Charlottesville Weekend Rendezvous

There is something about the fall foliage, savory red wines and crisp Fall air that draws me to Charlottesville this time of year. This weekend I had the best time visiting a dear friend who happens to live extremely close to some of the best wineries in town. We had a lovely time and I would definitely suggest doing it if you are in the area!

We toured and tasted three wineries on our adventure;Β King Family Vineyards, Pollak Vineyards and Veritas Vineyard and Winery.

It’s obvious whyΒ King Family VineyardsΒ was packed the entire time we were there, because of the best selection of wines that we tasted! Their 2011 Meritage was absolutely amazing and I will definitely have to get a few bottles for the holidays! And, I loved that I ran into a few fellow Richmonders too!

The view at Veritas Vineyard and Winery wasn’t the only thing beautiful at the winery! Who couldn’t “love” this focal point while sipping on some local vino!

If you are doing a wine tour you MUST try at least a few of their cheese selections! While at Vertias we chose their cheese platter and were offered all of this for only $15!! It was absolutely delicious and more then we could ever eat.
