The Team


Andrea Saathoff

CEO

After touring the burgeoning Monticello Wine Trail with my daughter in 2009, I knew the Albemarle Limousine Team could extend its highly acclaimed services.  Crafting the original Charlottesville Wine Tour was an exhilarating experience and we are glad to share our love of Virginia wine with all of our guests. 

Eric Bryant

Sales Manager

Having been a part of Blue Ridge Wine Excursions since its inception, I have loved watching the Virginia wine industry excel. I am proud to be a part of a team that thrives on being ambassadors to this exciting and celebratory 'happening' in Charlottesville.  

Andy Josselyn

Tour Development

After managing the Canary Press in Australia, Andy moved to Charlottesville where he instantly fell in love with its milieu.  Like a wineries terroir, it is Andy's firm belief that everything is a product of its environment, and he wanted to be a part of Charlottesville's.  His love of Charlottesville wineries is apparent in every tour he crafts.
