“GREAT WINERY AND WINES BUT....”

DelFosse Vineyards and Winery
Ranked #1 of 3 things to do in Faber
Attraction details
Reviewed February 20, 2014 via mobile

This is a picturesque winery making high quality wines with a french owner (Mr. DelFosse) who likes to hang out with guests and imbibe his wines. All cute, except anyone that knows the french knows that they can run hot and cold, and often display a touch of eletism. In any event, the winery mis-represents the terms of membership in its wine club. You MUST fulfill a one year committment first and only then can you cancel at any time. Given high shipping costs, you may wish to think twice about joining the "free, no obligation" club.

My family and I recently visited DelFosse on a beautiful Saturday afternoon. The grounds are stunning, and the tasting room was beautiful. We arrived about thirty minutes before closing, but they were kind enough to serve us the full flight for $10 (which is a bargain compared to the other local wineries serving only five wines for $10). The white wines were pretty good, but the reds were great. We ended up spending a lot of time talking to the owner - which we really enjoyed. The reds were so good that each of us bought a different varietal to take home. This is a must-visit winery in the Charlottesville area. Note: There is a beautiful log cabin on the property that you can rent!

Way, way out there. I think we went the wrong way, and drove on a gravel road for about 6 miles (the GPS took us out a different way, on a paved road), so you might check that before you take off. I thought the wines were okay, but nothing spectacular. However, the facilities are very nice. Once you come out of the "woods" while driving there, the building & grounds are very cool. Would be a good place to meet up with friends for a picnic, or to do a reunion or something.

The advertisement of another crepe day brought myself and a couple friends to the winery. One friend enjoyed a caprese salad crepe followed by the banana and nutella crepe for dessert. My other friend had the spicy sausage crepe and an apple crumble crepe for dessert. Myself, I enjoyed a grilled chicken crepe and a classic french style for dessert. We washed everything down with a glass of their wonderful white blend, Reserve D'Oriane and a bottle of Deer Rock White to share. Our server Deb was fantastic, the food delicious and served quickly. The tasting room manager Yvette even stopped by our table (as well as others) to ask how we were doing and chat about the winery.

I definately, once again, recommend this winery!

We were there for crapes and grapes. They have a lovely dining facility along with the tasting area and there are nice views of the mountains and the pond. Cabin on the top of the hill looked charming as well.
