My partner and I had a wonderful tour with Erika this past weekend. She was extremely knowledgeable and shared a lot of insight into the unique qualities of VA wines. The itinerary was thoughtfully chosen and showcased wineries we might not have otherwise made it to. Lunch was a beautiful addition to the day. Delicious food and very nicely laid... More

A good day all around. My wife and I are not anywhere close to being wine experts and Chris went out of his way not only to teach us about wine, but the history of Virginia winemaking as well. We would very likely do it again.

This tour was the highlight of our trip. You get a terrific itinerary, a comfortable ride, beautiful scenery, a personal guide, history and education. And the wine! We learned so much from Chris and from each of the four wine tastings. We enjoyed lunch in a beautiful outdoor setting. If you are visiting Charlottesville, you absolutely need to carve out... More

I have been on wine tours in Virginia before, but none like this. Chris was a great guide, he gave us an overview of the Virginia wine industry, and some high-level wine education. He described what works really well in this area vs well known areas (California, etc). The vineyards he chose only served estate grown wines. Everyone knew him... More

Stayed at the Arcady vineyard and also went on their wine tour (note: definitely stay at their vineyard if you're visiting the area overnight). Chris was our tour guide and he was fantastic. As a winemaker himself he knows quite a lot about the process at making wine, and he was great at explaining things about wine that we had... More

We had the pleasure of touring some great VA wineries with an even better tour guide, Chris. Do not think that a wine tour with Arcady means you just get driven from winery to winery. Chris did a wonderful job of describing so much about the region we were visiting, as well as giving his well informed opinion about VA... More

Erica was nice and very knowledgeable about the wineries, their owners, and their wines. She had prepared a booklet for us before the tour, listing all the wines we were going to taste, so we could simply mark the wine we liked. The Virginia cheese she served during break was excellent (who knew Virginia made good cheese!!). Our family enjoyed... More

I am so happy that I was able to book a tour with Arcady Private Wine Tours. The vineyards out in Charlottesville are not right next to each other and it was really great to have a knowledgable and friendly tour guide to navigate through the roads. It was relaxing and very much enjoyable. My husband and I had an... More

Spectacular fall weekend in Charlottesville highlighted by spending time with Chirs at some of the best wineries on the East Coast. Highly recommend the tour to maximize your time. Glad we scheduled on Friday as Saturday was insane with fall foliage crowds. We especially liked the fact the Chris was flexible enough to cater the tour to our tastes. King... More
