Found the tour of the winery to be very educational. Guide was very knowledgable and eager to answer any questions. We did the basic tour which ended with a tasting of 7 wines. Have heard the Private Tasting or Reserve Tasting is much more intimate. The vineyard setting is beautiful and the wines produced are quite good. Very nice gift... More

I tend to frequent this winery on my visits home. I don't usually do the private tasting, but having the opportunity to sample the select wines and special foods is really great. The staff made it more special - Everyone enjoyed.

This was our favorite stop throughout our vacation in Williamsburg. We took the Reserve Tour which included a walk around the grounds, much information about the process of making the wine, and a detailed tour of the facility including the bottling process room, barrel room and a tasting of some of their reserve wines. By far the best wine tour... More

You can enjoy a broad selection of wines in a lovely tasting room. My preference is for dry wines, so I opted for the tasting that allowed me to choose 7 from a range of dry, semi dry and sweet wines. The selection of dry wines was very good. Maria who served the wines for my tasting was very knowledgeable,... More

My husband and I travel locally a lot and we always make it a habit to the local wine if available. We only found one major place in Williamsburg and I have to say I was fairly disappointing. The winery is absolutely gorgeous and the service was ummmm available, but the wine was ok and very expensive!!!!! The tasting were... More

We had a lot of fun with friends touring the winery and tasting the delicious wines! The staff was very friendly and the winery was fascinating. We liked it enough to join their quarterly wine shipments.

We recently visited this winery and were extremely disappointed. The wine tasting table was completely chaotic as the poorer basically ran from group to group. There was only one table with four chairs for children and non-tasters. Our children ended up sitting on the floor to allow adults to sit. There were NO tables for patrons wanting to sit and...

We did the tour ($12 one) and absolutely loved it. You get to go down and sell all the oaks and learn a decent amount about the wine making process. We were told that the $12 tour is Wine 101 which was perfect for our group. Afterwards, the best part was the wine tasting – you get 6 wines (the... More

While you are in Willamsburg, make sure you tour the Willamsburg Winery. You can tour a winery in production and get to taste several of the types of wine they produce. They have a nice gift shop and wine selection for sale. If you come around lunch time, make sure you eat at the restaurant located in the complex. Great... More
