This was our first stop on a winery/brewery tour for a bachelorette party! We had 10 girls and the wine tasting to ourselves. Learned a lot about the wine, my favorite was the gewürztraminer (girls are meaner) wine! The outside pavilion area was a very pretty scene and although it was pretty windy and cold outside, sitting by the windows... More

This vineyard has a new tasting room in a beautiful setting with gorgeous views. The wines are tasty and the scenery relaxing. Don't miss this one on your wine tour.

Met our friends here and sat out in the pavilion so they could bring their dogs inside. Very comfortable couches and stunning views. We brought our own picnic food so we grabbed a bottle and enjoyed! Very relaxing. Nice staff inside the main building for your tastings. Would go back!

We went here on December 23 and it wasn't busy at all. However we were disappointed that they only had one sweet wine for tasting. The rest were dry ones. We only spent about 10 minutes here.

There are several fine vineyards along the Route 151 corridor, but it's worth going a bit off the beaten path to find Afton Mountain Vineyards. The grounds are lovely, the farmhouse is cozy, without the commercialized feel of some large vineyards, and there is a glass-enclosed gazebo with wonderful mountain views. The wines are some of the most imaginative and... More

The woman doing our tasting was great. Friendly, gave good description of the wines we tasted, and made our tasting personal. As we tasted a small grouping of deer came out of the woods for some water. This is a good stop for tasting and having a picnic lunch. The view is beautiful and relaxing.

Is this Heaven? Because it sure looks like it. I mean, my goodness! Imagine the most gorgeous mountain views EV-EV-EV-Ah then quadruple them. Afton Mountain Vineyards is JUST GORGEOUS. We enjoyed the wine tasting very much, both because of the knowledgeable, yet accessible, friendly staff and also because wines that are not normally in our wheelhouse, like Gewürztraminer, were a...

This place is beautiful! We visited after hiking Humpback Rocks. We enjoyed a tasting then sat outside with a glass of our favorite! So glad they had snacks because the cheese, wine, and crackers along with the relaxing setting made for the perfect afternoon!

My visit to Afton Mountain was with a group of coworkers. We reserved a table in the air conditioned glass picnic area and enjoyed sampling the wines. The glass enclosed area is unique with fairly strict rules on time and number of people. There was a bridal shower party going on during our visit and the noise inside was unbearable.... More

This winery was the last stop during a day of tastings- what a great way to end! This winery is much smaller than a lot of the ones in the area, and the intimate lounge area and tasting rooms inside are super cozy and fun. The tasting was delicious and our bar tender even let us try two additional whites... More
