We love to visit this winery when we come to Williamsburg. This year, we came for the reserve wine tasting. First we stopped at the Gabriel Archer Tavern next door for lunch, which I recommend you do if you have the time. The tasting was fun, and the staff was knowledgable and able to answer a variety of questions. You... More

This was an unplanned stop in our travels, our children were with us and we were unsure of the Winery's policies but we are so pleased that we stopped. The staff was wonderful and allowed the children and no charge to take the tour of the winery with us. We did do a wine tasting as the end of the... More

The staff is knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly. We sampled several wines, and found more than one to our liking. The atmosphere was relaxed, and we friendly conversation with other tasters. It was a very nice way to spend a rainy afternoon.

Pros; nice drive into winery. Good staff. Clean location. 25% off coupon in most tourist books. Sampled six wines, plus bonus wine and toured for $15, for two guests. Good wine, made from local area. Cons; watch the hours of tours, almost missed it.

This is a beautiful Winery with a very friendly, helpful and informed staff! Our tour guide was amazing-very informative and took any and all questions at each stop. There's a short video before the tour starts and then you follow the guide and learn about the whole history and wine making process. The tasting was equally enjoyable. We bought six... More

My wife and I did the tour and the wine tasting, we are not wine drinkers but we gave it a try anyway. The tour was average, but it did not cover the wine making process in much detail. The wine tasting was OK. The wines we tasted were not pleasing to my palate. We tasted 6 or 8 wines,... More

For a few $$ extra the reserve tour and tasting is worth it. Bob, our guide was knowledgeable without being pretentious, as well as entertaining. He paid attention to details and was gracious to answer all our questions! We tasted wines available for sale but also wines that were only in the library that the regular tour did not cover....

My girlfriend an I took the tour and did the reserve wine tasting. Our guide was very knowledgeable, interesting and entertaining. We tasted some amazing wines not available for the normal tour. The restaurant on site provided us with some amazing cheese and sandwiches too. We sat under a trellis with beautiful green plants interwoven throughout. We also walked around... More
