My wife and I had the great pleasure to discover this great winery. The people were very welcoming and very informative. As we had a long drive ahead we only tasted the mostly stainless fermented Chardonnay which had a very nice light-yellow green color and vibrant aromas of pear and apple. The current tasting facility is very nice but they... More

Visited here on Valentine's Day; it was crowded but we only waited five minutes for a tasting. For $5.00, you get to try five wines; the Chardonnay was very good; not very oaky. But the best was the Painted Red, a blend that was so good! A bit pricey, but oh so good! Small tasting bar, but very good service.

Upon driving up, the grounds look like a nicely landscaped barn/farm. But upon walking through the outside seating areas to the tasting room and entering through its huge doors, we were amazed by the BEAUTIFUL timber frame constructed building! The huge windows out of the back side were also amazing and let you have nice views of the valley out... More

We want went with a group of friends and had a lovely time. The tasting room is beautiful with a wonderful view out back. The staff were friendly and knowledgable. The wines were pretty good. They allow outside food here, but also have some you can purchase if you come empty handed. If we are in his area again, we... More

....Dave Matthews family owned winery....bring a picnic lunch, peruse their wines and drink in the view. Nice wooden building that we discovered was designed by the owner. A pleasant break from the Charlottesville sights. We had a good pourer that really knew his stuff!

The wines here are good -- we almost always pick up a bottle or two when we visit. And pours are generous. But the facility is the star -- it is gorgeous, constructed of wood, designed to be eco-friendly, and filled with natural light. And the view... I wish I had taken a picture to post. That kind of view... More

We had a great time here thanks to the staff member we were lucky enough to get and the time of day we arrived allowed for plenty of quality time with him. Aside from enjoying virtually all the wines, the most memorable aspect was playing the wine identification game after the tasting and being allowed to bring our cheese, etc.... More

Last Saturday was my boyfriend's birthday. We had planned for about 4 months to come to Charlottesville and do some wine tasting. We are from the Upstate NY area. We built our trip around being able to come to "Dave's winery." We are both huge Dave Matthew fans and we had been fortunate enough to have someone gift us with... More

We loved our visit to Blenheim. It was relaxing and very beautiful. We liked the wines so much we bought a case. The building is beautiful and I love the way you can see down to the first floor. We sat on the deck with some wine and cheese. Beautiful day.
