Our recent wine tour with Erika was nothing short of fabulous! Erika is so knowledgeable and informative. Each winery we visited had a different appeal and we loved them all! We felt so pampered by the attention to all the details of our tour. The cheese/fruit plate was exquisite and enhanced by the local offerings included therein.
We can't thank Erika enough for a wonderful afternoon and we highly recommend her tour to anyone who wants a relaxing, enjoyable, pampering and informative wine tour experience!

My husband and I booked a wine tour with Appellation for our anniversary getaway weekend. It was amazing, informative and very relaxing. Erika was the BEST guide- so attentive, professional and thoughtful. She helped us know the best order to taste the wines, explained the different grapes, and always restocked us with cold water throughout the tour. The most decadent part of our tour was the cheese, fruit and chocolate platter at the second stop. It was extravagant and delicious! We loved the chocolate so much she even made time to take us to the store where she buys it so we could purchase some to take home. She also took photos at each stop that she emailed us as a keepsake! Book with Erika if you’re looking for a personalized, professional and detail-oriented fabulous time!

My wife and I had a great time on the wine tour with Erika. The pick up and drop off at our B&B was a really nice touch. She also took us to 4 different wineries and did a wonderful job explaining to us the differences in how each of the wineries made their wine. We really enjoyed the wine and the experience of getting to try similar wines from different places all in the same day.

I also really recommend doing the lunch upgrade. Our sandwiches and cheeseboard were delicious and went great with the wine we had as well.

Would highly recommend Monticello Appellation Wine Tours! We had an absolutely wonderful day with Erika as our guide. She picked 3 very wonderful wineries for us to enjoy. I know its hard during the pandemic for being out socially and for business to stay open. She helped us every step of the way on choosing tastings and grabbing everything for us. I believe she went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable and make everything easy breezy. I would also recommend getting the lunch option. The sandwiches were amazing and the spread was absolutely beautiful. Erika brought actual place settings for us, no plastic or paperware. She even brought wine glasses for us to use during our tastings, since most places served the tastings in plastic cups because of the corona virus. She also brought a professional camera and snapped a few photos at each winery and sent them to us to download. Great memories were made on our trip and now we have photos to remember the experience.

We had a great wine tour with Erika. Our tour was on a Monday so she planned a tour of 3 wineries that are normally too busy on the weekends. She provided lunch, cheese/crackers and dessert plus nice drinkware to use in lieu of the covid-safe plastic. She also took great photos at the wineries and made us feel very safe throughout the day. Definitely recommend!

We had a great time with our guide Erika. We visited four wineries and opted for the lunch option at one of the stops, lunch was excellent. Erika was a wealth of knowledge on wine, the local wineries, and Charlottesville. If you are in the area I would highly recommend a tour with Monticello Appellation Wine Tours.

Our wine tour with Erika was outstanding! From the pick up at our B&B, information about wine and the region, visits to 3 beautiful wineries, pictures along the way and so much more. I highly recommend adding the lunch option. The lunch was amazing. Sandwiches (many choices) from one place, amazing cheeseball from another and a delicious dessert from somewhere else. The day after our tour, we went to some wineries on our own and I wished we had booked a second day with Erika - so worth it!

This was our first ever wine tour. Erika is a great guide. She is very knowledgeable and we learned so much from her. She paid attention to details to make it an more enjoyable experience. The lunch was amazing, the pictures she took and sent were a special touch. It was a wonderful trip. We definitely would recommend this company and we would absolutely do it again !

We had such a wonderful day using Monticello Wine Tours. They pick you up at your location, take you to 3 amazing, scenic wineries and at the second winery you enjoy a fabulous cheese, fruit, cracker and chocolate tray! Waters are provided, they reserve tables and give you all the information you need! Our driver drove a little fast which made me a little nauseous, but it definitely saves time! I know they just want you to get the most out of your day. They also take photos for you throughout the day and then e-mail them to you! We would definitely book with them again.

The wine tour was that we took was outstanding. The planning from Erika was so meticulous. She was very knowledgeable of the wine and Charlottesville as a whole. She even went out of her way to assist us in getting dinner reservations to a fabulous “pop-up” restaurant. We would definitely tour with this company again.
