This tour by far exceeded our expectations. Bit was an amazing tour guide, and was very knowledgeable on all of the local vineyards. He made every effort to make sure we had an amazing time. Bit even planed a special couples picnic for us as part of our tour. He made this the best wine tour we have ever experienced.... More

One of the most delightful times we have had. Our guide was Bit, a fascinating, pleasant, accommodating, and intelligent conversationalist who was the centerpiece of the trip. With 10 disparate personalities, all wanting to get a little something else out of our day, Bit was engaging as an historian, talking at length about the Civil war; a Virginia expert who... More

We booked an SUV and got a free upgrade to a 14 passenger van! Our driver, Bit, was friendly, personable, and very knowledgeable about the Virginia wineries we visited! We deferred to his expertise and ended up at wineries that were exactly what we wanted - small, intimate, not overly crowded, where we got to meet and talk with the... More

I booked a 3 stop wine tour with lunch and a dinner at the local. I booked the scenic route which meant we were stopping at Blenheim, Trump and Pippin Hill Wineries. All which were wonderful. There was an issue with the catering of lunch so we ended up eating at Trump which honestly I preferred that over sandwiches any... More

I surprised my wife on our anniversary by taking a trip to Charlottesville with Blue Ridge Wine Excursions. It was a perfect day with highlights: Andy - Our driver was the right combination of professional and fun. He was punctual, took us everywhere we wanted to go, made recommendations we never would have found on our own, and even made... More

This is our third experience hiring a driver to do a wine tour. Our last B & B recommended Albemarle Limosene and we are very fortunate they did! We could not have had a better day for our 5 hour wine tasting. J. C., our driver maximized our experience with his knowledge of the area and of the vineyards. It... More

From the time I contacted Andrea to schedule our tour, everything went perfectly! Andrea was so friendly and helpful in the scheduling. I received texts the day before, and when our driver had arrived at the pick up location. Michael, our driver, was wonderful! He had so much knowledge about the area, and the wineries themselves. He did a great... More

My wife and I recently took a trip to Charlottesville and we booked a wine tour with Blue Ridge Excursions. It was one of the most enjoyable trips we have ever had! Bergen was our driver and he was awesome. We are not huge wine connoisseurs so Bergen went out of his way to plan the ideal mix of wineries... More

My wife and I joined two other couples for 2 days in Charlottesville to go to the Paul McCartney concert. We stayed at the Boars Head Inn and decided to visit a couple of wineries and breweries impromptu one morning. Knowing that we didn't want to drive we contacted BRWE on the recommendation of the Boars Head Inn frontdesk. They... More

Highly recommend. The virginia back roads are narrow and winding. If you plan on visiting more than 1 or 2 wineries, hire these guys/gals. They will keep you out of the ditches and jail! 😊.
