“a possibilty that lacks charm”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2013

The wine is good, no question about it but the tasting room is primitive and rudely staffed. Very rudely and inadequately staffed! The view has lovely potential but you are pretty much treated with little regard, there is nothing available for purchase and we have been informed that the property owners are going to move the tasting site so that will nix the great view. My question is what are they hoping for and how do they expect to appeal to seasoned wine consumers? Why go here when just a few miles away there are at least 7 other lovely and gracious wineries with equally delicious choices. Just a thought...why waste the day?

“We Love Tasting at Grace Estate Winery!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2013

We so enjoy tasting at Grace Estate Winery we hesitate to write a review as the crowds will start to discover it! The wines are wonderful - a great example of what the Charlottesville area has to offer. There are outside tables with umbrellas for picnics and beautiful sweeping vineyards for great photos.

“And In The Beginning . . .”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2013 via mobile

If you want to get an idea of how the VA wine industry began, go to Grace. Like others in the area, Grace began as a grower and then got into winemaking. The tasting room is at the starting level. You can sign your name on the bar. Grace has one of the top winemakers in the region, Jake B. He was at Pollock. This is an example of VA winemaking at its finest. If you are lucky enough to have Judi serve you, it will be an experience you won't forget.
