Some wineries in VA just have one or two stand-outs, but PCW continues to offer an array of reds and whites that make my wife and I keep coming back. They have dry and semi-sweet reds and whites, but our favorites are the Corotoman red blend that goes incredibly with a juicy steak or burger, the Shirley chardonnay (the '13... More

After reading the TA reviews, we didn't have the highest expectations, but we popped in anyway. The tasting bar was very crowded, and there was just one gal working behind the counter. Nevertheless she welcomed us and assured us that she could include us and she did so nicely. Partway through, another young man came and took over for her... More

We had a less than stellar private tour/picnic at this Winery. The tour was part of a B&B groupon package we used for my birthday. Philip Carter seems to advertise as a higher class winery and as winery buffs, we was surprised to arrive and find a very plain, large room which looked more like a conference room than a... More

First visit to this winery. It is out of the way, but we thought the wines were quite good. The Tasting was very nicely done. We decided to have a glass of wine and a cheese basket. The basket was small, but adequate for two as long as you weren't planning it as a meal. Nice ambiance, less hectic that... More

We've checked out most of the wineries between DC and Front Royal, and Philip Carter is definitely one we'll visit again - and send friends to. First: their wine is solid. The tasting offers a nice variety and their staff is knowledgable about what they're pouring. When we visited, they had live music and a tent set up outside to... More

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

It is a very small winery, but you get a great view from wherever you sit whether you sit inside or outside. The wine is great too. However, parking is kind of scarce and the road going in and out is very narrow.

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:)
