Highly Deserved High Marks for Wisdom Oak Winery
Aug 2021
I was wow-ed by their cabernet franc as it was so "earthy" in flavor. Even when we sat outside in an August mid-afternoon, it was such a pleasure to taste it and the other wines. Same for their port wine. The vidal blanc was my next favorite, with an almost creaminess about it even with its peachy citrusy essence. We were so warmly welcomed and treated by their host Kailey. Another staffer also came by to explain their crushing of the grapes they were in the middle of doing. We had met their owner, Jason, the day before while he was harvesting chardonnay grapes at the nearby Woodville Bed & Breakfast where we were staying, where he took time to tell us a little about his winemaking and his port. They had several friendly and quiet dogs walking around the winery, making it such a homey place to enjoy. The selt-guided (covid times) tasting consists of them bringing to your table the samples in little bottles, and you pouring them into the glass they give you. Nice!

Great winery, you'll need a drink after driving in.
Aug 2021 • Couples
The only con here is the single lane, public gravel road with no shoulder most of the mile+ way in. I know the winery has nothing to do with it, but in a low sports car, we definitely wanted a drink after arriving. I would recommend visiting during the week as we did.

Joking aside, we ordered a flight when we arrived and Kelsey was fantastic. We talked to her for what seemed like hours about the wines and we sampled many they had. She also gave great recommendations on where to eat in town. I think the 2020 Rosewood was my favorite! Never had a rose made from Petit Verdot, but it was great! I also enjoyed their whites.. We'll be back!

Very accomodating
Jun 2021
We recently visited this winery for my 60th birthday. The original winery we were going to would not let us bring in our own food or coolers. We were having a catered lunch. Wisdom Oak not only accommodated us, but they set up picnic tables and had tents covering the tables. We had such a fantastic time! Their wines were so good, we ended up buying a case for our family! It was a beautiful day!

It was such a pleasure to host your group and y'all were very generous with us as well. I am so glad Morgan (caterer) gave us a call to make the introduction. Thank you again for being a great group!

Favorite Winery of our Tour
Jun 2021
We visited Wisdom Oak Winery for a recent bachelorette party. The owner was very helpful and responsive when trying to make a reservation and accepted our large group (not many places would take a group our size or guarentee us a space). We visited on a Saturday and they had a big group of lawn chairs available for us to use under a shaded Oak tree. The entire group loved the laid back vibe and ability to just sit comfortably and converse. Since we wanted to see a few wineries, we only stayed for about an hour but we were able to purchase a few bottles to do our own tastings. As we were leaving to head out to the next winery, a staff member ran out to our bus with 4 bottles of wine as a gift. Definitely worth visiting--the staff is so kind and accommodating.

Though tastings weren't available, this owner made an effort to deliver wine to Woodville Bed & Breaksfasts for the guests!

Beautiful views, good wines
Jun 2020
This winery has beautiful views and offers a selection of very good wines. At the present time, its recommended that you make a reservation, because they want to make sure that their guests can social distance.

Pop-up Bridal Shower
Aug 2019 • Friends
Wisdom Oak Winery and owner Laura truly blew me away. I called a few months in advance to see if we could use their space for a bridal shower and she said yes, that she would allow it for free as long as we bought wine. She was SO easy to communicate with during the months leading up to the event and even kept in touch re: the weather the week beforehand and offering to move the event inside or move it to the next day if the weather didn’t cooperate. That was already a huge blessing. Thankfully the weather ended up being perfect. What I wasn’t expecting was 1) The grounds to be so beautiful that I almost cried when I pulled up on the dirt road. The road to get there takes you through canopy of trees and when you’re finally there you truly feel like you reached a slice of heaven! 2) The wines were some of the best I’ve had, and 3) Laura was truly an angel. She went above and beyond to help me make this night one to remember, making multiple trips back and forth to bring me water and supplies I forgot, and even offering to help me decorate and blow up balloons. I was astounded at her hospitality. Thanks to her, it was a night we will always remember. I can’t wait to go back with my husband and dogs next time we are in the area! Thank you, Laura!!! You are a special human being and your winery is heaven on Earth.

Great hidden gem at the foothills of the mountains
Nov 2018 • Friends
Have been here several times and always a great visit. The wines are very good and I especially like their Tinto, a port style wine, it's delicious and I buy a bottle each time I visit. Staff is knowledgeable and friendly and you can sit inside or outside on the patio.

Off the beaten path
Mar 2019 • Friends
The wines were very good. It is definitely off the beaten path and the road to get back to the winery is one lane. It is very pretty once you get there. It is a very small winery but the wines are good and the staff is friendly. If you are looking for a truely family owned and operated small scale winery this is the place to visit.

Hopping Charlottesville Wine Country
Mar 2019 • Friends
We visited Wisdom Oak in a swing through the wine country looking for some new ones. This is a rustic little gem! The road in makes you wonder but press on. The wines are pleasant- Sauvignon Blanc was my fave but also local cheeses. It’s is nestled in the hills and just beautiful. The owners are a charming couple full of good stories and enthusiasm for their trade. Take your basket, grab a bottle of wine and enjoy sundown!
