Following in the footsteps of "King" Carter who introduced winemaking in the middle part of the 18th century to King George County, VA, a younger family member opened Philip Carter Winery here in 2008 in Hume, VA. Set on a plateau, it has a 360 degree view of the mountains and farms in the area. The tasting is done at... More

The B & B we stayed at is associated with this winery so we had been enjoying the wine each afternoon prior to our tour. Our B & B host is a chef and was very knowledgeable about the wines, parings etc. We enjoyed the tour, the man who gave the tour was knowledgeable and friendly. Knew some background about... More

I had previously been to Phillip Carter Winery for a traditional tour and tasting. That was a nice experience. If you want to do that look for a Groupon or similar deal. 1/24/2015 was the third annual Blessing of the Vine ceremony hosted by Phillip Carter Winery. 11 local wineries participated. It is fashioned on an ancient ceremony that originated... More

Visited on a very cold day in November. Lovely wine tasting! We all enjoyed our brief visit. I would encourage you to visit this winery if you are in the area.

We visited back in August, 2014 and had a good experience with the person doing the tasting and the wines were decent. Returned with friends for a tasting on Sunday, November 2. Terrible experience! The young man doing the tasting obviously was not interested in his work. He dumped the wine in the glasses and rattled off the descriptions rapidly... More

We were there two years ago and thought the wines wer good, and enjoyed the music and layout on a Sunday afternoon. this year, the wines were a disappointment, and couldn't even hear the guitar player while tasting! Seems a simple solution to connect the music (at a low volume) in the tasting room. There is a lot of competition... More

Good wine in a small winery and vineyard. They have seating inside and out. Very pleasant staff. They did not rush us out although we arrived close to the closing time.

Wine tasting at this lovely winery should be on everyone's list for the fall. The mountain scenery coupled with award-winning local wines will provide a day of entertainment. On the way from the winery, stop at one of the local orchards to pick apples or for your designated driver, purchase some local cider. Make reservations early and consider joining their... More
