    Easily one of my most favorite places to visit in Williamsburg. There is a wide variety of wines to choose from including different vintages, varietals, and price points, so there is a wine for everyone. The fine wine tasting is great to try the less expensive wines and ones you would see in local supermarkets. The reserve is great for more bold and dry wines you don't typically see in stores. They're always adding new wines to choose from, so there's always something to try. And the two tours they offer are a lot of fun and very educational, plus you get wine at the end! Everyone that works there is friendly and knowledgeable, and I have never had a bad experience. If you're a local, the winery offers a lot of events throughout the year, especially around holidays. A must do if you come to Williamsburg.

    This was the single worst wine tasting we've experienced, and we've done many. The wines are WAY overpriced and overrated. The cost of a tasting is signicantly overpriced. Even more disturbing is the arrogant attitude we received at the front desk upon arrival. Not once did we get the feeling we were special or welcomed. The tasting bar, while attempting to create a rustic, old world effect came off as cheap. The wineries in PA, upstate NY, California, and Ontario Canada are far superior. Don't waste your time or money here.

    This was probably the best tour and tasting I've ever been on. Our tour guide Rusty was amazing and the tasting was fun with great wine! The tour is definitely worth the extra $2 if you have the time, and the restaurant was a great lunch spot whether you go into the winery or not.

    We did the tour, tasting and lunch combo during our visit. The wine was great and the food was even better! Can't wait to go back

Where to stay in Williamsburg

Williamsburg offers lodgings for every taste, including four-star resorts, quaint inns, and budget-friendly hotels. Accommodations in the city's historical district provide easy access to all of the area's major attractions, but they also charge much higher prices than equally comfortable guesthouses in some of the outlying neighborhoods. For a genuine Virginian experience, consider pitching a tent or renting a cottage in one of the area's popular campgrounds, which offer shuttle services to the city's major attractions and provide free Wi-Fi, cable TV, and fenced-in areas for pets.
