Went here with a bachelorette party, and reserved a private tasting. The gentleman who lead the tasting was knowledgeable and entertaining. Be sure to order the bread and cheese plate--it is HUGE (served our group of 7 with no issues), and so much better than what you get at other places.

We have visited this vineyard for years, prior to it being purchased by the Trump family. Always a treat and a beautiful place to visit. The staff was wonderful and fun, possibly students from Charlottesville? Very knowledgeable and enjoyed their job. They handled our eclectic group well. Wines are good, with the Cru being the all time fav. Very unique... More

I've gotten into wine tasting a lot latley. Of all the places I have been this has to be one of my favorites. The view was breathtaking, the tastes were great, and the people were fantastic. If, and by if I mean when, you go do a tasting then grab a glass of their Cru wine. You won't regret it!!!... More

Trump Winery should be a definite stop on your Charlottesville wine tour route. We visited on August 15th for a girls birthday trip, and received top service from the staff. Camille, one of the tasting room associates, is extremely knowledgeable and very personable! The scenery is beautiful and it's the perfect spot to enjoy a picnic!

Great place to have a peaceful evening and enjoyable time. Wine was fabulous but wait service was a little spotty here and there. Had to flag the waitress down a few times but overall the location is great and we will be back. While visiting we had a jet fly through giving us quite a show over the lake!

The service at Trump winery was great. Right when we entered through the door, someone was there to great us and we were taken into a small octagon stand to experience and almost private wine tasting. However, a group came in and joined us. We came all the way down from the D.C. area to try out Trump Winery. We... More

We very much looked forward to this stop and chose Trump because the phone customer service was so excellent. We asked in advance about doing a tasting and teaching our kids about wine, and they said "we are very family friendly and would love to have you!" To the contrary, when we arrived, the lady at the counter was very... More

As soon as you walk in, you are greeted with friendly faces and a wonderful area for tasting! The staff behind the bar are/were very knowledgeable of the wines we were tasting. We ended up buying 1/2 case to go! We went back a second time just to enjoy a glass of Viognier 2013 and a small pizza off of... More

We did a bus tour of four wineries, and Trump exceeded my expectations. The staff was friendly. The food was delicious (and not outrageously expensive), and the wine selection was pretty good for a newer winery. They have a delicious dessert wine that is aged in Jack Daniels barrels. The grounds were kept and beautiful.

My husband and I visited the winery on Aug. 12th. We had a good visit. We started off by going to the event area first, it was very beautiful. If I lived in the area I would surely consider having an event here. When we got to the tasting room, we were greeted right away. We enjoyed the tasting and... More
