Nice time

Nothing fancy, but a nice place to pass some time away. Prices were fair. Staff was nice. Alot of wine to choose from if you find something you like.

I have never been to a vineyard or a winery. I barley knew anything about wine. It was on my bucket list to do some kind of wine tasting and I'm glad that I chose this one. It was very educational and I realized that wine is not that complicated. I will definitely be repeating these kinds of visits because... More

If you are expecting the usual top notch service and knowledge about the wines they serve as you get from most other wineries you will not get it here. My husband and I went to this winery years ago and did not like it but decided to give it a try again. Sadly, it felt just like a tourist trap.... More

This is the second time I have had the pleasure to visit the winery. My wife and I did the reserve wine tour and was pleased. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and was easy to talk to and interact with. One thing that I did notice was that the amount of wine poured at the tasting this go around... More

The tour was very informative and lead by a very knowledgeable gentleman. After the tour we tasted several of there wines. Samples showed the difference between oak barrel and stainless wines. At the end you keep the wine glass. The prices on their wines were reasonable too. The property has a restaurant which we did not visit.

We purchased a tour of the Williamsburg Winery through our Marriott vacation club property - what a buy! For $40 we received transportation to and from the Winery, a tour, a tasting (with a complimentary wineglass), and a wonderful lunch - tip included. My niece, sister, and I shared a lovely afternoon at the Winery. I liked that the staff... More

My wife and I toured the Williamsburg Winery, which lasted about 45 minutes. The price was $12 per person and included the tour and a tasting of six wines. The tour expert, Joe Scott, was very knowledgeable about The WW wines and wines in general. He answered all questions and always added interesting facts, for example, how the wines interacted...

We stopped here again this year to pick up Guvenors White to take home. Unfortunately, they were out. Heard there was a problem for 2014 and bottles were pulled and not being sold. So if you are going here for that type of wine, you should call ahead to inquire or may be disappointed like us. Still a great place....

Kristen D, Manager at Williamsburg Winery, responded to this review

We are always happy to hear from our Governor's White fans, and are sorry we were out on this guest's visit. As wine is something that can only be made in limited quantities based on harvest, etc., occasionally a wine does sell out before the next vintage is ready. To clarify a note from this guest's review, there is no... More

I had the pleasure of attending a special event on the grounds of the Williamsburg Winery and what an exceptional venue. The Winery is hidden away on a large expanse of acreage and tucked among the vineyards and trees, you could be anywhere in Europe. The ability to provide a large tent nestled amongst the buildings but away from the... More

Willliamsburg Winery lacks a talented vinter but the kitchen is top notch. My wife enjoyed a superb Cesar Sale with a crab cake on top. Ref. the crab cake, try not to puree it, leave a bit of chunk crab to recall what a real crab cake tastes like. We opted to share a "flight" of red wines,, two out... More
