We arrived as the doors were opening this past Saturday. Our plan was to purchase a bottle or two of our favorite wines that we had tasted on a previous visit, but, ended up with WAY more than that! The people here are VERY knowledgable about their wines and even offered us a taste of one or two that we... More

Our family stayed in the hotel next door to the winery and we got tickets for the wine tour and tasting. The winery is pretty nice, the tour was good and the wines excellent. I recommend a visit.

We did the wine tour and it was very interesting. Tour includes wine tasting and you get to keep your engraved vine glass. We also ate at the Tavern here and food was really good. Worth your time to visit.

We took a private group tour presented by our resort. We toured the wine cellar and then had dinner in the tavern on the property. The food was excellent. Salmon with avocado sauce and chicken in a blueberry and balsamic reduction. For dessert they had chocolate mousse with fresh raspberries or cheese cake. Both were very good. Not sure if... More

This was my first experience at a winery and I am so glad I went. Our tour guide was Brittany and she knew so much about the wines and the wine making process. They were setting up for a wedding ceremony on the property and if you like quaint, it's a beautiful setting. The wine was delicious and can't wait... More

Great tour, I have never been in a wine cellar like that before. I would have done the reserve tour if we had planned in enough time. Our tour guide was very informative and pleasant. It was our anniversary and it was a good way to spend it!

Stumbled upon this place just 15 minutes before the tour started and Josh, our tour guide, chatted us up until it started. The place is clean and the tour happens inside away from the heat. The tasting happened right after the tour and the wine is fabulous. Crackers and cheese were offered to cleanse the palate between wines and a... More

At Williamsburg Winery, you have to pay for a tour. (We chose not to since we could not do a "sweet" tasting afterward.) Instead, we simply did a tasting. Some in our group did the Sweet option, while others did their Fine Wine and Reserve Wine options. If you like super sweet wines, you may be disappointed, but I enjoyed... More

The tour took only half an hour and costs $12 per person (tour & tasting). You get to keep the wine class! All of the wines that we tried during the tasting were dry. I am more of a sweet wine drinker and our tour guide was nice enough to let us also try the 2014 Governor's White, which is... More

We enjoyed a very nice lunch before going on a tour of the winery. Although a little pricey, the food was good and the view from our table was enjoyable. I had a BLT - which was excellent. Loved the thick bacon and the avocado really was a nice touch. Our waiter was very good and the overall service (seating... More
