignon Blanc and the beautiful view. The atmosphere is wonderful, and I enjoyed all the wines. Not the best value, but an absolutely wonderful experience. Must-see!

Stopped in here with my bae on a lovely sunday afternoon. The Sauvignon Blanc has absolutely fantastic notes and tasted simlly divine. The property is gorgeous and the ballroom makes you want to break out in song and dance. This is an essential stop if you are in the area!

I've been to almost every winery in Virginia and find myself always coming back here. Great selection of wines and the atmosphere is to die for. Indoor fireplace and leather couches. Friendly staff. Outside fireplace and pits, picnic tables, and all kinds of land. The views are Killer. Do not miss this place.

We visited Veritas on a sunny warm afternoon in early November for a wine tasting. They were not serving their highly touted Viognier... sold out! But, we ended up getting several nice glasses of chardonnay and sitting in the adirondack chairs on the lawn. It is an absolutely stunning property and worth spending time drinking in the views and wine.

When you take a left towards Charlottesville after leaving Staunton, you will find a great winery, Veritas, meaning Truth and the Harvard slogan. Afton Va is stunningly beautiful. This is a combo B & B and Winery and the wines are quite good. Tasting is $8 per person. Would love to stay there some day.

Very knowledgeable server. He could discuss not only this winery's wine but also comparable wines made elsewhere.

We arrived while a wedding party was taking photos! As we snuck past trying not to photobomb it was impossible not to appreciate the couple's taste in choosing the locale. A beautiful mountain setting. The tasting room mimicked my perfect dream of an alpine winter lodge. Gorgeous wood and cozy seats. There was a little bit of a wait but... More

We stayed for 5 days as guests and old friends of Bill and Di Tonkins, who are part owners. This is a must-see visit if in the area of Afton, Virginia.

We visited the winery and at first were very impressed. We purchased several bottles of wine and a cheese tray. Our group fell in love with the olives. When asked to purchase more olives, they refused and would not sell any to us. We even offered to pay for a cheese tray and just get 4 cups of olives. Again... More
