A TOUR OF CHARLOTTESVILLE’S MOST POPULAR WINERIES AND BREWERIES
Our keynote wine trolley tour, the Saturday Crozet Spirits Loop, covers a handful of the most popular wineries and breweries near Charlottesville. It begins in the thriving hamlet of Crozet, on “The Square." For those who may be based in Charlottesville, we also offer an optional pick-up at Kardinal Hall a half hour before the tour.
KING FAMILY VINEYARD
Our stops vary seasonally. As of this writing, we start with King Family Vineyards, which offers well-made and critically acclaimed wines, bricked patios with fire circles, a wide grassy field, stunning barn-style buildings and tasting rooms, and polo matches on Sundays during the summer.
VALLEY ROAD VINEYARDS
The wine trolley makes its next stop at Valley Road, another family-owned and operated vineyard. Valley’s gorgeous tasting barn abuts a beautiful lake and hillside, and they offer outdoor seating seasonally too.
The third stop on the wine tour, Veritas Vineyard, arguably the best-known vineyard in the region, shares many of the qualities of other Charlottesville wineries, on a grander scale.
CHARLOTTESVILLE TOURS – BREWERIES
The tour lets you wind down with two casual and more beer-centric stops, offering a curated offering of local wines and ciders. At Blue Mountain, a flight of beers can be paired with your pick of pub food options, an open air beer garden experience, and a game of corn hole. At PRN, a variety of live bands, seasonal entertainment and ever-innovating initiatives aim at customer satisfaction. PRN has a large music hall, to complement their storage-container bar and large fire circle seating area at the front of the property. Grab a snack from the food truck and make some friends!
THE BEST CHARLOTTESVILLE WINE AND BEER TOUR
The Loop ends where it started. We hope you leave with a sense of the abundance of good wine and hospitality Charlottesville has to offer and the desire to experience trolley magic again. With Crozet Trolley Co., it’s the friends you bring, but it’s also the friends you make along the way.
CHARTER A TROLLEY BUS
Our trolleys are also available for private charter. We are happy to help you put together the best wine tour for your group at some of the dozens of venues the Charlottesville area has to offer. Within easy reach of DC, Richmond, Norfolk/Virginia Beach, and Raleigh/Durham, Charlottesville wineries and breweries are an ideal weekend destination.
