  • Flying Fox is apparently an arm of Veritas but different wine/same winemaker. I like Veritas wine a lot better... The location is good and there are beautiful views. Very quaint. If I was staying at t...  read more »
  • Small building with chairs to sit, air, bathroom. Sometimes selections are sold out (late Sept.) Tastings $5 and you keep glass. 
  • This is a small venue with a pretty limited wine selection. The tasting was well prices and you got to sample everything they were in production of - about 9 wines. All the wine was pretty dry except ...  read more »
  • It started unexpectedly storming while we were running the 151, so the second we saw the grape sign we stopped in to get out of the rain. Don't let the little house and lack of vines fool you - we couldn't have picked a cozier little spot to wait out the weather in. Their little four-legged door greeter did a great job of making us feel welcome, the staff were extremely hospitable despite it being late in the day, and I appreciated how the wines were all very classic-Virginian in style. Their red table wine should be the standard on which to judge all Virginia red table wines. I hope they have the fireplace going in the winter when I come back. Most places place a lot of emphasis on outdoor seating, but I can't think of a better place to sit and drink wine on a cold day than their little living room.
  • We went to Flying Fox Vineyard this weekend, and had a great time. Unfortunately they do not accept reservations for large parties past 12, so we were not able to have a guaranteed time. With that said, we had no problem getting into the tasting room and tasting the wines. The staff was great, and we enjoyed our time!
  • What a great teeny winery in the heart of VA wine country! I loved Flying Fox. The wines are super tasty, and the "keeper" glasses are great stemless gems. There was food truck outside when we were there, selling kebabs and other stuff. Great to sit with a glass and nosh on a kebab!
  • Flying Fox was such a pleasant surprise! It was the first tasting room we ventured to on our weekend of wines, and it was definitely the best we found! The tasting room is small (tastings were $4, usually $5, and you keep the glasses) and cozy with a fireplace and a few chairs to relax in. The gal who helped us was knowledgeable and friendly. The wines were, well, awesome! We weren't able to taste the because they had already sold out, so I can't vouch for them, but we had a hard time deciding which reds to buy to take home! We ended up with a bottle of their Flying Fox Red (with mulling spices) and their Petit Verdot. Flying Fox had, by far, the best wines of the day.
  • This is one of the many vineyards in Charlottesville that have a good flight of white wines, they are so refreshing and soothing to the palate. The small cosy tasting room is just too good and the staff are very friendly. Its one vineyard everyone should visit and I love their wine glasses!
