The Williamsburg Winery is located just minutes from Historic Colonial Williamsburg with over 50 acres of vineyards surrounding the winery and tavern. The winery resembles a European village in the Old World Style. It is Virginia’s largest winery, producing over 50,000 cases of wine annually. Tours of the facility and wine tastings are held daily by the professionally trained staff members. The guided tour at $7.00 per person includes a video presentation on grape growing (Viticulture) and winemaking (Oenology) followed by a walk through the barrel cellar and a visit to the production area. In the museum you will see a collection of unique and rare vintage wine bottles. The tour is completed with a tasting of seven wines which are served to you in an etched wine glass that you may take home as a keepsake. Wines are available for purchase in the gift shop. The Gabriel Archer Tavern, situated among the vineyards, serves lunch daily from 11 am – 4 pm with main courses under $10.00. You can dine indoors or, weather permitting, on the outside terrace with a view of the beautiful countryside.
