Albariño Vineyard

Vinifera grapes like Petit Verdot, Merlot and Albariño have really thrived here at Wessex Hundred along with some newcomers like Tannat and Muscat.

1619 Wine Pavilion

The two-level outdoor pavilion (not pictured here) that overlooks a pair of vineyards is perfect to enjoy a flight or glass of wine while sinking into one of the comfy cushioned chairs or inviting rockers. Upper deck reserved for guests 21 and older. Live music on seasonal nights. Named for The Acte of 1619 when the House of Burgesses required colonists to grow grapes and make wine (a concept we embrace!).

Gabriel Archer Tavern

You won’t be in a rush to leave our Gabriel Archer Tavern because it’s so pleasant to stay, whether you join us indoors or sit on the brick patio underneath a splendid wisteria canopy. Almost all of the greens come from our own garden or were grown by local farmers. We choose only the freshest seafood from the Chesapeake Bay. Lunch and dinner served daily along with brunch on Sundays.
