This was our second stop of a full day of planned winery visits. I was the DD so I was limited to just one taste while the rest of my group did the full list. The staff was excellent and realizing I was only going to have one taste gave me the taste of my choice free of charge. That... More

As you plan your itinerary across Charlottesville, end your wine route at Trump. Amazing scenery, best ambiance of the local wineries, great/informed staff, and fantastic sparkling wines. We sat outside on the deck area, and got CRU'd for many hours. Was a perfect end to our fun day.

My husband and i were taking a vacation in early January, but also had some business planning to do. We decided to visit The Trump Winery and am so glad we did. It was not crowded when we arrived, but it soon became a wait. Although there was a wait, our hostess did not rush us. She was very personable... More

My husband and I had the privilege of visiting the Trump winery and, as it had recently snowed and was early in the morning, the pleasure of meeting Chris, a native Californian. He was by far the greatest host we have had at any winery in the area. He was knowledgeable, funny, and informative. Definitely a breath of fresh air... More

We loved everything about this place. We had tasted the wine, was so wonderful. The staff was great in answering all our questions. The place had a very warm feel to it. We sat in a little nook with a bench by the fireplace. It has a very romantic setting for couples. We had the place to ourselves. When we... More

I find Virginia Wines to be average at best and Trump did not prove me wrong. The tasting room itself is very nice and the girl did a great job taking her time with us since it was very crowded. We appreciated her taking her time and not rushing us even though there was a crowd waiting to take the... More

The setting of the vineyard and tasting room is quite beautiful. Clean, warm and inviting and the staff was very friendly with wonderful expertise. We were not rushed through a tasting like at other vineyards in the area which added significantly to the experience. The wines are top notch award winning wines. I only wish we had stuck around and... More

The wines are vertually the same as under the Kluge brand and the basic building is the same, but what a difference in the attitude of the staff. Before they just gave you a few glasses and list and pencil. Now it's like it should be, much more first class. The location and view are outstanding, as well are the... More

Trump does not need my accolades, but since his company purchased what was the Kluge winery near Charlottesville the entire operation appears to be better managed, Their wines are good, but the high quality food is what really puts this winery above most others in Virginia. In fact, most Virginia wineries that we have been to do not serve prepared... More

Had a wonderful date with my wife at the Trump Winery. The tasting room was very clean and the staff was great. Great informative tasting and cannot wait to come back in the Spring. We had the BLT and the Cheese tray and they were incredible. We both agree that this was the best BLT we have ever had! No... More
