We have visited many wineries in many different states. This by far was unclean in the buildings! Tour guide was not very informative and rushed thru tour. He gave inaccurate information.

I have always loved visiting wineries and don't think I've ever left a decent winery with less than 6 bottles in tow...until this one. They do, in fact, have some decent wines...and the price of tasting is not, in itself, problematic...it's the overall environment. If you would like to feel like cattle being rushed through the gate...then this place is... More

We needed something to do on a cold wet day and visited the Williamsburg Winery. We got a deal on tickets through Groupon. we did miss the video at the start but really did not mind. Our guide was very knowledgeable and took us through the facility. The tasting was last and a good time. There is also a restaurant... More

We stopped here on our way back from Virginia Beach. I have always heard so many good things about the winery and their wines, so it was perfect timing for a visit. This is a different setup than any winery we have ever visited. You enter into a retail room with bottles of wine for sell. You must first buy... More

We bought the wine tour, tasting, and lunch. The tour was short, but informative. The tasting was less than generous, as the amount given to taste was less than two small sips. The lunch at the Gabriel Archer Tavern was excellent. We had the turkey and roast beef sandwiches. The turkey sandwich was amazing, combining lingonberries, apples, and roasted garlic... More

My family & I went to the Williamsburg Winery for an absolutely delightful afternoon. We opted for the "Tour, Taste, & Lunch" special, which is $35 per person. There are 2 types of tours: the general tour, which lasts about an hour, and the 2.5 hour in-depth tour. Our tickets were for the general tour. It was interesting, but if... More

Took the Tour. The Staff were friendly and nice to talk too. They were very knowledgeable of the wine process. The wine is very good and at a good price. Comparing it to the large winery's in Wash State and Cali; this place is well done. The onsite cafe is wonderful as well.

I would love to see this vineyard when all the vines are green. It was beautiful, even off season. The facility was beautiful and made you feel like you were going back in time. The staff was welcoming and pleasant. The tour..'just ok". I would have loved to see more "behind the scenes". However, evidently, there is another tour you... More
