  • We had a lot of fun here - family-owned, down to earth. Everyone working there was very nice and helpful. Great wine at an affordable price. We went in not expecting to purchase and bought 4 bottles. If you're looking for something fancy, this isn't the place for you. But if you're looking for a laid back, country atmosphere -this is a good spot to be.
  • It was awesome. Very friendly and the wine was great! Definitely on our return list.
  • Burnley Vineyards - don't change anything. I don't know why everyone is so critical - it's a family-run farm that does tastings on the side, not a Total Wine for God's sake. The woman who ran the tasting counter for us was extremely sweet and more knowledgeable about the wines and property than she let on at first - if you can't get past a little dust on the windowsill inside someone else's beautiful old home after you've been invited in, then save their family the trouble and don't bother stopping here. Their wines exhibited a broad range from sweet to dry, which is why I have such a hard time believing anyone who says they "didn't like anything here" - especially when they didn't even try everything. Unfortunately these people were given the option everyone has of picking and choosing which wines to try - which makes a tasting very one-sided and not wholly representative of what a producer has to offer. Obviously, my advice is: try everything - especially things you don't think you'll like. I didn't like everything, but I was also very pleasantly surprised by their Spicy Rivanna spiced red wine - something I never really thought I would want to try, much less buy. As for the vintage years, I purchased a 2006 Norton from them for $12 just out of curiosity for what a ten-year-old Norton would taste like. Thank God it wasn't corked - it was the best Norton I've ever had in my life. Obscenely flavorful and smooth yet almost tongue-tingling spicy - we HAD to make tacos to go with it. I guess I may not "know Virginia wines" because I don't make enough money to visit all 252 (and growing) wineries in the state every vintage year, but at least I can say that I've tried the ones at Burnley - and because of my experience here, I would never suggest discrediting any Virginia red based upon its vintage.
  • Nice people but the wines were undrinkable. I'm a big wine drinker, but I could barely drink most of them, and we skipped several reds. They are still serving 2010 vintage wines, which if you know VA wines, is way too old for VA reds!! There are so much better places in the Charlottesville area!! I will add- Glenn's review below is still very accurate! Skip this one!
  • The family that owns and runs Burnley Vineyard is magnificent! I was stunned that almost every wine they have I enjoyed. That is very rare. Usually one or two per stop but with Burnley all where top notch' Well done!
