“Good wine, good crepes and great view”

DelFosse Vineyards and Winery
Ranked #1 of 2 things to do in Faber
Attraction details
Reviewed 1 July 2014

We did not have any plans to go out last Sunday, and after a quick search of things to do nearby Richmond I found this place, a little bit skeptical while driving there, but we were very surprised once we saw the beautiful view and facilities. Friendly staff, good crepes, good music and good wines saved our weekend.

on the low side, we saw some bugs inside the dining area especially on the tables closed to the windows.

But don't expect them to advertise that small fact!!!

We showed up at the winery about 4:40 on a Saturday afternoon, on a day that their website says they are open till 5:30 (last tasting at 5pm). There were several other people down in the tasting room, and you could tell that further up the hill there was some preparations for some event (turned out to be a wedding).

But even after we found the place, there were NO signs informing potential customers that they were closing early. We parked walked into the winery past two tables of folks sitting and sipping and visiting and up to the tasting bar. The lady behind the counter was counting money like she had just robbed a bank, looked at us twice, before my husband asked her if we could do a tasting. That's when she looked up, sighed and said, "We HAD to close a little bit early today."

We were shocked and pointed out that there were no signs or anything, and basically got no reply. Frankly, she acted like she couldn't care less whether we got a chance to sample their wine or not.

So, obviously, this is NOT a place we would recommend going to.....unless you're going to be the first one there, and even then, they might HAVE to 'open late'!!!

Go somewhere else.....there are many other wineries in the area that are MUCH better.

This is a picturesque winery making high quality wines with a french owner (Mr. DelFosse) who likes to hang out with guests and imbibe his wines. All cute, except anyone that knows the french knows that they can run hot and cold, and often display a touch of eletism. In any event, the winery mis-represents the terms of membership in its wine club. You MUST fulfill a one year committment first and only then can you cancel at any time. Given high shipping costs, you may wish to think twice about joining the "free, no obligation" club.

My family and I recently visited DelFosse on a beautiful Saturday afternoon. The grounds are stunning, and the tasting room was beautiful. We arrived about thirty minutes before closing, but they were kind enough to serve us the full flight for $10 (which is a bargain compared to the other local wineries serving only five wines for $10). The white wines were pretty good, but the reds were great. We ended up spending a lot of time talking to the owner - which we really enjoyed. The reds were so good that each of us bought a different varietal to take home. This is a must-visit winery in the Charlottesville area. Note: There is a beautiful log cabin on the property that you can rent!

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.
