Wines were OK if not a tad expensive for the better wines. It's a fairly big property and they have an extensive gift shop. You will pay for your tasting first. We bought a bottle of merlot to take home.

it's my first time in VA and i have to say this is a must do and must see. I like wine but am not hardcore but I learned a lot during the tour and got to taste different kind of wine. The guide was accomodating and nice.

Great way to spend a couple of hours. Informative and quick tour, tasting was fun and insightful. Served crackers and cheese during 7 rather generous samples, got to include the wine glass, and lunch was included in our package. The Lunch was fabulous! Great service and food. Heartily recommend

This winery is spectacular. We did the tour and tasting with Allison. She was incredibly knowledgable and wonderfully entertaining. She answered all of our questions during the tour. She gave us all kinds of helpful hints during the tasting. (Thanks for the cheese tip!) We are super thrilled that you ship to Illinois, and we look forward to doing more... More

While making my first visit to the Williamsburg area I made an end of the day visit to do a tasting. The server, Josh, did a nice job of explaining the wines and making sure I got to sample the types of wine I typically enjoy. I found their wines to be of good quality and very reasonably priced. I... More

Our group of nine wanted to try Virginia wines in their natural habitat, a tasting room attached to a winery. We travel up and down California doing this, and Virginia seemed to have many good choices. Williamsburg Winery came out on the top of the list as a place to visit, but we were disappointed with the tasting room personnel... More

We appreciate this guest's feedback. The Reserve Room was created after many requests from our guests and Wine Club Members for a more elevated experience for the reserve tasting. This is a fairly common practice throughout Virginia as well as California and Washington. In order to create a safe and comfortable environment for our guests as well as adhering to... More

In addition to the winery tour, we were seated in the wine cellar room and provided a sampling of select reserve wines while being able to partake of cheese, meats, and breads/crackers. A really unique way to learn about what makes wines different.

I recently did a Virginia wine tour and the first stop was the Williamsburg Winery. The winery is beautiful, but what I enjoyed the most was the information that I learned. I have been on several wine tours and they are usually quick and appropriate but I feel like our tour guide provided fun and great tips and information for... More
