We stopped in for a tasting on a Wednesday afternoon after lunch at Salt Artisan Market. Very beautiful grounds with lots of outdoor seating. We sampled 10 wines for $10, which included a nice wine glass for a souvenir. We enjoyed all the dry whites and reds and had a lovely conversation with the person conducting our tasting. We selected... More

After our tour of Monticello and Ash Lawn-Highlands, we treated ourselves to the wine tasting at Jefferson Vinyards. The price is very reasonable, the tour informative, and the staff very patient and kind: we had lots of questions! We especially loved the Viognier and the Meritage. In fact, we went back a second time and ordered a case of Viognier... More

I recently went on a wine tour with Wish Wish and this vineyard was the first stop. They were more liberal than the other vineyards when it comes to wine tastings as they gave you 2 big sips of each wine rather than just one like the other wineries. The tasting building was nice and well stocked and the people... More

I have done my fair share of wine tastings. Jefferson Vineyards has to be one of my favorites, if not at the top of the list. The customer service was excellent. The lady that helped us was funny and attentive. We went at a busy time and were paired with another couple. While many times this leads to an awkward... More

My wife and I were seeking a wine tasting experience that would include a nice scenic view as well as a decent glass of wine. On both counts the Jefferson Vineyards disappoints. Basically it was pricy, you stand up to the bar, average wine, and you may keep the glasses which look ok. Would not go again and watch out... More

Dear Paul T. Thank you for your visit and feedback. We will be glad to enhance our existing markings on our small speed bumps and will do so this month. It is a pity that your visit was on a day with poor weather. Our views to Carter’s Mountain and Montalto are really nice, especially in late fall, when the... More

The tasting is a bit pricey but you get to keep the glasses which are quite nice. You'll love this wine and can just picture Thomas Jefferson himself wandering amongst the grape vines.

I was very excited to see this vineyard as it was called the Jefferson vineyard. The young lady that helped us was very nice and the wines were good. We had a good experience and would return again if in the area. The outside was pretty but wasn't what I had expected. If in the area stop by.

I had been to the winery several times and bought many bottles of wine. I just went again in August 2014 and learned how little they thought of their customers. I was hoping to purchase a specific wine and was told that the were out of it but, the sales person let me know she had 5 botttles at home... More

Jefferson Vineyards was a find for my husband and myself many years ago. Now, we go there every time we visit Charlottesville! Even when we want to branch out and try new vineyards, we find ourselves returning. The wine is always excellent, service is wonderful -- the employees doing the tasting pours always know a lot about both the wines... More

We have had their chardonnay a couple of time at other places before we finally got a chance come visit the vineyard. The staff was very friendly and made good suggestions of what we might like based on what we said we did like. They have a quaint tasting room with large, ample grounds for your family and pets.
