I visited Phillip carter with a group of 8 friends. I had purchases a travelzoo voucher for a tasting and picnic. The tasting had a good variety. Everyone had something they enjoyed. The picnic baskets were small - a hunk of cheese, hunk of sausage, half sleeve of ritz crackers and a tiny jelly - for each 2 people. I... More

My husband and I frequently visit wineries in Virginia. We enjoy these visits as much for the ambience and countryside, as we do for the wine. As a result, our reviews take into consideration the extras of any visit, as much as the wine, itself. We were fairly disappointed in the extras of our visit to this winery this past... More

This is the second time I've been here. The first time was a few years ago, after visiting some other local places, so we decided to go back to try it again with a "fresh palate". A lot of the wines were either too earthy or too sweet for my taste. They had a nice Norton on the tasting menu,... More

Tour/Tasting was very nice.....just enough cheese and sausage in the picnic basket so don't expect a large amount(we found it enough however).Grounds were nice and there was a nice friendly guy playing music who enagaged the crowd. Over all I would suggest a visit:)

As a descendent of Charles "King" Carter, this winery is very close to my heart, as it has my family crest all over the bottles, the glasses, and the building itself. It's situated on 17 acres of gorgeous land and makes for a very relaxing afternoon sipping wine out on the patio or out by the vineyards. We had a... More

We had to find out after noticing them planted with each row. Turns out they are like canaries in a coal mine: an early indicator of trouble. Roses are susceptible to two fungus that grapes are as well. Staff knew their wines and presented in an entertaining way. Live musician. Venue for a wedding later in the day we were... More

This winery is one of the most tranquil and beautiful ones -- small/medium sized with excellent wine that could be compared to these of Italian wines (my friends from Italy have mentioned that). Welcoming staff and picturesque views -- perfect for a nice picnick.

....but a bit disappointed in the Groupon they offered with a wine tasting and picnic lunch. Small amount of cheese (about 4 oz. and small amount of sausage)....they were out of crackers or bread for the cheese.....and a glass of wine was an additional $9.00. We had to stop somewhere else to have a real lunch. The Groupon also included... More

We were able to sit down for our tasting and this allowed us to really enjoy the wines. Our guide was quite informative and we bought 3 bottles. We will returñ.
