Throughout the year we offer these wine experiences:

The Vintage Virginia Tasting
$20.00 per person, by reservation only.
From the directive of Acte 12 in Colonial Williamsburg to the opening ceremonies of Philip Carter Winery in 2008 wine in Virginia was a foregone conclusion. Through an in depth look at wine through the centuries, this experience provides insight, history and taste. Wines from key vineyard across Virginia tell a beautiful story of culture, purpose and promise. As Philip Carter Winery anticipates the 250th Anniversary of the medal awarded to the Carter family in 1762 by the Royal Society of Arts in London for the first successful attempt at winemaking in America we are proud to promote a tasting that brings attention to those wineries who have led the industry in positioning Virginia as an international wine destination. This educational opportunity re-emphasizes our commitment to Virginia Wines and to their promotion. Special event. Sign up for our mailing list to be notified.
