We had just finished canoeing on the James River and decided to try a winery on the way home. We enjoyed a pleasant country ride and arrived at Blenheim Vineyards on a a overcast Tuesday afternoon. There were a few other couples there when we started our tasting. We are predominantly white wine drinkers and thoroughly enjoyed our tastings. We... 更多
I'm not a wine drinker, but the wife makes up for what I don't know. But I'll tell you, the wine they simply call "Chardonnay" was really good for me. This is a simple winery as these places go. But there are great views of the Piedmont to the east. And the wine was good, even for me.

Our experience here was amazing. The wines were delicious and we had a great conversation with one of the managers AJ. She told us a lot about the vineyards and the wine they had there. I would recommend this place for any wine lover and suggest they go earlier in the day.
