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

Recently, we visited the Williamsburg Winery, Williamsburg Virginia for the first time. The tour and the tasting session were conducted quite professionally. Sales staff in the gift shop were courteous and helpful. We enjoyed a cheese board and a bottle of the new Dry Rose at an adjoining restaurant. Both were excellent.

We have been to the Williamsburg Winery three times now. It is a quaint little winery and the wine tasting is a pleasant experience, although a little rushed. I would have liked more time to savour the different wines. However, some of the wines are really nice and smooth and others not so much. Everyone has different tastes so my... More

Wow... what a hidden gem. Such a romantic place to visit. A must see for anyone that has a love of wine, the elegance of vineyards, and the luxury of being pampered by an incredible staff. I can't believe I never visited this little sanctuary. We finally made it up and attended the Adagio Launch Party and between the impeccable... More

We have been to several wineries in different states for wine tasting so we knew what to expect. This winery did not have enough help to serve the number of customers the day we were there. The wine tasting fee was reasonable but we were not impressed by their wine, the personality of the server, or the facility. We thought... More

Great tour- the guide was very knowledgeable and a nice variety of wines for tasting. We brought 2 bottles and some peanuts from the quaint gift shop and had lunch outside at the tavern next door.

Spent afternoon doing a tour and tasting at Williamsburg winery. Used money off coupon from local tourist brochure. Excellent tour. Learned a lot from intelligent and articulate guide. Followed by tasting of a wide selection of their wines. Nothing pretentious about it but excellent experience. Very good value even at full price.

This winery is the largest in Williamsburg. Our tour guide was very informative as to how wine was made. You would be amazed when you see the barrels of wine and the distillery down in the basement. At the end of the tour you will get to sample 7 different wines. This is the second time we went on this... More
