This place lives off its name not its wine sorry but the wine wasn't great nor the charge .it is like any other winery no big deal except the name .I thought it was expensive and a tourist trap so don't go unless you are someone's guest or it is free !

We have visited our share of wineries and I was reluctant to do one of the tours as I usually find that the guests just want to get some free wine and aren't really serious. We opted for the premium tour and there were just four of us plus Bob the tour leader. The young couple with us were fairly... More

Visited the winery with my two sister and two nieces as a girls day trip. The tour of the winery was very informative and we got to see some artifacts from the winery early years. The wine was good and we got to keep our glass.

Since we were short on time but wanted to check out the wines anyway, we choose to do a wine tasting and skip the tour. The gentleman running the tasting was very knowledgeable and I actually learned a thing or two. The wine tasting also included a much heavier poor then I am used to which was nice, however this...

I attended a family wedding here recently and had to share what a wonderful venue this was for the wedding. It was charming and rustic but also elegant. The ceremony, dinner and dancing was all in a single room (that is not always the case). I thought it was perfect and easy for everyone attending. The space was well laid... More

My favorite winery in this area. If you prefer "real" wines this is the one for you. Theravada great selection of reds and whites. Not just sweets like most southern wineries.

After a late night of welcoming in the New Year, we treated ourselves to a lovely tour and tasting. Beautiful grounds and a nice selection of Virginia wines.

After a late night of New Year's Eve fun - we took a lovely informative visit to the Williamsburg Winery. A picturesque setting, on beautiful grounds, made for a nice way to welcome in the New Year!

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
