Things to Do: The Williamsburg Winery

Williamsburg Winery is Virginia’s largest winery with an annual production of some 60,000 cases. With approximately 100 wineries in Virginia, the Williamsburg Winery accounts for almost one-quarter of all wine production in Virginia.

The Williamsburg Winery was established in 1985 by the Duffeler family. The first wine produced, Governor’s White, was released in 1988 and won a Gold Medal within two weeks. Today, Governor’s White is the most popular wine made at the winery. Wines produced here are appealing to a broad range of wine lovers, from the occasional wine drinker to the wine enthusiast.

The 50+ acres of vineyards which surround the winery offer a beautiful backdrop to the Old World-style village where the winery is located. Most of the wines have historical references listed on the back of each bottle. For example, Governor’s White was named after Governor Berkeley, Virginia’s first governor.

The Williamsburg Winery is open everyday except Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day and New Year’s Day. The winery may also close in the event of inclement weather.
