My husband and I visited overThanksgiving weekend. One of the worst winery tasting experience ever. Terrible service with very small pours. Not,with the time or money. Better off going to the cheese shop in town for wine and cheese.

A few months ago, my wife and I were hitting the wineries all the way from Yorktown to Williamsburg. Had a routine tour and tasted some wines and bought a few cases. A few weeks later, returned with another couple and went overboard with a white we liked. Running low and will return in a few weeks. Good thing we... More

I visited this past weekend from Virginia Beach with my mother. I've been wanting to try it for the longest time and am glad I did, although I am not a huge fan of their actual wines. I've tasted a few of them at wine tastings before and wasn't impressed either, but thought I'd try out the local winery. I... More

This is a busy weekend winery. I would've done the reserve tasting, but that was at least a 45 minute wait. Once called for the regular tasting, you enter a big room with a rectangle tasting counter. You step up to the counter and wait. Our pourer was wonderful, despite being expected to pour for a ridiculous number of folks... More

My husband and I went with another couple while on vacation. The wine tasting was very enjoyable. The staff are knowledgeable and fun. We all have different tastes in wine, and all found wine that we enjoyed. They have an extensive variety from dry to sweet, red to white wines. Would definitely recommend a visit, a tasting and buying some... More

The Williamsburg Winery provides a well informed and thorough tasting/tour for both wine novices and connoisseurs. The reserve wine tasting experience was one of the best tastings I've had.

Nice winery with gracious helpings during the tasting. They have an onsite tour which we didn't take but others seemed pleased with. Pretty cool tasting room with a wide selection.

We have done this tour many, many times and each time we learn something new. Our guide this time, Allison, was so very informative. She explained using a vintner's lingo and then would explain in layman's terms. Her analogies were very apropos and gave us a better appreciation of everything from a vintner's point of view down to the final... More
