Erika provided us (6 women on a weekend trip) with excellent choices of three vineyards. She is very knowledgeable, and took care of everything for us, even taking photos and helping us get boxes for shipping our wine. Everything was very organized. We loved the vineyards that she picked for us -- small, boutique places that were not crowded (especially... More

We booked this wine tour as part of a 60th birthday celebration. Erika was terrific! She is knowledgeable and did a great job educating us on the region and the wine produced in the region. She had picked out 3 vineyards, each with their own unique style. This was a first time wine tour for my sisters, and we all... More

Exceeded my expectations! Well organized. Great value for the money. Erika was very knowledgeable about the wines and the area, and made the tour a very interesting learning experience in addition to being fun. She picked us up at Arcady B&B and took us to three vineyards. She took photos during the day and emailed them to us later. At... More

We had a great experience with Chris. We celebrated our 20th anniversary by doing a wine tour (our first ever!), Chris was great in explaining the different wines, terminology, and had great patience with us - we aren't wine connoisseurs by any means :). The snack at the 2nd stop was perfect, local cheeses, chocolates and fruit. Chris even added... More

What an amazing and personal way to experience Charlottesville Wine Country! Erika was very knowledgable of the vineyards, history and area! Her food pairings were perfect and brought out the character of each of the wines tasted. We will definitely call on the services of Monticello Appellation Wine Tours again for an amazing experience that was both personal and fun!!

Chris did a fantastic job on the wine tour! Not only did he teach us about the wine we were tasting, but he also took us on a journey through the history of Virginia wine country. We toured smaller, boutique wineries to stay away from the crowds. My girlfriend and I couldn't have asked for a better experience.

We had a great experience on this wine tour. Our guide, Chris, was wonderfully helpful and a font of all knowledge when it came to wine making and Virginia wines. I thoroughly recommend this tour.

My husband and I recently had the pleasure of taking the new Food Pairing Wine Tour offered by Monticello Appellation Wine Tours. We visited three beautiful wineries and had an incredible day. Our guide, Erika, displayed not only a remarkable knowledge of the wines offered, but paired each wine with foods that truly complemented the character of the wines being... More
