Went with a group of friends to the winery. We had lunch at the Gabriel Archer Tavern on the grounds of the winery. Very tempting menu. After lunch we did the wine tasting. There were two choices - one was your choice of seven wines for $9 or a special tasting of five wines for $15. Through the end of... More

As a local in very familiar with their wines but this was my first visit to the winery. One thing I really liked was that they let you pick 7 wines to taste off their list so you can avoid ones you know are your type. Also each person in your party can pick different wines. I skipped the ones... More

You have to stand for the tasting. Stools would be so nice. It was hard for us to stand that long and not be in pain. A Midsummer Night's White was my favorite. It is also not accessible by wheelchair.

Virginia has a lot of nice wineries. This one near the tourist attraction of Williamsburg is worth a visit. Has some very nice tasting rooms. Some only open to wine club members at various levels of membership. The staff is knowledgeable and gracious. On a recent Saturday the place was busy, but not too crowded. Tasted some wines and bought... More

We visited several wineries on this vacation and the Williamsburg Winery was our favorite for the atmosphere, the wines and the glasses. The tasting room was in an old building with plenty of room around a large bar and with a couple of folks serving the wine and entertaining the crowd with stories of the wines. We returned home with... More

We had a great time toeing the property. The tour was interesting and the wine tasting was also fun. Liked some of the wines very much. Some not so much. Left with a small private stock of my favorites. The desert wines were a special treat. We had fun getting lunch too.

I must say after reading the reviews, we almost didn't go and upon getting there we almost didn't stay. The place is absolutely gorgeous and puts you in mind of a chalet. When we entered the store and bought our tickets for the tour, the lady was a little curt and told us that the kids better not touch anything... More

I've been to the Williamsburg Winery multiple times over the years. Most recently was for a reserve tour that was very enlightening and well done. We had a great time - private (ish) room, lots of great wines along with fruit, cheese and bread. I learned a lot on the tour. We've also done regular tours which are nice- many... More

Once you enter the property you drive back past multiple vineyard fields to get to their building which fits the Williamsburg charm. We did the reserve tasting. The tasting room was very basic but then again - they are maintaining the colonial atmosphere. Our server was very knowledgeable and we were given generous pours. We also got to keep the... More
