We met another couple there on a lovely Sunday afternoon. After the standard wine sampling, we sat out on the uncovered patio and enjoyed our cheese, sausage and crackers. Probably a lot more scenic once the vines grow and grapes ripen.

Via TravelZoo we got a good deal on tasting and picnic. Horrible day weather wise, but very nice tasting. Ben did a great job of narrating the history, how to etc during our tour. Picnic of sausage, crackers, cheese and chutney. In front of the fire place. Very nice. Good tasting for your money - opposed to many in our... More

I bought a deal from Travel Zoo that included a tour of the winery, a tasting, 2 wine glasses and a corkscrew, and a picnic basket with cheese/meat/blanket, etc for 2 people (only $35!!). We visited on a Sunday at the end of January. It was cold outside for sure, but the scenery is beautiful and will be even more... More

It had been a few years since our last visit. Met some friends who just moved in the area and wanted a winery close to their home. So, we met on a Saturday and had a horrible visit. Waited 15 minutes for someone to do our tasting. ( we were at the bar with glasses in hand). Couldn't get anyone... More

PC is one of the oldest most respected wineries, and they uphold their reputation well. If you sign up for a tour and picnic, they take you on a a quaint but informative tour, have you come in for a tasting, and then give you a cheese/meat basket (blanket if its cold) and some excellent wines. Some are pricey, but... More

This was an amazing experience, The Philip Carter winery tour was wonderful informative and fun, and the tasting and the picnic package was a delightful treat. Our hostess, Emily, was knowledgeable and gracious, and she added greatly to the overall experience.

We enjoyed our time at Philip Carter Winery. We took advantage of the winery tour and learned some interesting facts about the history of wine in VA and this country and how Philip Carter is tied to that history. Lauren was very attentive, provided a lot of great information, loved to share her knowledge and love of wine and provided... More

We visited the Phillip Carter WInery on a recent Sunday afternoon and had the standard winery tasting that inlcuded seven wines for $8. All of the wines were quite drinkable and I really enjoyed the 2011 Corotoman, a red Meritage blend. We were lucky in that a Phillip Carter wine club member was tasting at the same time we were,...

Excellent Living Social deal for a tour/tasting followed by a picnic lunch (basket, blanket, and food provided). Beautiful location, good wine, and very friendly and knowledgeable people.
