Fodor's Review

Carrying on a Virginia tradition of wine making that began with early settlers, Virginia's largest winery produces 60,000 cases yearly. The winery offers guided tours, a well-stocked wineshop, a 17th-century tasting room, and a museum of wine-making artifacts. Be sure to give the cabernets and merlots a try. The Gabriel Archer Tavern serves a casual lunch daily and dinner Tuesday to Saturday (April–October only). In 2007 a 28-room country inn, Wedmore Place, opened on the premises. The winery is off Route 199E. To get there, turn east on Brookwood Drive and left onto Lake Powell Road.
