If you're looking for a fancing tasting room with all the amenities of a boutique winery, you'd best pass on Lovingston. If you're looking for some excellent red wines, Lovingston is certainly worth the drive down Route 29 from Charlottesville.
The tasting area is small, and located in the production area. Fancy it's not. Lovingston does not produce a lot of wines, but what they do produce is of high quality. On the particular day we visited, our wine was poured by the winemaker, Riaan. What a pleasant experience -- Riaan's passion for making wine is obvious. It was enjoyable hearing his description of the processes and his philosophy on making wine.
All in all, a wonderful experience -- we ended up buying six bottles.
Thank you, Riaan!
