Though this winery is only 4 miles south of central Williamsburg, travelers describe it as a decent daytrip and a break from the numerous historical sites in town. The 320-acre winery features Old World- and New World-style wines and grows plenty of grape varietals, including merlot, cabernet franc, malbec, vidal blanc and viognier. The winery offers basic tours and tastings, in addition to more elaborate experiences; there's also an on-site retail shop for those interested in taking home some vino as well.

Recent visitors said the atmosphere makes for an enjoyable outing and many said they loved the varied wines in the tastings (and how affordable a standard tasting is). However, wine connoisseurs were a little disappointed with the quality of the wine and some mentioned the bottles in the retail shop were overpriced.

Hours vary by season, but the winery is generally open from 10 or 11 a.m. until 4:30 to 6 p.m. Fine wine tastings cost $8 per person and no appointment is necessary for groups smaller than eight. Tours and tastings are available for $12 per person and the tour and tasting with lunch costs $35 per person. Visit Williamsburg Winery's official website for further information on schedules, wines and tastings.
