BLUE RIDGE WINE EXCURSIONS

BEST WINE TOUR IN VIRGINIA

TRIP ADVISOR REVIEW

5 out of 5 STARS

My sister and I wanted to do something special for our mother's 60th birthday. So we booked the Garden Path cottage at the Iris Inn and decided to do a wine tour of the region. Blue Ridge Wine Excursions came highly recommended by the Iris Inn so I gave them a call. Andrea was very good about getting back to me quickly and helped make sure every detail was just right. But it was our driver, Bit, who really made the outing perfect. Based on our wine preferences he created the perfect itinerary for the 3 of us. There was even one place that was closed the day we were out and about bug he called them and they opened just for us. Andrea definely got Blue Ridge a 5 star rating from me but Bit gets a 10 star rating. Our mother had such a good time that she's still telling everyone about it and we went about a month ago.

“Truly a wonderful wine tour experience!”

We booked a wine tour during our honeymoon stay in Charlottesville. We were picked up at our B&B on time by our driver and wine trail guide. I am not sure I will be able to use words to describe how wonderful the tour of the wineries, vineyards, and mountain sides were. JC was the sweetest and friendliest person on the planet! He knew everything and made our tour educational, fun, and romantic! We had a yummy basket lunch at one of the vineyards looking at the mountains and landscape. JC set it all up and gave us time to enjoy and not be rushed. We had some time left and JC gave us a scenic tour of the mountain towns. If we could move to Charlottesville tomorrow we would!!! Thank you again for a great experience!!!

TRIP ADVISOR WINE TOUR REVIEW #1 Activity in Charlottesville, VA

My husband and two of our good friends did a wine tour last Saturday with Blue Ridge Wine Excursions through Albemarle Limousine and it was absolutely perfect! Bergen was our Wine Trail Guide and he could not have been more helpful or wonderful to us! The four Charlottesville area wineries that we visited were exactly what we were looking for via their suggestions, the suburban that we had was immaculately kept, and we had plenty of time to do and see all that we wanted in the five hour span. We had some extra time in the middle of our wine tour to get our locally catered gourmet lunch which turned out to be a great spread of meats, cheeses, hummus, waters, fruits....above and beyond what we expected! We could not have asked for a better day. We will definitely be returning! --- Kacey M.

Blue Ridge Wine Excursions Stellar Reputation Well Deserved! Virginia Wine Tours, TRIP ADVISOR REVIEW | 5 out of 5 STARS

My wife surprised me with a wine tasting weekend for my birthday, and Blue Ridge Wine Excursions was fantastic. Our driver and guide for the day, Bit, arrived at our hotel 10 minutes early in a sleek, black, late-model Mercedes. Our plan was to visit four wineries in about five hours, an ambitious goal, but Bit made it happen without making us feel rushed or pressured. We saw everything we wanted to see and had a great time doing it. Bit is extremely knowledgeable about the region, the wineries, and the wines.

It's clear from reading other reviews that Blue Ridge is consistent in working with professionals who are passionate about crafting a truly memorable experience that begins the moment your tour starts. Every aspect of our excursion was absolutely first class, and we are already planning to return to do a Blue Ridge tour with friends.

I hired Blue Ridge Wine Excursions for a 5 hour winery and brewery tour for my boyfriend's birthday. It was fantastic!  Our Wine Trail Guide was exceptionally knowledgable of the area -- had interesting stories of each brewery/winery and its history, he was courteous, arrived on time, and added to the experience. Moreover, as the day progressed, we changed our minds a bit on which wineries we wanted to tour -- not only was he flexible in changing the plan but had great advice to help make the best decisions. I absolutely recommend them to others, and I will be using them again, too!

My experience with Blue Ridge Wine Excursions was very positive.  They arrived early to pick up me and my party, and we all had a wonderful time on the Wine Trail!

Our Wine Trail Guide was charming and knowledgeable about the various vineyards. I didn't know that the second vineyard my party planned to visit required a reservation for large groups, but our Wine Guide knew and called ahead while we were tasting at our first vineyard. He also was kind enough to offer to take photos for us, freeing us to enjoy the excursion while he was in charge of the camera. He was our guardian angel. I would definitely recommend Blue Ridge Wine Excursions.

This is the 2nd time I have booked a wine tour with Blue Ridge Wine Excursion. I would and have recommended Andrea's company to friends & family. The drivers are very knowledgable and professional.

Virginia Wine Tours TRIP ADVISOR REVIEW

I found Blue Ridge Wine Excursions on Trip Advisor, and after reading the reviews, decided that this wine tour looked the best. Andrea, the owner picked us up from Keswick Hall promptly at our pick up time. Andrea was very pleasant, and knowledgable about the different wineries in the area. She inquired about what wines we like to drink and what we wanted to get from the trip, and I believe she did this very well. We had a wonderful time, and saw four different wineries. I would highly recommend Blue Ridge Wine Excursions to anyone who is unfamiliar with the region, or who doesn't want to drink and drive to the wineries. The car was immaculate, and we were free to take in all the beautiful scenery, while being transported to and from the wineries.

I checked out a number of Limo services in the Charlottesville area looking for one that provided a wine tour package for our 44th Wedding Anniversay. Blue Ridge Wine Excursions was the only one that seemed customer oriented rather than vehicle oriented. We could not have been more satisfied. Justin, our Wine Trail Guide, was outstanding - prompt, courteous, attentive, thoughful, personable and knowledgeable. Since we were unfamiliar with the area, we depended on Blue Ridge Wine Excursions to select the wineries for us to visit; and they did not disappoint. A truly relaxing and tasteful (pun intended) experience, especially the picnic basket lunch of bread, cheese, fruit, prociutto and salami, served by Justin at one of the wineries, complete with china plates and cloth napkins. (Did I mention attentive.) And when we asked Justin if he could find a place where we could pick up some items for a light dinner, he did some quick research on his Blackberry (or whatever it was) and found a nearby deli that featured made to order sandwiches with a quick turn around so as not to take up more time than necessary from our tour time. (Did I mention thoughtful.) We would highly recommend Albermarle Limousine and  Blue Ridge Wine Excursions! (By the way, our vehicle was a Mercedes E-class sedan; exactly the right car for the occasion.)

One of the best decisions we made on our vacation to Charlottesville was booking Albemarle Limousine and Blue Ridge Wine Excursions to tour the Virginia wineries!! We were made to feel so special!! Questions about our interests, tastes and preferences were not only asked but listened to!

What a treat to have Justin as our Wine Trail Guide, he was extremely knowledgeable about the virginia wine industry and the local charm.

If you planning a trip to Charlottesville to visit the wineries we highly recommend Albemarle Limousine and Blue Ridge Wine Excursions, you will not be disappointed.

Really hope to do it again soon!!

We went to Charlottesville for a girls' weekend and used Blue Ridge Wine Excursions and they were great! They recommended some beautiful wineries and our driver, Chris, was super professional, friendly and new a lot about the area. Andrea was great to work with when we booked everything- she got back to us quickly, answered all of our questions and was super accommodating as our group size increased. You will not be disappointed! We will definitely be using them again soon. --

TRIP ADVISOR REVIEW    5 out of 5 STARS

I started planning a winery tour a while ago with some friends and Albermarle Limousine / Blue Ridge Wine Excursions came out in my google search for transportation companies around the Monticello Wine Trail. I emailed the company inquiring for information about the tours/transportation services and got a response immediately. Andrea responded to all my questions (and I had many) in a very short time and made me feel that she valued me already as a customer. I felt very satisfied with the information provided and the prices are very reasonable so it did not even cross my mind to contact another company. I went ahead and made the reservation. The day of our tour came by, and our driver Chris picked us up on time and helped us to keep track of the time. He was as well very friendly and it was a delight to have him as our driver. I would use this company again in my next visit to Charlottesville, and you should do the same!!!! THANKS ANDREA AND CHRIS FOR YOUR GREAT SERVICE!

Unbelievable Experience

TRIP ADVISOR REVIEW 5 out of 5 STARS

My wife and I recently enjoyed an unbelievable tour of Charlottesville's surrounding wine country. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and took us to four vineyards over the course of five hours (with a delicious picnic lunch included). The staff at each of the winery tasting rooms enlightened my wife and I with regard to the finer points of viticulture. It was a relaxing and carefree day that my wife called one of the best days of her life. If you are a husband planning an anniversary or birthday trip for your significant other - Blue Ridge Wine Excursions is a "must pick." --

My family had a wonderful experience touring a few of Charlottesville's local wineries thanks to Blue Ridge Wine Excursions. Andrea asked questions to really pin down the type of experience we were looking for. Our driver/guide Chris was fantastic and was very accommodating when we wanted to make a change to the itinerary. He was friendly, knowledgeable, and a very conscientious driver. The picnic lunch provided was delicious which included meats, cheeses, and fresh fruit as well as truffles from Gearhart's. I would highly recommend Blue Ridge Wine Excursions and look forward to using them again. --

Blue Ridge Wine Excursions did an amazing job making our first wine tour experience in Charlottesville so enjoyable! Andrea was a great tour guide and was extremely knowledgeable on the areas we visited. She was super friendly, kept us on schedule and provided amazing customer service. We went to 4 different wineries and she planned everything out so well. I highly recommend the Veritas Vineyard, it was our favorite! My group was thrilled that we booked with Blue Ridge, and I will defintitely be calling Andrea next year when we are back!

Blue Ridge planned an amazing wine excursion for us. Andrea was so hospitable and provided great customer service. Everything was planned out so well and with such enthusiasm. We had a fabulous day thanks to Andrea! She was prompt with picking us up, extremely knowledgeable about the area and each vineyard we visited and knew which vineyards would be the most suitable to our taste. Andrea set a great picnic for lunch and then surprised us with an afternoon snack of cheese, crackers, fruit and cured meats. She was so lovely to work with and her passion for what she does really shows in the way she runs her business. We already decided that we are coming back next year and Andrea must be our tour guide! -- Melissa
