We used Blue Ridge Wine Excursions for my Bachelorette Party and it was absolutely amazing!!! The party bus we traveled in was great, had fun lights and we were able to play our own music. Our Bachelorette Tour included 3 wineries, an AMAZING charcuterie type lunch, and multiple course dinner at a nice restaurant in Charlottesville. The value of what we paid was definitely worth it. There were 8 people total in our party so at each winery we decided on 2-3 bottles that we could share (did not do tastings because of COVID limitations). Gillie our tour guide was literally the best. He was so sweet and even gave a couple of us sea bands because we got a little car sick in the beginning. Gillie made sure we had the best photos at all of our stops and we had everything we needed the entire trip. Highly, highly recommend this tour for anyone visiting Charlottesville!

I did a Saturday 12-5pm wine tour for 12 people on a 14 passenger tour bus. The bus seemed newer, clean, and there was plenty of room to store ice chests/portable chairs in the back. The driver (Daryl) was over 10 minutes early, which was great. He was very knowledgeable about the area, gave great recommendations, and actually called ahead to our upcoming wineries to check on the weather (since there were a few showers around the area that day). We did not prompt him to go out of his way to do these things, which was refreshing. Overall this was an outstanding experience.

We had the best wine tour experience for my birthday. Gillie was prompt and could not have been nicer or more accommodating. It snowed unexpectedly and he had no trouble navigating and was on time for every winery reservation. He even offered me his jacket and was very concerned that I didn’t have a jacket☺️ His customer service was outstanding and I was also incredibly pleased with the help I received from the office when making suggestions of wineries to attend with our size group. Thank you for making my birthday weekend so special!

This event was a custom wine tasting tour that exceeded my expectations. From my poorly sketched agenda, the team helped to refine driving and visit times to be a very workable itinerary. The chauffeur, Bill Tracey, provided a highly professional, memorable experience. Beginning the day before, Bill drove out to the remote pickup location to confirm the details, again from sketchy instructions. He performed enough field research along unmarked roads, and unmarked addresses to determine precisely where he should start the tour. More than a driver, Bill was host who provided pamphlets and a book describing the wineries in detail. At each stop on the tour he became a tour guide to highlight each property, describing its history and to point out interesting facts along the way. He served as a concierge who spoke to the winery staff upon arrival to introduce the tour and the requested service. And finally, at each stop he was eager to collect souvenir glasses and handy with the camera to capture the moment. Many thanks for an excellent experience.

We had an amazing time on our tour. Gillie was very knowledgeable and even with our 3 kids in tow was able to keep us on time for each one of our reservations. The bus arrived early and was very clean and comfortable. I highly recommend using this service if in the area for all of your transportation needs. If you get Gillie as a driver, you’re guaranteed to have an amazing experience. A+++!!

My boyfriend and I had a great experience on our private wine tour. Bill was our chauffeur and he was right on time from start to finish. He made sure to take as many pictures as we wanted at each place. He also made sure we had blankets, water, and there was a cooler in the Suburban for extra food we wanted to save after our lunch. The booking process was super easy and the receptionist made us a suggested itinerary with pick up and drop off times to each winery. I wanted to check out 4 wineries and ended up adding an extra hour onto our trip to have more time at each winery, and I am glad that I did. After adding the extra hour, the booking agent changed our itinerary to reflect the new times with no problem. It was so nice to know that you have a guaranteed ride and to not worry about the hassle or timing of Uber/Lyft. Very stress free and allowed you to relax and enjoy each winery. Will definitely be booking again on our next trip to Charlottesville!

Amazing experience! I've utilized Blue Ridge Wine Excursions twice now - once as just a guest and another as someone who planned the event, and both times were so hard to beat. Both times I also went to bachelorette parties. Chuck, our driver, was AWESOME - kept us on time without being pushy, took pictures of us, and had basic recommendations. It is not easy gathering up 13 people, but Chuck made it happen. I also really appreciated the backend process where they helped you pick your wineries after you shared what mattered most to you. The only slight downside is that you still have to call the wineries to make a reservation once you decide on the wineries (Blue Ridge doesn't do that), but it's so easy since they give you a tentative schedule and most of the wineries know of them and are happy to cater to a larger group. I highly recommend them!

We left from Fredericksburg and visited three different wineries including King Estates, Grace, and Hark.

The driver was on time for each winery and we had over 20 people in our group.

We safely returned back to Wilderness Winery in Spotsylvania to complete our tour!

We had the best experience with Bill Tracey and Albemarle Limousine. Bill was punctual, friendly, and very knowledgeable about the area. Bill went out of his way to make out trip seamless including providing water bottles and taking initiative to have complimentary wine glasses wrapped up for our entire party from certain wineries. We will definitely make an Albemarle Limousine custom wine tour an annual tradition!

Albemarle Limousine provided the most amazing experience in Charlottesville wine country when I was there the end of October! My friend and I visited for the weekend and they absolutely went above and beyond for us.

We’d scheduled a tour and sadly my friend got a stomach bug at the first stop and had to go back to the hotel. I still did the tour and had a lovely time (Daryl was so sweet and did everything he could to make up for lost time, and kept me company on my tour), but we wanted to get my friend back out the next day. Unfortunately everything was booked.

The next day we called to see if anything opened up and spoke with Kevin who handles operations. We were expecting bad news, and although Kevin couldn’t guarantee anything, he jumped into action and started making calls to accommodate us. Incredibly, they sourced a car, and one of their drivers came in to work to take us out for the day.

Everyone at this business is so nice and takes such good care of their customers. You can tell it’s in their culture. I have to give a huge shout-out to both Daryl and Jacob, our drivers Saturday and Sunday. Daryl was super knowledgeable about the region and I learned so much from him, being my first time in Charlottesville. Jacob was an absolute blast and there were lots of laughs and my friend came back 100% and had the best time.

Despite a rough start to the weekend with my friend getting sick, the whole team went above and beyond and it was truly a weekend to remember thanks to this team. They also recommended some less "commercialized" wineries such as Septenary and DelFosse and Loving Cup. We loved each one they suggested, and the wine was amazing! Also the folks at the DelFosse had major love for Albermale Limo too and said they always recommend them.

I can’t wait to go back and plan to use them for a whole weekend again! (Sincere thanks to Kevin, Daryl & Jacob for all you did to accommodate us!)
