Never having been to this winery before, we decided to take the tour before the wine tasting. Tour and tasting is $10. Tasting alone is $6. In both cases you get to keep the wine glass. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and helpful in answering our questions and showing us around. He explained the wine making process and how... More

We stopped in on a Thursday afternoon for a tour and tasting while passing through the Williamsburg area. The tours run every hour and cost $10 per person, which includes a tasting of 6 wines and a moderate sized wine glass. Our tour was very informative and our guide was great at answering questions. The wines we tasted were very... More

We've been to wineries in California, New York, and others in Virginia. This one was not them. Unless you pay for the tour - and we did not since it was late in the day - it is merely a storefront with no atmosphere. We also skipped the eating area. About 30% of the floor space is selling generic wines... More

We participated in one of the tours and wine tastings available at the Williamsburg Winery while in town for a wedding. What a treat! The winery is well organized and the folks working there are very helpful and knowledgeable. Someone was close by, yet never too close, when we had a question or needed assistance. The tour was fun and... More

I have been on winery tours and wine tastings before, but they all paled in comparison to this winery. Our guide, Dave, was very knowledgeable and well-informed. The selection of wines for the tasting was really good and everyone in the group had a different wine as favorite. The whole experience was excellent value for money and time.

We were back in Williamsburg last month and, as usual, we paid a visit to the Winery for lunch. My wife and her sister opted for a cheese board to share, as it says on the menu. If it hadn't been so ridiculous it might have been funny! To pass it off as nouvelle is one thing, but there was... More

The staff at the Williamsburg Winery is very knowledgeable about their craft. We learned many things about the wine making process and the history of wine bottles. The tasting at the end of the tour offered a wonderful selection of wines. My favorite wine was the Jamestown Cellars Spiced Wine.

My sister and brother-inlaw took me to a reserved touring to the Williamsburg Winery. The staff at the Winery are extremely knowledgeable and helpful. Our guide, Joe, was a delight and he made the experience one I won't forget. Their wines are magnificent. We enjoyed a Father's Day lunch at the Tavern on the property and it too was absolutely...

We don't live very far (just over an hour) away we love to visit at least once a year (preferably twice) they always feature different wines on their tour. So we love adding different wines to our stash at home. We love sharing this with friends - any excuse to go back!
