“Very Nice Facilities”

DelFosse Vineyards and Winery
Ranked #1 of 3 things to do in Faber
Attraction details
Reviewed 12 August 2013

Way, way out there. I think we went the wrong way, and drove on a gravel road for about 6 miles (the GPS took us out a different way, on a paved road), so you might check that before you take off. I thought the wines were okay, but nothing spectacular. However, the facilities are very nice. Once you come out of the "woods" while driving there, the building & grounds are very cool. Would be a good place to meet up with friends for a picnic, or to do a reunion or something.

The advertisement of another crepe day brought myself and a couple friends to the winery. One friend enjoyed a caprese salad crepe followed by the banana and nutella crepe for dessert. My other friend had the spicy sausage crepe and an apple crumble crepe for dessert. Myself, I enjoyed a grilled chicken crepe and a classic french style for dessert. We washed everything down with a glass of their wonderful white blend, Reserve D'Oriane and a bottle of Deer Rock White to share. Our server Deb was fantastic, the food delicious and served quickly. The tasting room manager Yvette even stopped by our table (as well as others) to ask how we were doing and chat about the winery.

I definately, once again, recommend this winery!

We were there for crapes and grapes. They have a lovely dining facility along with the tasting area and there are nice views of the mountains and the pond. Cabin on the top of the hill looked charming as well.

We have visitied many of the wineries in the area and this is, by far, our favorite. They have the best selection of wines. There is a fee for tasting, but they will waive it if you join their wine club (discounts on wine and you sign up to receive/pick up one shipment per quarter for one year). And not only are their wines delicious, but they may just have the best cheese plate on the planet. The facility is clean and nice. Service is also great.

My wife and I have now been to DelFosse several times and have developed a fondness for the winery, the setting, and the staff. Most recently we attended a wine pairing lunch featuring duck l'orange as the main course. Overall a very pleasant and enjoyable experience. The 2007 merlot is excellent, and the Sauvignon blanc was quite good as well. The winery is located about a half hour south of Charlottesville, but it is well worth the drive down 29. Certainly worth the time if you're out exploring wineries in the region.
