Monticello Appellation (formerly Arcady Vineyards) Wine Tours

1493 Milton Road, Charlottesville, VA 22902

(434) 960-0820


Monticello Appellation, (formerly Arcady Vineyard Wine Tours) in operation since 2003, is pleased to offer private escorted wine tasting tours for 2 - 4 guests for one flat rate - no taxes or additional charges, fuel surcharge or gratuities added, ever. Tours do not include tasting fees as the wineries do not allow tour companies to pay them. Tasting fees run from $10 to $12 per person per winery and they all accept major credit cards. Our popular 3 winery tour at $145 per person includes driver/guide to escort you through your tasting experience, plenty of bottled water, and a deluxe local cheese, local chocolate and fruit plate served at the second winery so guests can relax and enjoy the scenery and ambiance of the winery. For $165 per person we also offer the three winery tour, with a served picnic lunch. The lunch includes a small cheese plate, local gourmet sandwich, crunchy kettle chips, and a pastry from our favorite local bakery. On Thursdays and Fridays we have a new, unique tour not offered by anyone else in the area - a Food Pairing three winery tour, also for $165 per person. On the Food Pairing Tour, the first stop pairs specialty cheese with the tastings - 2nd stop is different finger snack paired with the tastings - 3rd stop is dessert pairing with selections from pastries from our favorite local bakery. Any one of these tours is a wonderful and relaxing way to taste and discover the varietals and styles that appeal to your palate! Should you have any questions please feel free to contact us at
