About
For three centuries, our family has made our way of life in the rolling landscapes of Fauquier County, Virginia. We have proudly served as stewards of the Virginia Piedmont, a unique and special place enriched with cultural significance of sweeping historical importance. We invite you and your families to share these pastoral meadows, primordial forests, and gentle slopes lined with lush vineyards that we have called home for generations. Virginians have long identified themselves with the vine, have recognized its importance, and have consistently promoted a viable wine industry. As Virginians, grape and wine production is part of our collective cultural identity and heritage dating back as early as 1619 with the adoption of the Twelfth Act of the Original Acts of the Virginia General Assembly that required every landowner to plant and maintain ten vines. Today, what was once a dream of a few Founding Fathers has now become a reality for all to share and enjoy. Wine in moderation is an integral part of our family's heritage. At Philip Carter, our history is wine, and our future is to promote the gracious way of life through wine, art and culture. Philip Carter Winery offers the absolute perfect way for each and every person to enjoy the unique terroir and breathtaking beauty of Fauquier County. From a romantic walk through the Philip Carter vineyards to an elegant winemaker's dinner in our grand Cleve Hall or the perfect personalized, private group tasting in our King Carter suite overlooking the vineyards, our incredible family winery is sure to satisfy!

Skip this winery. The setting is nice, but the wines are mediocre. As importantly, this winery has sued Virginia to force the removal of Virginia's Mask Mandate. Nothing says you care about your customers, like putting them in an unsafe environment.

There are many good options for wine in Virginia, that also provide a safe environment for their customers. Seek those out instead.

Not only were the grounds gorgeous and still inviting and comfortable, the wine and wine tasting was fabulous. I fully appreciate not tainting the glass with water for the rinse outs and they really gave us some great detailed information about the wines and how they are made, including what grafting is. We left with a really nice barrel charcuterie board and some cherry and blueberry butters and of course a few bottles of wine. The picnic for two was also very nice with the snacks and a basket with a blanket, though we completely forgot to take our complimentary glasses with us!

This is one of my favorite wineries, so I've been here numerous times. I love when they have live music, and the Founder's Festival is always fun. I also love that I can bring my dogs with me (as long as we sit outside). They just came out with wine-filled chocolates and they are DELICIOUS!

I experience my first wine tasting event at Philip Carter, Winery of Virginia, with a Groupon deal. Our guide was wonderful she imparted her knowledge in a fun way. We got the picnic basket and we bought additional bottles for home. The picnic area is large enough with table/chairs, or you can spread blanket(s).

I had a great time at this winery. I purchased a deal on Yelp for my friend and I. The deal included a tour, wine tasting, and a picnic basket. All of it was great. We toured the vineyard and facility. There were 9 different wines to taste. My favorite with Governors. The basket included a blanket, cheese, sausage, crackers, and wine glasses. You do need to purchase your wine to drink during your picnic. At the end of the tour, you receive souvenir wine glasses. This was great and will definitely do again. They also have seasonal wine that can be included in the tasting. When I visited, they had a muled wine that was like hot cider. It was great. Definitely will be back in the spring and summer.

The wines were good, but we had a really hard time not totally walking out due to the poor hygiene of the pourer. The gentleman in his 30s would side swipe his nostril, wipe his mouse ache, then slap the rubber poured on the next wine. This happened so often that it must’ve been a nervous tick. It’s a shame because the wines were good (exclusive of the boogers we probably drank with them).

Went there for "tulip" festival, saw no tulips, went to buy tickets, sold out, employees there didn't really care, even though there was not a lot of people at the festival. Wife and I bought a glass of wine sat outside, went to get cider from one of the vendors there for the festival, was told to go inside, went inside where a bus tour just got dropped off for a tasting. Got sent back to same people from before and asked where to get cider, they said over where the wine tasting was, I stated do I have to wait there? A bus load of people just got dropped off, like 20 people the young lady says yea you have to wait.....I said it will take 30 mins! She shrugged her shoulders and said I guess so. I asked is this the only place to get a drink, she said yes. I stated I was going to just go home I didn't want to wait. She said ok goodbye. people there are rude, not our first negative experience there. Won't be back, just down the road is Chateau O'Brien, go there, better overall winery.

Stopped here when my mother in law was in town. What a fun tasting! It's a beautiful building with lots of outdoor seating. The entire staff was lovely and knowledgeable. The tasting menu was well rounded and included the VA grapes I've come to expect - chambourcin, viongier, and norton. They had an interesting port on their menu. Unfortunately they only sell bottles to club members. Will certainly come again!

Our family visited Philip Carter last week in connection with the Fauquier County Holiday Wine Trail. Our tastings included a number of solid whites and reds, ranging from superior (Governor Fauquier among the whites) to exceptional (1762, available only to wine club members). The staff members were friendly, and the grounds have excellent views of nearby fields and hills.

We have been coming here a few times a year for the last 18 months. Bring our adult children and grandchildren. View is awesome. Relax outside, or inside. Wine tasting worth the time and $$. We joined as members and really look forward to our shipments.

Relaxing way to spend a few hours. Take some wonderful pictures.
