I've been to this annual event several times--it's always on the same day as the Colonial Williamsburg Grand Illumination and always well-attended. The food and wine were great, as expected. Only problem this year was "short pours", maybe an ounce or an ounce-and-a-half of each sample wine, rather than the more generous two ounces we all love. But enough folks... More

We found this winery a real enjoyable stop. The people there are so friendly and helpful. You do not want to miss the winery tour. Yes, it's extra money but it's worth it. Our guide was knowledgeable and personable. She explained all the operations and answered our questions. Then she took us into the tasting room and gave us another... More

First let me say that we love this winery and the wine - one of our favorites. This prompted us to sign up for the holiday celebration. The food selections were good especially the white bean truffle mushroom soup. The wine selections were good with the food pairings however the amount of the wine sample they gave out was pitiful....

We appreciate feedback from our guests. From the comments we received during the early part of our Holiday Celebration on Sunday, it became clear that not all of our wine pourers had been instructed to pour the correct tasting portion of 1 1/2 ounces (which would have totaled about 2 glasses if the guest visited every station). About an hour... More

My friends and I have been customers, and lovers, of this winery. Tours: Every time I go to the winery I do the Reserve Tour and Tasting. If you are a serious wine collector or a person who wants to have more education on what you are drinking, I highly suggest this tour. Just be sure to call in advance... More

For several years my wife and I have enjoying the wonderful holiday celebration at WW. I remember when the cost was $12.00 per person and the local vendors would prepare some of the most wonderful foods for WW to pair with. For years the place was packed with wine lovers talking about the wonderful Christmas decorations that filled the hall,... More

The Williamsburg Winery has been hosting its Holiday Celebration event for over 20 years. Up until 2012 we had worked with several local restaurants and caterers to provide many of the foods served at this large event. Due to increased demand on these businesses from the growth of Colonial Williamsburg's Grand Illumination event as well as our desire to keep... More

It was a wonderful experience. We purchased tickets for a group lunch, tour and tasting experience. The food was wonderful and the tour and tasting was a great ending. We learned so much about wine making. So glad we did this.

This is the most corporate and impersonal of the wineries on the Colonial Virginia Wine Trail. While the wine is good, it seems like it is more of a corporate environment and move merchandise. The location is in a neighborhood which is a little odd, but overall it was a nice enough place.

We stopped in while enjoying a weekend in Williamsburg. Williamsburg Winery has BEAUTIFUL grounds! The buildings are nicely done in the colonial style and look amazing! They offer a couple of styles of tastings, one for $7 and one for $15, with the $15 version including reserve wines. We felt that was rather steep to pay for a tasting, considering... More

My wife and I always enjoy stopping in at the WIlliamsburg Winery. We both fell in love with Governors White several years and with each passing year, the wines continue to excel. Also great wines to enjoy while you write about your food experiences in Williamsburg. Add to you favorites!

I've been to a few vineyards, but nothing prepared me for this experience. We were greeted warmly, given a tour of the facilities by a knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide. We had a great tasting of great wines. In the gift shop we asked about a wine on display and the manager left and brought back glasses with samples. Amazing hospitality.... More
