Owner description: King Family Vineyards is a family owned and operated winery located at the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Crozet, Virginia just fifteen minutes from Charlottesville. The winery specializes in the production of ultra-premium wines that showcase the remarkable quality and terroir of the Monticello AVA. Beginning with carefully selected estate grapes, winemaker Matthieu Finot creates wines inspired by the old world, but are uniquely expressive of Virginia. Our passion is the customer, our craft is the wine. "When you visit our winery, you are coming to our home. We hope that you enjoy the fruits of our labor as much as we enjoy sharing them with you." -The King Family

The winery is in a beautiful area-the staff was very pleasant-the wine we tried was very good-a good stop if you are in the Crozet area.

Our group visited four wineries and voted this one the best. Excellent wine poured by knowledgeable staff in the tasting room.
Covered outdoor seating on the porch or the patio. Polo on Sundays behind the winery. Even a wedding in the barn during our visit.

Me and my husband had a great time there. Nice local wine, beautiful location. We just wanted to try something local. We had the tasting flight of 5 wines with some cheese and cured meat. And we really liked their chardonnay!!! Its a yang winery dont expect the same service like, let say, in California or Oregon. Place is definetly at the beginning of a race:)!

I had business at UVA and I took my wife with me to see the area. After visiting Monticello, we stopped here just to check out a local winery. My wife and I have a 6000 bottle wine cellar about 85% full of very collectable wines representing all of the major wine regions with bottles such as '59 Mouton, '23 Fonseca, '90 Grange...etc. We just wanted to hit a local winery and enjoy a simple lunch with wine somewhere different. The cheese, cured meat, pâté and cracker selection made for great lunch food. We started with the tasting flight of 5 wines. They were all fine but the chard stood out so we drank two glasses each with lunch. We even bought a few bottles of the chard plus a few that were not available to try by the glass. The scenery, people and atmosphere were all excellent. We will go back when we are in the area again. Anyone expecting Napa, Tuscany, Rioja...etc. needs to buy a ticket and travel to those places. If you have an open mind and you can appreciate a place for what it offers, it is a very good experience and a lot fun.

The setting was nice and it was very cool to watch part of a polo match, but otherwise we were not impressed. The wines were below average. At first we thought maybe we just didn't like Virginia wines, but that was definitely not the case as the next winery we went to had some amazing wines.
