Experience the Winery - The Williamsburg Winery

An unforgettable wine and culinary experience awaits at the Williamsburg Winery, a pioneer in crafting Virginia wine since 1985.

Here we share our unbridled passion for good wine and lasting friendships, our appreciation for a history of the people and places before us and a respect for the land that requires our daily stewardship. Some 376 years after the first British Settlement in the New World began, our story started.

Come see how it turned out.

Tours and Wine Flights

We’d love to share our private wine cellar with you as part of our Extensive Winery Tour that includes the chance to sample some of our reserve selections. Or experience one of our flights by enjoying a tasting in Susan Constant Hall. When you visit, don’t forget to stop by our retail shop for a vast selection of wines and artisan foods.

1619 Wine Pavilion

The two-level outdoor pavilion that overlooks vineyards is perfect to enjoy a 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.
