Two couples - one from Indiana and one from California (wine country) - visited Charlottesville on our way to DC for a week of meetings. King Family Vineyard is one of those gems we find occasionally when we just start looking around and asking people for advice. We visited on a Friday afternoon in early June, squeezing this impromptu visit into our schedule. They weren't busy and it was close to closing. Because they had an evening wedding we were asked to leave a little early, which was disappointing. But not before we had a fun wine tasting and were able to relax for a brief while on the patio enjoying a bottle of Crose', some snacks, conversation with friends and the nice view of the polo grounds and the hills.
We do not usually care for Rose' wine but this one is dry and darn good. We also gravitated to the Viognier, Merlot and Meritage so we bought a case to have shipped home. They were very accommodating and even shipped our wine glasses for us. Nice glasses, too...seem, which seemed a little nicer than most. Besides, I like the logo.
KFV did a nice job following up on the shipment. They had a question and called me just to make sure they were doing the right thing.
Suggest you allow yourself plenty of time to select a glass or bottle of your favorite new King Family wine and relax on the patio while enjoying the surroundings.
