Way over hyped and over priced. Better wines around the corner.
My wife and I stopped at Jefferson Vineyards on Mothers Day while visiting our daughter. We have visited numerous wineries throughout Virginia and are not unfamiliar with the typical wine tasting experience. I had heard from others to avoid a stop at Jefferson Vineyards, but my wife wanted to stop and give it a chance.
The wine tasting fee was $10 per person with a plain (not personalized for Jefferson) "Reidel" glass thrown in to keep. Other vineyards' fees were less AND you received a personalized glass. There were about 8 wines to taste. Our "server" was an immature ditzy young woman who wanted nothing more than to finish the session as quickly as possible. To this end, each pour was the smallest I have ever received (less than a sip).
I really did not find one wine that deserved their self-promoted buzz. Some were just.....bad. All were overpriced compared to other Virginia wines.
I would suggest going to some of the other wineries in the area and skipping this one. Go to Blenheim or Barboursville for great wines, bigger pours, relaxed pace, and friendly, knowledgeable people.
