The initial reception by staff was rather odd and not welcoming. Beautiful grounds but just not a warm feeling when you walk in. Jack led our tasting and did a great job but when other small groups walked in the noise in the room was very distracting. The wines were described accurately and they had a nice coverage of dry...

The staff and the winery are well educated in the making, storing and aging of various types of wines made at the winery. Wind sampling at the end of the paid tour!

My husband and I went on the Tour & Tasting of Reserve and Library Selections on Friday. Our guide, was very informative on the making and the tasting of the wines. Book early because this tour books up fast! The tasting is held in the basement room, so be prepared for it to be a little bit chilly.

It was great to see the grapes ready to be picked in September! We purchased 12 bottles of wine (many varieties) and with the one case you get 10% off. Nice Deal and girls were very informative. Wedding was there when we visited!

I visited this winery on a rainy weekday during a trip to Williamsburg in August. The tour was only $10 and included a rather extensive tasting and a Williamsburg Winery wine glass. Overall, the tour was a lot of fun. There weren't so many wine dunces to make the tour seemingly drag on forever and not enough true connoisseurs that... More

I am by no means a wine connesiur but I Williamsburg Winery has a great selection and variety of wines. If you want great views, you will probably go to the northern Virginia wineries, but too many of them have only one or two wines that are worth the high tasting fees. Surprisingly, the largest wine producing winery in the... More

This place is at the end of a lovely drive. The tasting room was a large store where you bought your tasting ticket( or tour and tasting, then you were escorted upstairs to a large room with a tasting bar. We chose the tasting only as we have done other tours and they are all similar. There were about 15... More

Enjoyed an afternoon at the winery. We were there during the week in February and ended up having a private tour. At the end of the tour we tasted several wines from their collection. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable.
