My family has been to Trump several times, and we always have an exceptional experience. Our first visit was with trepidation, mostly due to the Trump name replacing that of Kluge. But the new owners made several very smart decisions upon re-branding and re-opening several years ago -- tastings were less expensive, more still (non-sparkling) wines were produced, and the...

This was my second vist to Trump winery tasting room. It is, so far, my favorite winery in this area. Their Cru is my absolute favorite and I bought enough to last several months. The staff is wonderful!

Mr Trump would be gratified to know that regardless of the wines, the staff (and we interacted with 3) were welcoming, friendly, engaging and knowledgeable--which we did experience at other wineries but not all. They were also informative without succumbing to condescending "wine speak" too much. We enjoyed the wines (and bought a few), the facility is elegant and they... More

Out of all the wineries we visited in Virginia, this was our favorite by far. All the wines were excellent. We found room at the tasting bar quickly. Our server, Sean, really made the experience for us. He was very personable and nice, and gave us the best customer service that we found in Virginia. That made the difference of... More

There are many wonderful things to say about this winery and we have visited many times through the years. Compared to other Virginia wineries, this property is very good. The wine is the best is this region. Go see it because it is a beautiful property. Fortunately there is a small menu for those who don't like to drink on... More

Hard to find tasting room due to a lack of signage. I ended up driving quarter mile away to corporate headquarters and was given directions to tasting room, which is not so much a room as a nice picnic grounds lunch place. Beautiful grounds with breathtaking views of Virginia mountains. Wife and I loved the cheese plate but alas the... More

The Trump Winery is know for their sparkling wines and they did not disappoint. Our wine expert was very personable and spent time with us explaining each tasting and even added a few wines that were not on the list. What surprised me was the Rose Sparkling Wine. The aroma was pleasent and the taste was perfect. If you want... More

We stopped here first on our three stop wine tour. We were immediately greeted and shown into our own private room that was already set up for our large group - about 15 people from 25-30. Our wine guide was Chris and he was great - super knowledgable about wine, very funny and patient with our group. We loved the... More

This was by far the best place we visited on our trip. We walked in with our group of 7 and were immediately greeted by a nice guy named Sean. Sean was friendly and knowledgeable and truly showed us a great time. We even joked that we were skeptical about coming to the winery because it is owned by Donald... More

We had a lovely weekend in the area and the weather was beautiful. Our stop at Trump was really nice. The wines are good - the sparkling ones are best. The tasting was busy but didn't feel as much like a cattle call as some of the other local places like keswick & barboursville. We bought a bottle and then... More
