Located on the historic 300-acre Wessex Hundred farm, the Williamsburg Winery offers the opportunity to taste, dine, stay, and relax. Three different tasting options are available. Tours of the barrel cellar are offered daily. An extensive tour with reserve and library wine tasting is also available by advance reservation. Winemaker Matthew Meyer produces 25+ wines annually including the new Wessex Hundred series of estate grown wines. The 2010 Adagio, a premium Bordeaux-style red blend, won the 2014 Governor's Cup for best wine in Virginia.
Adjacent to the winery, the Gabriel Archer Tavern serves up delicious simplicity focusing on fresh, locally sourced ingredients. Lunch is served Monday through Saturday with Sunday Brunch also available. Indoor seating overlooks the vineyard, and outdoor seating is under a canopy of wisteria.
Wedmore Place, a 28 room country hotel, is also located on the farm. Each room is uniquely decorated with antiques and art from a different European region. This secluded getaway features a wood-burning fireplace and a king-sized bed in every room. Inside the hotel is the Cafe Provencal, a fine dining restaurant that serves dinner Tuesday through Sunday evenings. Come in and let Wessex Hundred Executive Chef Ika Zaken prepare a delicious Mediterranean-inspired meal for you and your guests. Reservations are strongly recommended.
