We had a great time at this winery. The server was knowledgeable about the wines and was very friendly. Afterwards, we all joined their wine club and had lunch at Gabriel Archer Tavern. All in all a wonderful day.

One of our foursome is handicapped, and the staff was very helpful in taking him on the tour with us and getting him to the tasting room. Very knowledgeable and friendly staff, good wine.

To be quite honest, not a big wine fan. But always love the vibe and scenery of a winery. Tasting was nice, lot of diversity. Lunch was great. Had the burger... Awesome!

Williamsburg Winery or Amber Ox? (4 Replies)
Hello, My husband and I will be spending a long weekend in Williamsburg in March. We arrive Friday afternoon and would like to visit a local winery, brewery, distillery, or brewpub for tastings and dinner. We’re flexible on which way to go but would love to try something that’ll give us a taste of the area. Recommendations?? Thank you!!

I am a fan of the Williamsburg Winery. You could do a tasting/tour and enjoy lunch at the Gabreil Archer Tavern at the Winery. However, I haven't been to the Amber Ox.

Williamsburg in September (3 Replies)
This will be my husband's first trip to Williamsburg and my second since I was a child. We were curious about some things first, we were considering staying at the Days Hotel across the street from Water Country - any comments? Second - We were playing on going to Busch Gardens - but we understand that it's Howl O' Scream time?? During the day does this change the normal atomsphere of the park - will we still be able to enjoy the normal things offered or are they changed to the...More

The Days Inn across the street from Water Country is a good place - CLEAN too. Don't worry too much about the Halloween theme during the day in September, you will see a change from 'normal' but still be able to enjoy what the park offers. I have taken the tour of the winery here and also one near charlottesville. My personal feeling is, if you have been to one then you could skip the others. The difference here is of course location location location. The farmland and buildings at the...More

Hello, I'm thinking you would like both Jamestown Settlement, (new exibits this year) and Jamestowne Island, (new archearium, new exibits), and after all, this is THE BIG YEAR!!!! You might see the diggers doing some archeological work on the Island. They've always been there everytime I went. It is so interesting and they love to talk about their work. You have a tough decision with only 3 days. We're going for 5 full days in May, and we had a really hard time deciding on what to do. My...More
