Really enjoyed that they have a great variety of sparkling wines. Only complaint was there were only two people helping with a room full of tasters so we had to wait a long time to taste & between each tasting. Good wines though.

Our visit was before Christmas and we specifically chose to stop in Charlottesville to visit this winery and others. We are frequent guests at other Trump properties around the country, and sadly the staff did not live up to Trump standards. Beautiful location, excellent wines, yummy food, but we felt rushed thru our tasting, no recommendations offered by staff to... More

Stopped here after hearing good things about the winery from another establishment. The place wreaks of high class but isn't snobby as you might expect from a name like Trump. The staff was friendly and informative which is always nice. The price of the tasting was $8 which is a bit steep, though you do get to keep your glass.... More

My wife and I recently visited for the first time over a weekend in Charlottesville. I'll confess to being initially skeptical, since management transitions can be challenging for any endeavor - even in the hands of someone as extraordinarily skilled and visionary as Mr. Trump - and perhaps moreso when dealing with delicately balanced traditions such as winemaking. However, skeptical... More

Nice location, just around the corner from Blenheim. The views while standing in the tasting room weren't stellar, but nice. They were quite busy, but it was a Saturday. We enjoyed the tasting, again my favorite was the Sparkling Rose.

My wife and I had visited Kluge several times over the past few years and were quite disappointed when it was closed last year. Eric Trump, and his staff, have completed a wonderful restoration. Very relaxing atmosphere, excellent wines complimented by great food, and a courteous, helpful staff. We will be back again next year to spend an enjoyable afternoon..

I just had a wonderful experience at TRUMP this weekend. We surprised one of our friends with a private birthday party/tasting and it could not have gone any better/smoother. The team there had everything set up when we arrived, ALL of the wine was amazing, and then we went outside and they brought us some DELICIOUS appetizers. Seriously the best... More

We visited Trump for the first time ever (had never been to Kluge) and were in love. The staff is super friendly and extremely knowledgeable. We had come for a "private" party, so to speak, and the tasting room was PACKED, but the staff was able to handle our large party, and the other guests, gracefully. The tasting was only... More

Had a great time! Great wine and food. Very knowledgable staff. We chose the outdoor tasting bar on the back patio for our experience. No extra charge for the bald eagle fly over!! This is a great destination for a date, weekend trip or meeting place for friends to get together after work. Make sure you come back for the... More

Fantastic atmosphere at the outside bar. The view is to die for at the edge of the property. I was not a fan of their CRU, but all and all I enjoyed the tasting.
