Pollak Vineyards

Finesse and balance of traditional French wines.

Pollak Vineyards is a small family-owned winery founded in 2003 on a 98 acre site west of Charlottesville. Today, twenty-seven acres and eight varietals of French vinifera are planted to produce exclusively estate grown wine that has the finesse and balance of traditional French wines. The more than 16,000 vines are hand-tended to achieve the best fruit. In the winery, many wines are made in small lots to control the process and and carefully coax the best fruit characteristics and blend of tannin.

The tasting room opened in May 2008. It is spacious inside for production and tastings, with a large veranda and windows to showcase views of vineyards, pond and adjacent mountains. Free outdoor concerts are held on the last Friday in warmer months. In cooler months, the large fireplace provides a cozy backdrop.
