We had been here before, and decided to come back for a visit. It was good enough that we decided to stop in for lunch on both days of our recent visit. The open ceiling in their great room/tasting area gives a very spacious feel. They have floor to ceiling windows in the back which affords a beautiful scenic view.... More

Someone beat me to the title undewhelmed, oh well. This was our last stop on our wine outing and we were excited as this was the only one that was open till 8 on a Friday. I was excited as l heard who the owners were but this is probably the reason it seems to be run like a corporation... More

We've visited a good number of wineries in Virginia and were excited to visit Early Mountain as admirers of the Cases. However we were sorely disappointed in our visit. The property is beautiful but prices and service have much to be desired. Tastings and food were overpriced compared with other wineries in the area. It was very crowded the afternoon... More

My wife and came across this winery on a drive from our B&B. It is a stunning building with wines to match. They have plenty of seating inside and out. We didn't try any of the food but it smelled incredible. The wines were very good with the whites edging the reds on flavor.

We stopped on our way to Standardsville and it was a "family event" with Santa. Great ambiance, lots of activity and fireplaces, etc. However, the cost of the tasting was too much and we didn't even get a glass! We had a small snack with cheese and that was expensive too. Not sure we agreed with having so many children... More

While on a weekend getaway in October we came here 3 different times. The property is beautiful, the wines are really nice and the food was good. Limited menu but just good enough to snack on while tasting. I loved how relaxed it is. You can taste at a counter or in the lounge area and they usually have some... More

For three years in a row, my best friend from high school and I rendezvous for a fall weekend in Charlottesville, VA, where we traipse from winery to winery, enjoying the country vistas, fall foliage, interesting architecture variations of the tasting rooms, the varied settings in valleys and on mountains, the different vibes -- as well as the wines! It's... More

This is a jewel in the Madison , VA area. Beautiful building, good parking and the staff is superb. Welcoming does not begin to cover our reception, I felt like they had been waiting just for me. Wanted to stay for some food, which smelled wonderful. But had the dog in the car so didn't stay too long. There is... More

Took forever to get service. When the lady finally came it took forever for her to bring our drinks and then another lifetime to come take a food order. I can under stand this on a busy day, but it was kind of slow when we were there.

This is one of the prettiest tasting rooms in Virginia. They do tastings of their own wine and other wines from around the state. They also serve food and flights of wine inside or out on their veranda. The staff is excellent and the wine is good. It would be a fantastic place to have a wedding reception.
