Outstanding and personable driver who demonstrated his value to our day when we found we had some extra time to explore another wine tasting. He recommended a very small grower with a tasting room on our way. Turned out this was our favorite! Great way to end our excursion! To be honest his value was also demonstrated when he brought...

I recently used Blue Ridge Wine Excursions for a bachelorette party for 13 girls, and everything went so well. The group was easy to work with to set everything up, and quick to respond to my questions. Our bus was comfortable and had a hookup for an iPod so we could listen to music on the way. Our driver Eddie... More

I hosted a Wine Tour Bachelorette Party with about 9 girls total using Blue Ridge Wine Excursions. Let me start by saying I have never planned any kind of outing/party like this before and if it wasn't for Blue Ride, I definitely wouldn't have been able to pull it off as easily as I did. I can't imagine using anyone... More

My husband and I had a 5 hour tour on a Sunday in March for my birthday. We had the best time! We found Blue Ridge Wine Excursions on Trip Advisor and our hotel also recommended them. It was very easy to set up our appointment online. Andrea and Eric emailed back and forth with me to set up the... More

My husband and I wanted to take advantage of the break in the cold weather so we decided to visit Charlottesville from the DC area on Saturday 3/15/14. I booked a private wine tour including lunch for the two of us on Thursday. I am so happy that I did because we had the most memorable experience. We got a... More

My sister and I wanted to do something special for our mother's 60th birthday. So we booked the Garden Path cottage at the Iris Inn and decided to do a wine tour of the region. Blue Ridge Wine Excursions came highly recommended by the Iris Inn so I gave them a call. Andrea was very good about getting back to... More

We had such a wonderful experience with our driver, JC. He was super knowledgeable about the wineries we visited and was really nice (and dealt with a bachelorette party admirably!). At the two vineyards where we were allowed to bring our own picnic, he unloaded the car and helped set up, really going above and beyond what we were expecting... More

We had a great experience with Andrea and our driver, Rick. We called at the very last minute to arrange a brewery and winery tour for 8 people. Andrea was professional and efficient, getting everything set up within mere minutes. Rick showed up as soon as possible, was attentive, friendly, and polite. He got us to where we were going...

Andrea was very helpful in setting up our tour even though it was very last minute. We were concerned with being able to get lunch on our tour and she assured us that our guide would give us a few options on our tour. She confirmed our appointment and let us know who our tour guide would be so we... More

Our interest was beyond tasting the wine. We wanted to learn about the wine making process and the soil in VA. Our guide,Bit, was good source for all kind of information . He did not only know about the wine but also the history of the vineyards. The most important thing is that he did not act as a salesman... More
