Arrived during my wine tour with my best friend. We both had great expectations about this winery because it is local to where I live. When we walked in we noticed nobody was at the front desk and we waited around 15 mins until someone finally came out. The young man asked which tastings we wanted to do. I was... More

My wife and I visited Williamsburg winery and found that besides the very good quality red and white wines, the tasting being offered by Connie was really informative. We thought we knew quite a bit about wine tasting, but Connie had some tips we had not heard before even in wineries outside of Virginia, like Sonoma, Napa, and Spain. We... More

I've been on the winery tour before, but I thought this tour was much better. We had a different guide, a tall gentleman who was very informative, personable and knowledgeable. He also had some good jokes. The tasting is well done as always. I find the tour to be a good value when you consider you are given a tasting... More

We visited the winery for the first time the Wednesday in between Christmas and New Year's. We have done wine tastings throughout the state of Virginia and this was the worst one we have ever done. Not because the wine was terrible but the process and set up. When you come in you have the option of a tour and... More

My husband and I visit the winery every time we come to Williamsburg and we just love it! We were a bit crunched for time this trip and were absolutely thrilled to find that they have a temporary tasting room right in Merchant Square. Staff was super friendly and we were able to do a tasting and purchase our bottles... More

Each time we come to Williamsburg we take a tour and tasting. This year we were fortunate to have Connie and she provided the best wine tour we've been to. We learned so much and she was very helpful. We decided to join the club and get wine each quarter. The wine is amazing.

We had Allison as our tour guide for the second time. And she was amazing! She really broke down the wine tasting and made it easier to understand. Especially for a beginner. We even brought our family member to Williamsburg winery just to let her take a tour from Allison! We will be visiting again soon! We would recommend her... More

We love the wine at the Williamsburg winery and anytime in the area we make it a point to stop. With kids now we had to do the reserve tasting that was great, but if you have the time do the private tasting ( library wines, cheese, in the cellar). After your tasting take a walk over the Gabriel Archer... More

I've drank many bottles of Williamsburg Winery offerings and decided since I was in the area to give it a shot. Booked the $12 wine tour and tasting. Excellent information and wonderful to see the building and see more of the wine process. Enjoyed the half an hour wine tasting and the tour guide was awesome. She really made the... More

We did the tour and tasting since the price was very reasonable. Our tour guide was amazing! She made it Very easy to understand the wine making process. The tasting was enjoyable (you get to go into a private tasting room if you pay for the tour & tasting). All of their wines are very reasonable in price and enjoyable... More
