“A quick tour”
Reviewed October 22, 2011

A quick tour and worth the trip. We visited in october, so the gardens were past their peak. Next visit will be in Spring/Summer so we can enjoy the flower/vegetable gardens.

“nice vineyard”
Reviewed July 17, 2011

I agree with the other posters -- this is a nice spot to sample some high quality Virginia wines. The $5 tasting fee was worth it and, if it's possible to remember, you can bring your glass back with you for free tastings.

I was surprised by the high quality of the wines. A little pricey by int'l standards (hard to get great value in Virginia wines), but compare favorably to their local competitors.

And, not surprisingly, the winery had the best "soundtrack" I've ever heard in a tasting room!

“Nice Spot”
Reviewed July 10, 2011

Enjoyed Blenheim. Very mellow place, only a few wines compared to the other wineries. But, would definitely go again.

“A Wonderful Wine Tasting Experience - Both Times!!!”
Reviewed June 19, 2011

My wife and I visited Blenheim twice within a 6 week period in April and May while visiting our daughter at UVA. Both visits our experience was wonderful. They have a beautiful A-Frame building with a tasting area towards the back. Behind the twin tasting bars are large glass windows opening to an expansive deck with tables and a beautiful view of the vines and rolling hills.

Both times we had great service that explained each wine with a generous pour and a relaxed pace. Also the wines are wonderful and we bought a total of a case to enjoy at home.

This is by far one of the best wine tasting experiences we have had in VA. The souvenir glass remains one of my wife's favorites. Skip the rushed overrated wines at Jefferson and visit Blenheim.

“Favorite Winery in Charlottesville Area”
Reviewed May 15, 2011

This winery is beautiful and with a very friendly staff. The dog is precious. We had a great time and like our lovely souvenir wine glasses. Our fave was the Voignier.
