What you'll do

We'll pick you up at 1pm, (which leaves the morning free to enjoy our local farmer's market or a visit to Monticello). About a 15 minute drive through the gorgeous countryside of the Monticello Wine Appellation will find us at a cluster of wineries. We have already asked you if you prefer red, white or all wines so have crafted a route specifically for you. We love to point out the historical spots as we pass them by as well. We escort you into the tasting rooms, where the staff knows us (we have been touring guests since 2003!) and help you figure out which wines you enjoy most and why. At the second winery, after your tasting, we sit you down to enjoy the view and relax over a scrumptious local cheese, local chocolate and fruit plate. (Tours often end at the gourmet shops where we purchase these on the way back to your lodging!) We love to promote all the local farm-to-table offerings that are so bountiful in our area! After the third tasting we bring you back to your lodging. If you have questions about places to dine we often drive you past our favorite restaurants or show you the pedestrian walking street where there are over 50 spots to dine. Salut!

Come! Enjoy the oldest owner-operated wine tour company in Charlottesville as we drive & pamper you in casual luxury. I grew up in Germany & Switzerland, & have lived & worked at wineries in Napa, California before moving to the Monticello Wine Country in the Charlottesville area, where my husband Chris and I planted and worked a Chambourcin Vineyard. I do speak conversational German & French. I started touring in 2003 and have watched the quality & number of wineries grow since then. We enjoy visiting our vineyard friends & tasting the wines. It's a rough job, but someone has to do it!
