Owner description: King Family Vineyards is a family owned and operated winery located at the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Crozet, Virginia just fifteen minutes from Charlottesville. The winery specializes in the production of ultra-premium wines that showcase the remarkable quality and terroir of the Monticello AVA. Beginning with carefully selected estate grapes, winemaker Matthieu Finot creates wines inspired by the old world, but are uniquely expressive of Virginia. Our passion is the customer, our craft is the wine. "When you visit our winery, you are coming to our home. We hope that you enjoy the fruits of our labor as much as we enjoy sharing them with you." -The King Family

“Top wines! Wonderful people!”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

We love this place! King family wines made us firm believers in Virginia Wines. Their wines are exceptional and consistent. The tasting room experience is delightful, personal, and informative. They have ample grounds that are well manicured and perfect for a picnic. A must visit!

“King Family knows families!”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

What a great place to spend a Sunday afternoon! Great polo matches, fabulous wine and gorgeous location! In addition to picnic spots around the polo field, there is a spacious patio with umbrella tables, and picnic tables scattered hither and yon on the grounds. Lots of space for kidlets and woof woofs to roam! And if you're serious about your wine, the tasting room staff know their stuff and there are wines to suit every palate.

“Surrounding and atmosphere are a bonus”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

The wine was very good and the patio beautiful. The views were just spectacular. Bring your own picnic or just bread and cheese. You will want to linger. The weather was perfect which just added to the overall experience. Enjoyed many of their whites and the women pouring our tasting who not only knew her stuff but was interesting to talk to. Definitely stop here on your wine excursion. You will not be sorry.

“Great Vineyard”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

Mostly dry wines, very good ones. Had only one wine that was slightly sweet, I liked. They also have polo ponies and matches. The area was beautiful and the people were very friendly. Very easy to find, and they also had a terrace where you could sit and see the vineyard. Very nice.

“Absolutely my new favorite winery!”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

We were by there with a MINI Cooper owners group. I've been there before and enjoyed each trip. The wines are awesome. Not really a dry white or red wine fan, but I can drink every style they make. Love the "7" desert wine and the even more desert oriented "loriley" is fantastic, IF you like a very sweet wine. We had our own tasting and Tom was absolutely fantastic. He really knows his wine. Do not miss the if you're in the area.
