King Family Vineyards

Winery in The Piedmont

Consistently ranks as one of Virginia's best wineries; try its flagship Meritage. Bring a picnic (the winery also sells gourmet goodies) and enjoy the expansive scenery, or book ahead to take a one-hour tour on Saturday or Sunday. At 1pm on summer Sundays (late May to mid-October), you can also catch a free polo match. It's 18 miles east of Charlottesville.
