We went to the Gabriel Archer Tavern with friends. We sat outside, and though it was warm, it was a cool, pleasant place. Our meal included the roast beef, crab, and hamburger sandwiches, Everyone enjoyed the meal and the service. We followed this with a winery and tasting tour. Well worth the visit.

We came in late, right before closing and they still gave us a personal wine tasting. They had great light summer wines. Beautiful scenery.

We were looking for something different to do in Williamsburg the wouldn't take up a lot of our time. Since we both like wine and this tour was short we said why not try it. We're glad we did. Very nice tour and our guide was very knowledgeable about the wine and the winery itself. Cost was $12.00 per people,... More

It's close to colonial Williamsburg so take a break and leave the kids at home and enjoy some local wines.

Loved this place! Very informative tour and enjoyed checking out the large cellar! The grounds are expansive as the vineyard is onsite. We lucked up with a private dinner tour with unlimited wine tasting that was pre-arranged by our resort and the food was delicious! The wines we tasted were all flavorful but my favorite was the Governors White(sweeter). The... More

My husband booked a weekend at the Wedmore Place next door to the winery as a surprise for me for my birthday. We started the weekend with the Reserve Tour on Friday afternoon. I highly recommend the tour - our guide Joe was fantastic!! It's a longer, more extensive tour. We left the property for dinner but we had lunch... More

We arrived as the doors were opening this past Saturday. Our plan was to purchase a bottle or two of our favorite wines that we had tasted on a previous visit, but, ended up with WAY more than that! The people here are VERY knowledgable about their wines and even offered us a taste of one or two that we... More

Our family stayed in the hotel next door to the winery and we got tickets for the wine tour and tasting. The winery is pretty nice, the tour was good and the wines excellent. I recommend a visit.

We did the wine tour and it was very interesting. Tour includes wine tasting and you get to keep your engraved vine glass. We also ate at the Tavern here and food was really good. Worth your time to visit.

We took a private group tour presented by our resort. We toured the wine cellar and then had dinner in the tavern on the property. The food was excellent. Salmon with avocado sauce and chicken in a blueberry and balsamic reduction. For dessert they had chocolate mousse with fresh raspberries or cheese cake. Both were very good. Not sure if... More
