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

My husband and I had a few hours to spend in the Charlottesville area and friends recommended Kind Family Vineyards in Crozet. The vineyard is located on a beautiful piece of property, has a very knowledgable staff, and a collection of delicious wines. We particularly enjoyed their Chardonnay and 7! 7 is great port-like wine and so delicious (I'm not generally a port drinker.) We loved the ambience and stayed awhile to enjoy a glass of wine and play a game of checkers in their inviting tasting room.

At any time of year, the King Family Vineyards is a great way to spend a few relaxing hours sharing great wine with friends and family. The view from the patio is fantastic, and in the summer there are polo matches as well as a view of a large pond that often hosts ducks, geese and occasionally a great blue heron. There is a lot of grass for kids to run around on while you sit and relax. In cooler weather the windows in the tasting room room offer an equally picturesque perspective, and the fireplace offers exterior warmth to add to the interior heat brought on by drinking one of the great vintages on offer either as whole bottles, or take in a wine tasting to sample everything and then decide. There is a variety of cheese, crackers and other snacks on sale. They are open late on the first Wednesday of the month so you can stick around after sunset.

Not my favorite wines but overall a pleasant and informative tasting experience. The polo grounds are lovely and the staff is terrific. I go back often and have never been disappointed.

if you are looking for a picturesque weekend, you cant go wrong with any place in this area but King Family is beautiful. Took the family there over the Summer for their Sunday Polo Match. Polo is held just about every Sunday over the Summer into early Fall. Just think tailgating for a classier crowd. Back your cars right up against the polo pitch and enjoy a great day with the family. We went with a group of 13 others and we all had a great time. The polo itself is free and you're welcome to bring food and non-alcoholic beverages. Wine has to be purchased from them.

I would highly recommend King Family for those looking for something to do!
