About Grace Estate Winery

The Grace Estate spans over 450 acres in Crozet, Virginia right outside of Charlottesville. Built in the 19th century, the mansion overlooks the vineyards and winery. Additionally, all grapes are grown on-site at the Mount Juliet Farm. The vineyards grow 12 grape varieties that create high-quality, local wines. Visit the tasting room to enjoy their exquisite wines. Create your own variation of flights, choosing from 3 or 6 different wines. While sipping your wine, snack on a charcuterie board or bring your own picnic. On a nice day, the patio is a great place to lounge with friends while playing corn hole and taking in the views. Keep in mind, if you are coming with a group of 8 or more, reserve a group tasting! The Tasting Room is open on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 11:00 am- 5:30 pm, and Friday through Sunday from 11:00 am- 9:00 pm.
