Pick up general travel guides and maps at the information center or take the self-guided ¾-mile hiking trail to a 19th-century-reconstructed farmstead.
Nice displays in welcome center. Clean restrooms. Quaint gift ship. Awesome exhibits of farm. Friendly staff. Short hiking trails with spectacular views.

The tasting room and grounds are beautiful. It was raining when we went so everyone was inside so it was pretty crowded. It was a holiday weekend and a Saturday, but we only waited about 10 minutes for a tasting. They said this was a slow day so be prepared as this place seems to be extremely popular. The people were friendly and we left with five bottles of wine. The tasting room seating seems very comfy with big soft leather couches and a stone fireplace.

King Family Vineyards is a family owned and operated winery located at the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Crozet, Virginia just fifteen minutes from Charlottesville. The winery specializes in the production of ultra-premium wines that showcase the remarkable quality and terroir of the Monticello AVA. Beginning with carefully selected estate grapes, winemaker Matthieu Finot creates wines inspired by the old world, but are uniquely expressive of Virginia. Our passion is the customer, our craft is the wine. "When you visit our winery, you are coming to our home. We hope that you enjoy the fruits of our labor as much as we enjoy sharing them with you." -The King Family
Very pretty winery sitting in the foothills of the mountains and large grassy field, including stables and Polo field. Check the website for polo matches that are free and open to the public. Get there early, bring a blanket, food and some wine. Great way to spend the afternoon.
Wines are a little pricey, but the winery is very nice and impressive. There are some food options on site.
Can get really crowded when matches are ongoing, get there early and reserve your spot.
Sounds stuffy to watch polo, but really a great time to sit, relax and just take in the surroundings.

We discovered this vineyard after a 45 mile bicycle ride on the Blue Ridge Parkway. In walking distance from the little Bed & Breakfast we stayed in for a couple of nights. The place is enchanting! They have an inviting set-up with a terrace overlooking the planted vineyard and a beautiful pond. We had a taste of their different wines. Being a French wine enthusiast, I had doubt Virginia could produce good wines, but I was surprised! Most of them are rather good! I especially liked the 2013 Meritage. A must if you are in the area!

Our family stopped in Waynesboro at the Zeus theatre while on vacation. We found a very clean theatre, comfortable chairs, friendly associates, and clean bathrooms. We purchased our tickets online and secured our seats. Even though it was a $1 fee for each ticket online, it was still a good deal for the matinee. We would not hesitate to visit again.

The are and model homes in the shop windows were very interesting displaying a different era. Very detailed. Can't say I like the art as it's not my style but I'm sure it's perfect for some one. There is another storefront around the corner on Wayne for children support.

We bought a half bushel and didn't go into the orchard in the blazing summer heat. There were plenty of peaches and nectarines to choose from.These were NOT sold at bargain prices, mind you! There was an abundance of other foodie gift shop things to buy on the shelves. Don't miss the cider tasting room around back.

Loved this place--we got our sandwiches here before heading to the wineries. Blue Slate is DELICIOUS! They have everything you could want in the way of provisions for an outing. It is adorable looking as well--the front was festooned with pumpkins, etc.

Silverback Distillery produces ultra premium vodka, gin, rye whiskey and soon and bourbon. Surrounded by Mountains and bracketed by the Rockfish River, Silverback Distillery produces distinct and flavorful spirits through a perfect mix of Virginia grains, pure water and American craftsmanship.
They only make 4 liquors but they are amazing. A new company but multiple award wining spirits. I bought a bottle of Honey Rye Whiskey. Made with local honey.Thanks for the review, Rusty! :)

Have visited several times as they have a great ambiance and very good wines. The white table wine is light, bright, and crisp...very easy to drink and enjoyable. Staff are outstanding and interact with customers very well. Great to sit by fire with loved one or friends and sip on a chilled bottle. Very, very nice.
