Follow the driving directions carefully to find this wonderful winery. It is about a 15-minute trip from Colonial Williamsburg, if you make every turn properly. We arrived for a sunset wine tasting and dinner. Fantastic! The rich red wines and the sweet whites make it hard to believe this winery has only been open since 1985. Telephone ahead to book tours April through October, and to get those directions. The rich Virginia soil is idea for growing wines with modern methods, creating the success that Thomas Jefferson could only dream about in his day. The prices of the wine by the bottle are quite reasonable, so consider making some purchases to enjoy at home.www.williamsburgwinery.com Our tasting was in the Gabriel Archer Tavern which has been featured in the New York Times. Our food was wonderful. The environment of the vineyard is beautiful and extremely green. Put this winery on your "must-do" list if you enjoy fine wines.
