The Williamsburg Winery is a hidden gem here in the historic triangle of Virginia. It sits on 300 acres known as Wessex hundred. Hundred was used in the colonial times to describe a piece of land mass that was capable of supporting a hundred families regardless of the amount of land it was.
The Winery has several tours and tastings daily to include the basic for around $10 per person, these tours are held hourly in the large tasting room. They also offer the reserve tour and tasting which will cost you about $36 a person and be held in the private cellar twice per day. You can add lunch to either one for an additional sum. No matter which you choose, both are well worth the price.
The Winemaker at the Williamsburg Winery is Matthew Meyer, born in Great Britain, Matthew learned to appreciate wines from his father. Matthew attended one of the world’s premier wine schools and obtained a double degree in Oenology and Viticulture.
After enjoying one of the tours and tastings offered by the winery, stop by the wine retail shop to pick up some great gifts for folks on your holiday gift list. Also look into their wine clubs, and remember the winery does ship to many states if you don’t have room in your luggage!
Your dining choices at the vineyard are the Cafe Provencal, located poolside at Wedmore Place, an amazing adventure of food and wine, and the more casual Gabriel Archer Tavern which boosts a collaboration of simple & quality food with a casual dining experience.
From the Author: Call as far ahead for reservations as you can if you wish to do the reserve tour and tasting, they do book up.
