Merrie Mill Farm & Vineyard Ride


Rates: $185/per person (2 Person Minimum)


Duration: 1.5 Hour



We provide guided horseback rides and tours to wineries and vineyards in the Charlottesville, Virginia area. Indian Summer Guide Service is fortunate enough to have access to some of the most breathtaking farms and vineyards in the region. Each of our private horseback rides is led by one of our knowledgeable guides, who will ensure your safety as well as your enjoyment. After the ride you can make your way to the winery to enjoy a wine tasting and stock up on your favorites. From the UK to VA, the Pelly family has made Merrie Mill Farm their home. A home is just what the tasting room feels like, albeit an eclectic one – featuring antique furnishings, personal artwork and antique taxidermy. The ride at Merrie Mill boasts mountain views and creek crossings.
