Glass House Winery will forever be our favorite place in the Charlottesville area. Jeff and Michelle created a tropical paradise in the middle of Virginia. We said our vows on the lake with the beautiful vineyard as our backdrop and then headed to the tasting room for a delicious pairing of wine and chocolate with Erica (be sure to ask... More

Such a great place for a tasting! Very welcoming and knowledgable staff. The grounds are absolutely beautiful with a tropical conservatory to enjoy post-tasting with a glass or bottle. Live music on the weekends!

This is a wonderful find! The winery is a bit out of the way. We visited because it is open until 9pm on Friday (all other wineries seem to be closed in the area) and it was part of a special promotions /ticket in the area. We called ahead and were told our dog is welcome on a leash. The... More

Glass House does a fabulous job of bringing together great wine, delicious chocolates in a very unique and relaxing setting. They make a number of really outstanding wines. We especially love their Chambourcin grape based C-Villian. The servers are very friendly and accommodating when leading you through a tasting and really seem to enjoy sharing their knowledge about the wines... More

We visited this great little winery near Charlottesville and had excellent wine tasting and some chocolate too. They sell the Chocolate which is also made on location. The winery is also dog friendly. Excellent customer service!

A group of us went here in November 2016. The couple that traveled with us recommended this winery to us, so we took them up on their offer. The first thing I noticed was the fantastic views; there is a lake with tables set up on the grounds overlooking it. True to its name, the winery also has seating inside... More

I heard good things about the winery and the wines they offered, and I was hoping to like it. They people serving the wines for tasting were arrogant and patronizing. The wines were ho-hum. They were very rude when I asked about tasting the Viognier; it wasn't on the tasting menu, but I was interested in buying a bottle. I... More

I was wandering around trying to get to know the area and looking for a place to bring my husband. Erika was very hospitable. She showed me around and in addition to a tasting was happy to talk about the local area with tips and directions. The chocolate was amazing and gorgeous and is a great gift idea! Highly recommended.
