A pleasant drive on a Sunday from Charlottesville. The tasting room/restaurant is large, imposing, and quite attractive. We were offered the choice of a tasting or lunch and opted for the latter. The menu offered a choice of sandwiches, salads, and Charcuterie and cheese boards. The restaurant specializes in locally grown produce . We opted for a Charcuterie and cheese... More

Stopped at Early Mountain Vineyards to see the changes that had occurred since we were last there, when it was under another name and ownership. The facilities are well designed and located in a beautiful setting, but our experience was very disappointing. We went up to the tasting bar and after several minutes, a young lady said she would be... More

I have discussed your comments with our tasting room team so we can provide better service moving forward. We want the experience at Early Mountain to be exceptional and it crushes us that we fell short of that on your visit.... More

I don't understand how I haven't heard more about this vineyard. Their wine was fantastic (I like drier, not sweet), the grounds were beautiful, and the building was spectacular. Both the Reds and the whites held their own. Will definitely go back.

Early Mountain is a beautiful winery that is very welcoming. It's wine club is a great deal considering it is free to join. Their wines are very good but what I like the most is that they have other Virginia wines for purchase. Some wineries offerings just aren't that good but you are forced to drink their proprietary vino. Early... More

Went to Early Mountain this weekend for a Bluegrass concert. What a beautiful winery and what a disappointment. We were surprised there were not more people there, they have a beautiful outdoor area with lots of seating and there were seats available for the concert. We headed for the wine and found a Virginia Brut that was not made at... More

We wanted to go to Early Mountain around Thanksgiving of last year but unfortunately they didn't open that day due to snow. So, when I headed back to Virginia in July, this was definitely on the top of our list of vineyards to visit. I was not a bit disappointed in our visit. The vineyard is just as gorgeous in... More

They have others wines in addition to their own and all of the wines are pleasant. Their venue is amazing bc you can order cheeseboards and light food and spend an afternoon outdoors, under a porch, or inside their huge area. I would go back from Northern VA to play cards or talk and drink a couple of bottles in... More

Our party of 4 enjoyed lunch of cheese and bread and flights for the table on the patio. Beautiful setting outside; the indoor table were somewhat loud. Solo musician was very good. Our server was very knowledgeable of the items on the menu, both food and wine. You can't miss the gorgeous steel whirligig lawn ornaments in the shape of... More

My husband and I usually stop here on our way to our weekend home in Charlottesville. We manage to meet new people every time we go there. We have been to several of their events and they are all good. The only down side is that the dogs are no longer allowed on the porch. (VA Rules)
