First day of school

The Williamsburg Winery



Today we took a tour of the Williamsburg winery (via a groupon!) It is a 300 acre farm, know as Wessex Hundred. In 1983 the winery was opened and they had their first bottle of wine in 1987. They are said to make some of the best wines in the world.

The tour was lovely - it started with a 30 minute tour including the area where they kept the red barrels and white steel drums. Our guide was very good an really knew his information! Then we had a 30 minute tasting of seven different wines (3 white wines, 3 red wines and either a dessert wine or a spiced wine). We had a lovely time! We then had lunch at the winery cafe.

A wonderful day!
