Just a few miles from Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello at the heart of central Virginia wine country, Trump Winery focuses on producing high quality wines inspired by the French wine regions Bordeaux and Champagne. The vineyard boasts almost 200 acres of vines, while the estate itself offers over 1,300 acres for visitors to explore.
The incredible views of the Blue Ridge Mountains paired with the unmatchable quality of Trump wines makes the winery the perfect relaxing weekend getaway for anyone who enjoys serene mountain views and delicious wine.
The vineyards are planted at the base of Carter’s Mountain, and the climate, elevation, and soil work together to produce some of the most flavorful fruit around. The varying elevation of the vineyard, ranging from 600 to 1,000 feet, allows for each varietal to be grown in its uniquely ideal conditions.
Trump Winery crafts sparkling, red, and white wines from grapes grown on-site, so there is something for everyone to enjoy. Focus is put on growing grapes sustainably so the beautiful land is preserved for generations to come.
The award-winning wines crafted at Trump Winery include Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier. The Bordeaux-style red wines are marked for their unique complexity and depth. Similarly, the sparkling wines are crafted in a fashion that remains true to the Champagne region’s winemaking techniques.
Visitors can enjoy wine tastings in the beautiful, warm tasting room filled with laughter and pleasant aromas, or they can venture out onto the new outdoor terrace to enjoy views of the vineyard and rolling mountains beyond as they sip their wines.
Food is available, as well, making Trump Winery the perfect place to enjoy a late afternoon lunch on the patio as the cool mountain breeze blows across the nearby vines. Conveniently located in Charlottesville, Trump Winery allows for a fun, relaxing afternoon without spending too long driving.
