The tour of the winery was excellent and very informative. Fascinating view of all the steps needed to create quality red and white wine varieties. We also enjoyed the tasting portion very much. The three white wines, three red wines, and the dessert wine were well differentiated for our enjoyment. We will return here again, especially when we have friends... More

They have several different tours available. We found a tour on-line called the Library Reserve tour. Having done the reserve tasting before, we decided to take this tour tough it was $40 each. It was worth every penny! We were given a tour of the fields and shown how they take care of the grapes, and shown through the entire... More

We opted to take the tour. We received complimentary wine glasses and a tour of the entire facility. Our guide was very knowledgeable. She taught us the process from A-Z. At Z you are tasting the wine. Great blends of reds and whites. My mother and I bought Governers white. My 10 year old was along for the tour and... More

My wife and I visited the winery for the first time this past weekend and had a wonderful time. Lori, our tour guide, really made the experience enjoyable with her knowledge and humor, which really helped to relax the group and encourage the asking of questions. If you have an opportunity to visit, I highly recommend tagging along in her... More

I went to the winery to buy gifts for friends and wound up at the tasting so that I would know what I was buying. The staff was absolutely wonderful. Helpful, friendly, and knowledgeable. Not consescending though I obviously don't know a lot about wine. While I didn't love every sample, I found many that I adore. Instead of 3... More

Since this was our first Tour and Tasting, maybe we aren't the best judge. But we found it informative and a great experience to try these local wines. Close to Williamsburg, this will make a great afternoon short trip from town.

My wife and I didn't think the reserve wines were all that great especially for $15 per person for the reserve tasting. They were only two on the list we would consider buying. The service was also extremely slow and forgetful. I'm glad we didn't spend more time or money. The wine we bought was not on the list. However... More

I purchased my tickets online for the lunch, tour and tasting. It was a great deal! We went on father's day around 1130am. It was a beautiful day. We had brunch outside which was delicious. Brunch included a glass of wine as well. We did the tour after we ate. Since it was early in the day we got to... More

My friend's granddaughter wanted to visit the winery while in Williamsburg. There was four of us. We did the tour and did the wine tasting. The guide was very knowledgeable and we gained a new appreciation for wine making process. We took home some of our favorites. I would recommend this stop if you are in Williamsburg.

With a group of guests who traveled from Arizona, Georgia, North Dakota & Minnesota we made our way to the Williamsburg Winery to take in both the tour & a tasting but were told we had to choose between the two, that it was necessary to come back at a later date for what we opted out of? This can't... More
