Grace Estate Winery is one of the many wineries in the Charlottesville area. Located just a few minutes from town it is one of the newest in the area. Usually the first year a winery is open you should pass on by – not Grace Estate Winery! They are located on the Mount Juliet Farm which has been supplying grapes to local wineries for many years. So they came into the wine making business with full knowledge of how to grow grapes. Jake Busching, the “wine-grower”, worked with numerous area vineyards before coming to Grace Estate to start their wine program. He believes in holistically combining farming with wine making in the traditional European manner.
The wines offered up for tasting include Chardonnay (with a slight oak note), Voignier, Cabernet Sauvignon, Tannat, and several blends. All with a great depth of flavor particular to the varietals used in making them.
The winery is open for tasting Thursday through Sunday from 11:00am to 5:00pm. There is an indoor tasting room where you can taste 6-8 wines for $5/person. Then purchase a glass of wine to enjoy on their outdoor patio which has gorgeous views of the Blue Ridge mountains.
From the Author: Grace Estate is a new winery that is only 5 miles from us. We finally had a chance to sample their wines and fell in love with several. The Chardonnay has a slight hint of oak which is nice to taste as it reminds you of some of the bolder Chardonnay's but without the heaviness. "3" is a blend of wines from three area wineries - King family, Veritas and Grace Estates. I highly recommend these wines.
