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!

We visited this winery last month and were pleasantly surprised. They have a nice selection of wines in every category. All were very good and smooth, without any after burn or bite. Each wine had a distinctive taste all its own and they were all delightful from the first bouquet to the afterglow. Our guide was very knowledgeable and patient,... More

There is plenty of space if you want to sit inside, but there is also quite a bit of outdoor seating too. This is one of the few wineries where you can get right up close to the grapes and see their vineyards. The tasting is very good, and the woman who did ours was very friendly and knowledgeable.

...what else do you need? The prices were reasonable, lots of seating inside and out. But the story of the winery was very cool, and the staff was very accommodating.

Really enjoy this place. The wines are good (particularly the rose) and the environment is very relaxing. Go there when they have music!

My husband and I stopped here for a quick wine tasting on our road trip. With our 8 month old daughter. It was a a great environment. The staff was friendly and respectful. The wine was remarkable! There was no pressure to buy an exorbitant amount of wine after our tasting. We will be returning!

I had made a reservation to use a gift certificate that we bought at a charity event. The certificate indicated a tasting, vineyard tour and picnic basket for two. I made the reservation well in advance and we showed up as requested. We had decided to pass on the tour since we have done it in the past and instead... More
