I recently planned a wine tasting day trip for a group of 12 friends. We are all UVA grads and familiar with the area and were getting together in Charlottesville to catch up. Our driver, Bergen, was fantastic and helpful. He kept us on track but wasn't in the way. The Starcraft bus was the perfect vehicle for our group.... More

We really enjoyed our private wine tour. I know they do groups of all sizes; ours group was just my husband and me, in a posh Mercedes sedan. Our driver/guide was warm, friendly, and charming; he knew just the right wineries that would have wines to fit our preferences, kept us entertained with stories about local history along the way,...

I selected Blue Ridge Wine Excursions for my 30th birthday celebration and the experience greatly exceeded my expectations! If you're looking for a great girls weekend trip, this is definitely it. J.C. our tour guide was great. He was knowledgeable and helped us select some awesome wineries that I would not have otherwise known about. My friends and I plan... More

We used Blue Ridge Wine Excursions for a five hour wine tour for a group of women celebrating a bride-to-be. We visited two wineries in the Central Virginia region and I cannot say enough positive things about our day. I have been on other wine tours, and Blue Ridge Wine Excursions was hands down the best one I've been to.... More

My sister, mother and I had a fantastic wine tour with Andrea this past weekend. She was knowledgable about everywhere we were going and really seemed to take our preferences as far as wine taste and desire for beautiful scenery into account. We had never done anything like this before and are so glad we did. We will definitely be... More

Seven friends toured two wineries on 151 in the Escalade. Our driver was early, friendly, professional, and flexible. We had a great time. I would use them again and would recommend them to anyone wanting a fun, stress-free tour.

My girlfriends & I wanted a weekend getaway to include a wine tour and a driver! We were picked up promptly by Darius and the entire experience was FABULOUS! He recommended a winery that wasn't on our original list of stops that turned out to be our favorite. He was so friendly and helpful and our day was filled with... More

This past weekend, I organized a wine tour for my fiancé, his sisters and their husbands. As this was the first Charlottesville winery experience for 4/6 of the group, I wanted to make sure everyone had a great first impression! After reading several reviews online, and speaking to Eric on the phone, I knew that Blue Ridge Wine Excursions was... More

My wife and I were celebrating the start of my new job with a short getaway from DC to Charlottesville, and this wine tour was one of the main events. Needless to say, we were not disappointed and this company exceeded our expectations. Bit, our guide, was awesome and his knowledge of the area and its history was quite rich.... More

Myself and 5 girlfriends had Chris and the Escalade for our wine excursion. It was AWESOME! Chris was early to pick us up and was SUPER nice. First class all day. I would 100% use this service again!
