If you'd like to see the vineyards and the cellars, you can add a tour to your reservation. Enjoy a meal at the Gabriel Archer Tavern or the Cafe Provencal.

  • Apparently, a visitor can take a tour and partake in a wine tasting. I just stopped through the gift shop and picked up a couple of bottles of wine. It seems like an old historic building and there ar...  more »

  • My girlfriend and I took the Extensive Tour and Reserve Tasting. It was interesting and we got to see some cool stuff. We spent most of the time in the cellar, which is where we had our tasting (paired with cheese, bread, and crackers). Our guide was very nice. The staff was also very nice and informative. They helped us pick out some wines based on pairings and preferrence. After the tasting we walked over to the tavern for some food, which was really good, as well. Overall, it was an enjoyable experience. I would recommend visiting.
  • Always a solid venue with exceptional wines, knowledgeable staff and tasty food in their restaurant. The tastings are amazing and informative (especially if you are a member). Their whites and reds are truly great, the Adagio and Gabriel Archer being my favs. I recommend visiting this winery at least once in your lifetime. Thanks for the stellar consistency, we will be back to see you guys soon!!
  • The Williamsburg Winery is one of my favorite places in Williamsburg. When we lived in the area we were a part of the wine club and oh boy was it a good deal. Whenever we had family visiting we would be sure to bring them in for a tasting, everyone always loved it. Also, the wine socials were a blast! Definitely my favorite part of being a member. If we ever move back to the area I will definitely become a member again. My husband who doesn't even really like wine always had a great time, too!
  • Was visiting Virginia Beach when the weather turned nasty - so took the hour drive to Willamsburg Winery to sample the wines in Virginia. Was not sure what to expect, but it turned out to be a great afternoon. Took the tour which included tasting and was able to learn a lot about local wines and some tips on tasting and serving wine as well. Ended up staying and visiting the restaurant as well. Definitely worth the trip - and brought home 6 bottles!
  • The Williamsburg Winery is the perfect place to get married. It was the first venue I visited and after I met Kari, the wedding coordinator there, I knew I was in good hands. She was so professional and trustworthy, I knew the Winery was the place I wanted to book. Plus, the spaces are so flexible in how they can be used and decorated--and EVERYTHING is included! Book the Winery if you want a stress-free wedding!
