“Wow. Just Wow. Having been to 38 wineries within 30 minutes of Charlottesville, this is the new Gold Standard New Tasting room opened across the way and up the hill from the old one and it is unbelievable. The views are just breathtaking… mountains, vineyards, and water everywhere you look, and this time of year the colors are starting to pop. The facility is huge and has first-class finishes, furniture, and fixtures inside and out… The bars are long so plenty of room… The leather couches are so comfortable and the huge windows allow you to take in the view regardless of the weather… Trump hits 5 stars on everything I look for in a winery — views, food, facility, ambiance and, of course, wines.” - Trip Advisor Reviewer
