Wines were the best in this area...top notch. Server was very kind and helpful and friendly. Don't miss this winery if in the area, East side of Charlottesville, VA. Great views of the vineyard and the mountains. I've been to over 25 wineries in Virginia, this rates in my top 5.

We were in Charlottesville for my niece's wedding and the wedding venue that had been chosen was the Keswick Vineyards, located outside of town. When we arrived for the ceremony and reception, we were stunned to see the beauty of the location and grounds. The ceremony itself was performed beyond the fountain at the edge of the vineyard and the... More

The winery has decent wines and a nice tasting room, and it does reside in a pretty idyllic setting where you can sit outside and enjoy your purchases. Our server (who may have been the owner, not sure) spent a bit too much time trying to push us into their wine club and regaling us with stories of how awesome... More

Thank you so much for your visit and for taking the time to write a review! It would not have been the owner serving you, but we do have several wine club members who enjoy Keswick so much that they started working for us in our tasting room. It was likely one of them serving you and, being members themselves,... More

We went out to Keswick on a recent trip after going to Burnley (SKIP IT) and Barboursville (Average). It was a nice place, with decent wines. The lady who served the wine was very knowledgeable about the wines......although she did tend to push the wine club membership with every other sentence!! As other folks have mentioned, you're only going to... More

We were in the area for the Marine Corps Historic Half Marathon and took the afternoon to visit wineries. We stopped here because our daughter and son in law tried and enjoyed a bottle of their wine recently. It was the best stop on our tour by far! The scenery was spectacular- as was the opportunity to lunch outside with... More

Our experience at Keswick was totally different from the last two reviewers and was the best of the six wineries that we visited in the area. We had personal attention from a gracious and very knowledgeable hostess who poured generous samples of all their wines and discussed each of them with us. The winemaker even came out and offered us... More

Keswick Vineyards was our first stop on a recent wine tasting weekend. The tasting fee of $5 bought us sips (and I do mean sips) of eight wines. The samples provided at Keswick were, by far, the smallest I've had at any Virginia winery. All of the wines were quite drinkable, but none really stood out. The winery is quite... More

Nice idyllic setting - a kind lady served us at the tasting room. She talked knowledgeably about the history of the vineyard. BUT, she did not wipe the counter or remove the trash from previous customers, forgot to serve us crackers, and when we asked, gave us the previous customers' leftovers, she actually pulled out a dirty napkin from the...

I stopped at this winery on my way home from traveling for the weekend. I arrived at 4:50pm, 10 minutes before closing. The tasting room had clearly already been cleaned. However it was not an issue. They were more than happy to serve me. Unfortunately I have been to establishments where that is not the case. The wine was great.... More
