Owner description: New Kent Winery offers exceptional wines in a unique setting. Completed in 2008, the winery is mainly constructed of reclaimed historic building materials such as pre-Civil War brick, 40-foot heart pine beams from the 1850's, and century-old railroad trusses. Along with wine tasting, New Kent Winery offers tours of the building that tell of the history of the building materials as well as our winemaking process. Having planted the first vines in 2001, New Kent Winery features award-winning fine wines, including Chardonnay, Meritage and White Merlot. Following a tour and tasting, guests are invited to relax and take in the scenery of beautiful New Kent Vineyards on one of the expansive covered lounging porches. The winery also offers gifts, wine accessories, clothing and other items in our gift shop. New Kent Winery is also an ideal location to host any number of private events, from weddings and receptions to wine dinners and corporate functions. Located just off I-64, exit 211, between Richmond and Williamsburg.

My husband and I stopped here on a wedding anniversary trip. We immediately fell in love with this gorgeous building. It is beautiful, inside and out. It wound up being a nice day,so we sat outside under one of their many patio heaters. The wines were all quite good, so it was difficult to choose one that we wanted to... More

The New Kent Winery is absolutely gorgeous! The interior of the tasting room is beautiful with authentic woods and the outdoor covered porch with tables, chairs, and rocking chairs looking out over the vineyard is amazing. The property is very quiet and you get a feel of being secluded (in a good way!) and away from the hustle bustle that... More

We visited all 4 wineries and this was our second favorite. This one had the best tour as they discussed the construction of the building which was very interesting. The wines were pretty good, but I think what propelled this into second place was the tour and the building.

There are very few wineries in the Williamsburg area and this one is still about 30 mins west of Williamsburg, but is worth the trip! We were very impressed with the large vineyard as we drove up and the grounds were perfectly landscaped and beautiful! The tasting room was very impressive and beautiful as well. We found many reclaimed accents... More

The rustic and classic feel of the main house paired with a warm greeting received immediately after entering definitely set the mood for the two days I was at the winery for a wedding. The facility is clean and beautifully kept, and the landscape is stunning. The wines on hand were also very tasty. All who were partaking in the... More

We attended a wedding here recently and had a great time. The main tasting room is very nice and they were able to hold the ceremony down in the cellar because of weather, which turned out to be unique. I didn't much care for the chardonnays or the red wines (dominated by Cabernet Franc), however a couple of the semi-sweet... More

What a beautiful winery building! The winery is set far back from the main road past 2 roundabouts and amid several new homes. The winery was built from recycled materials the builder had from Richmond, New York, etc. The story of the building is given during the wine tour. The wine is very good Virginia wine, especially the Chardonnay. Tour... More

Recently on my way to Virginia Beach I decided to stop in due to traffic on Interstate 64 and have continued to come back each month. I was pleasantly surprised that I enjoyed each and every wine that was poured for me. My first tasting was led by Joyce and she made the experience exceptional. She now greets me by... More

Having visited many Northern Virginia wineries and had disappointing experiences with the drinkability of their wines, we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of wines at New Kent (far superior to another older winery in the area.) The chardonnay was exceptional and the vidal blanc a revelation. . . We didn't believe we would ever become Virginia wine drinkers, but... More
