My wife and I were visiting the Charlottesville area for our anniversary and decided on a one day wine tour with Blue Ridge Wine Excursions. We could not have been happier with our decision. Our driver, Bit, was very knowledgeable of the local wineries and based on the type of wine we preferred (bigger reds, in our case), he chose a handful of different vineyards for us to visit. Being that he visits these wineries frequently and knows the owners and staff, he was even able to get us a few tastes of wines that were not on the tasting list, which we greatly appreciated. We ended up going home with over a case of wine, so we certainly enjoyed the vineyards he chose for us. We would highly recommend their services for anyone looking for a fun day of wine tasting in the Blue Ridge mountains.

We had a great time. Michael was our driver and was very knowledgeable. He helped us but wasn't overbearing. I would definitely recommend them!!!

My boyfriend and I took a Winery Tour with Blue Ridge Wine Excursions on May 4th to celebrate our anniversary. Our tour guide was Bit and he was absolutely fantastic! Knowledgeable, helpful and nice without being intrusive, and since he knew the people at every winery we went to, he was able to get us to the front of lines and even some special tastings that weren't part of the normal list. We were able to completely relax and enjoy this world-class experience! Bit and Andrea even worked together during the afternoon to adjust our drop off so that we could enjoy dinner in downtown Charlottesville. All in all, we could not have asked for a better experience, from first contact and planning to the actual day of. Awesome experience!

We did our winery tour on April 30. It was a very enjoyable experience, and J.C. was a great driver and tour guide. Had we tried to do a vineyard tour on our own, we'd undoubtedly have been stuck in construction traffic on the main roads, but he knew the alternate routes and back roads so well that we got around all day with no problems, plus we got to drive through some countryside we'd never have seen otherwise. Of course had I been driving it would have been necessary to severely limit my wine tasting, but with a professional handling the driving and navigation I could sample as many wines as I liked with no worries. We bought a couple of bottles at each winery, and J.C. very kindly helped us carry them into our inn when he dropped us off. The antipasto plate lunch provided was very good, and the entire day was very relaxing and fun. We'd recommend Blue Ridge Wine Excursions to anyone looking for a guided winery tour in the Charlottesville area.

From Andrea and the staff helping to corridinate the details of our day to Bergen our driver, we could not have asked for better service. They went above and beyond! We will defintely use you again on our return trip!
