We visited Keswick on a wine weekend and were impressed enough that we joined their wine club. As are many of the wineries east of Charlottesville, this winery is dog friendly. This makes our puppy happy as she likes to travel. We collect our quarterly wine selections at the winery which gives us the opportunity to taste the latest wines.... More

Keswick is a nice setting to enjoy wine. The wine tasting offered samples of 8 wines from a very knowledgeable pourer. She answered any and all of our questions. It was a nice surprise to find out that one of our tasting was complementary with a purchase of wine. I would recommend this vineyard to friends and will definitely return... More

The title says it all but I really don't know how they think they are making good wine at this place as l beg to differ. I enjoyed the stories by our host who was very pleasant and seemed very knowledgeable but apart from that not much else. It's another place that has $8 tastings with but and that's was... More

I wish I could explain why our experience was so different from that of other reviewers. We visited multiple wineries that day and tasted many very good wines. We once lived in Virginia, and Keswick was a long-time favorite whose wine club we almost joined. But these wines were simply not very good on the whole, and those that were... More

My favorite winery because my taster was a Civil War Buff, like me, and a former reenactor. Loved talking to his knowledgeable and friendly gentleman. Wines were good too and I loved paring the sweet wine with a chunk of chocolate and a butter wafer cookie. Tannins working their magic! The grounds were beautiful and dog friendly. Came away with...

The wine is made well. The people there are very friendly. The outside is beautiful, and has places to sit and enjoy the area....even pets allowed! The inside where we do the tasting is lovely also! Steven is a wonderful wine maker, and friendly man. We've been there a couple years ago before because we live in another state, and... More

By far my favorite tasting of this trip - it was on our list to visit, but once I went to their website and watched the video (you have to do this!!) I made it the first stop of the day. It's even better in person! You drive in and pass a gorgeous water area by the vineyard itself, complete... More

We had one of our best sundays at Keswick Vineyards! The owner gave us an informative tour of his winery. He ensured we taste every wine and detailed us right from it's origin to it's production. Of all the vineyards we've been so far, Keswick definitely is a wonderful experience. The porch swing overlooked the gorgeous wines and the lake... More

My daughter just got married at Keswick and I can not say enough good things about our experience. From day one we felt like we were home because the people were so warm and friendly.
