Come! Let a local Virginia vineyard owner do the driving and pamper you in casual luxury. No hassles reading maps, no worries about wine tasting and driving, as Charlottesville’s oldest owner-operated guided tour company escorts you to some of the finest wineries in Charlottesville.

We don’t simply drop you off and point you in the direction of the tasting room – we escort you in, assist you through the tasting, answer your questions and explain how to figure out which wines and winemaking styles appeal to your palate.

Fully livery-insured per Virginia’s VDOT requirements, and fully licensed (VDOT license #217) we take intimate groups of 2 to 6 per van to taste some of Virginia’s best wineries.

Our daily tours include pickup at 1pm anywhere downtown Charlottesville. We are not a big bus loading up 50 people, rather we book only up to two couples per tour.

Tours include driver/guide escorting you through your tastings at 3 wineries, a deluxe local cheese plate, personalized itinerary, and chilled bottled water for one all-inclusive price of $145 per person. No surprise add-on fees or fuel surcharges here!

You’ll be back at your B&B/hotel around 5 – 5:30pm.

**Please note the wineries do not allow tour companies to pay the guests’ tasting fees. Tasting rooms charge from $5 – $10 per person per tasting and accept credit cards.***

Our daily tours include:

  • Pickup and return to your downtown Charlottesville address, B&B or hotel
  • Driver/guide to escort you through your tastings
  • Personalized Itinerary
  • Virginia Wineries Guide & Map
  • Chilled bottled water
  • Deluxe cheese plate of local cheeses, crackers, local artisan chocolates, and fresh fruit

Monticello Appellation Wine Tours is run by local Charlottesville vineyard owners.
