“Favorite Charlottesville Winery”

DelFosse Vineyards and Winery
Ranked #1 of 3 things to do in Faber
Attraction details
Reviewed May 2, 2009

This winery offers exceptional wines, along with a great outside area to sit and enjoy the scenery, a bottle of wine and a cheese plate. Whenever we got winetasting in the Charlottesville area, we always make sure DelFosse is on our list. The winery is run by a husband/wife who are very friendly and love to chat with tasters.

Reviewed May 26, 2008

We visited several central Virginia wineries over Memorial Day weekend. Of these, Del Fosse was a "just okay" experience. There is a free tasting list as well as a separate tasting list with a fee to choose from. Neither had a very extensive selection of wines. We did the free list which included 3 whites, a rose, and 3 reds. Most of the wines were blends rather than varietals. We didn't care for their wines as much as many others we sampled over our weekend. We had good service and no wait time. We chose this winery to visit based on the many wines advertised on their website, so we were disappointed to arrive there (it is a bit off the beaten track compared to many other wineries in the area) and only taste a few of the available wines. So overall, a "just okay" experience and for that I probably wouldn't recommend it because of the drive it takes to get there. Having a broader selection of wines available to taste would be enough to move it up to 3 stars from 2.
