Review of Lovingston Winery

Lovingston Winery

Reviewed 24 October 2012

We were traveling Route 29- doing some leaf peeping--came along Lovingston Winery.

Small vinyard, small tasting area, right were the wines are "made". We tasted some lovely, fragrant Reds, Merlots, etc.

Try the 2006 Reserve Merlot--nice nose, good body &nice finish.

Beautiful area to see when the leaves change.

In the wine tasting area you get to see exactly how the wine is made from your seat. The tasting was a very friendly, educational experience.

If you're in the Charlottesville area and you love beautifully crafted wines and intelligent conversation about wine, make it a point to visit. The winery is roughly a half-hour south of the city, and well worth the trip down Route 29. The tasting room is simple, which suits us fine, because the wine is the star here. You will not come away disappointed.

If you're looking for a fancing tasting room with all the amenities of a boutique winery, you'd best pass on Lovingston. If you're looking for some excellent red wines, Lovingston is certainly worth the drive down Route 29 from Charlottesville.

The tasting area is small, and located in the production area. Fancy it's not. Lovingston does not produce a lot of wines, but what they do produce is of high quality. On the particular day we visited, our wine was poured by the winemaker, Riaan. What a pleasant experience -- Riaan's passion for making wine is obvious. It was enjoyable hearing his description of the processes and his philosophy on making wine.

All in all, a wonderful experience -- we ended up buying six bottles.

Thank you, Riaan!
