Stopped by Stinson on a 72 degree day in November. Even by COVID standards the crowd was small (less than 10 people spread about the spacious grounds). Staff was very friendly. Wines were a pleasant surprise. We enjoyed the Tennat and Cab Franc.

If you are looking for a great afternoon at a vineyard with an amazing view, this is the place to be. It’s smaller than some so much quieter and relaxed than others. They have a rose that I always enjoy on a sunny afternoon.

We visited many wineries this past weekend. There was six in our group. We all agreed that Stinsons had the best consistency in their wine selections. Not a bad wine was offered. Our groups favorite was the Cab Sav.

They also offered an extensive list of cheeses to choose from. We got one of each.

Will definely go back and expect an even better time once we're on the other side of Covid-19. (speaking of, they practiced great CDC guidelines.)

We ordered a White wine flight. All the of the whites were tasty. Our two favorites were Sauvignon Blanc and the Sugar Hollow White. We bought a bottle of each one.

As locals, we’ve been to basically all of the wineries in the Charlottesville area, and I would put Stinson in the top quarter (maybe higher) when it comes to operating in the COVID area. While it’s not a huge seating area, they have done a great job distancing the tables, and wine service is prompt and efficient. The view remains gorgeous, and about the only downside is the 20ish minute drive from “downtown”. The wine was surprisingly good - we throughly enjoyed the Chardonnay, and did a tasting that included a nice Cab Franc, decent Rose and an enjoyable white blend. Met my 70 year old mom and brought our two kids under the age of 8 and puppy, and all felt welcome and enjoyed themselves.

When ordering cheese and crackers to go with our flight of wine the lady pulled out a package that looked like a lunchable you could buy at the corner store. Our reserved table was old and had stains on it. There were flies all around when trying to sample our wines and eating our packaged cheese and crackers. Disappointing experience.

The most relaxed, friendly environment of all the wineries we visited. Sat outside on lawn and enjoyed the food we brought plus some we purchased and sampled the wines. Surprising to all of us, we liked the Tannat the best and had a bottle of that. Lucky enough to have a perfect weather weekend, it was lovely.
P.S. If you want a guaranteed "seat" make a reservation--Covid protocols for distancing, etc.

The flies were awful! Please consider spraying. Difficult to enjoy wine or food while constantly swatting at them or having to get up and down to get wine and food. Would be a whole lot safer (covid) if you had servers bring items out, as opposed to guests having to move throughout & close to others to wait in line to purchase items. This used to be one of our favorite spots, but we we’re treated rudely from the very first encounter walking up. Too many other local choices. Sadly, we will not be back.

Didn’t have any food so gave one star. The rose was very good and the set up for Covid precautions was well done. The pours on my tasting flight were the smallest tastes I’ve ever had at any winery. For $10 felt ripped off. One of my friends got the same flight and the pours were better. So maybe just bad luck.

Placed us in direct sun with no cover and then let people who didn’t have a reservation set up camp chairs and a truck in front of where we were sitting and they blocked the view. Tried the first flight of wine too and was underwhelmed.

I’ve lived in the Central VA wine region for 12 years and Stinson is my absolute favorite vineyard. The wine is phenomenal, staff is incredibly friendly, and they have a gorgeous and peaceful Mountain View. Excellent safety precautions as well in the COVID era. If you appreciate a family run, intimate setting and beautiful wine - Stinson is simply the best the region has to offer.

We had heard good things about Stinson and it did not disappoint. The outdoor seating layout was excellent both in exceeding distancing requirements and in providing a view to complement the tasting. The Adirondack chairs were comfortable as well. Word to the wise, reserving in advance makes it likelier you will be in a shaded spot. Three tasting menus of four wines each were available, of which we had two, with only Cab Franc overlapping. We thought the standout among our selection on this quite sultry day was the Tannat-based rose, but the Meritage was one we would return to in cooler weather or with a substantial meal. We brought our own lunch -- sandwiches from Foods of All Nations, highly recommend! -- but the winery had some prepackaged selections of cheese and charcuterie available. They had run a little short that Sunday, I believe, so we were glad to have thought ahead, and appreciate their relaxed attitude about outside food. Nice servers, worthy wine and understated but sublime ambiance, our fave of the weekend in Monticello wine country.
