Disappointed. The selection of local foods, was a block of cheese from Vermont, and a tiny sleeve of Ritz crackers. Not pleased. We were also required to give our credit card until we returned the basket/blanket, as if we were going to steal it.

Tasted 9 wines. Played cornhole. Bought a bottle white wine. Relaxing afternoon.

The wine was great...the picnic a waste of money. The groupon says that you get meats and cheese and we did not receive any meat. We did purchase some after being told it wasn't included. The cheese was Sargento cheese (why not supply local cheese like all the other wineries in the area), the crackers were RITZ crackers, and the meat we did purchase was so hard that we could hardly slice it with the steak knife provided. We ended up going to Barrel Oak Winery afterwards just to get some of their brick oven pizza because the picnic was so underwhelming.

From Our Editors

Bearing the surname of the wealthy, 17th-century Virginian Robert "King" Carter, owner Philip Carter Strother—Robert’s direct descendant and a 12th-generation Virginian—strives to keep his family’s deep winemaking roots alive at Philip Carter Winery. Robert’s sons, Charles and Landon, made wine from the grapes they cultivated on the grounds of their plantation in the mid 1700s, driven by a 1619 law that required all Virginian landowners to maintain at least 10 vines and one three-cornered hat. But the Carters took it further than that, eventually planting 1,800 vines along the banks of the Rappahannock River by 1754.

Fast-forward more than 250 years to 2008, when 27 acres overlooking the rolling Blue Ridge Mountains were purchased. There, Philip Carter Strother would oversee the planting of 1,800 vines in a symbolic nod to his ancestors. Today, daily tastings, educational sessions, tours, and corkscrew lessons take place to let guests peruse the vineyard's rousing [collection of vintages] that helped garner the honors of a Gold for Best Wine Tour in Virginia and Silver for Best Winery in Virginia from Virginia Wine Lover Magazine (http://gr.pn/LS3IXr). Acclaimed wines include the full-bodied flagship 2010 Cleve blend, winner of a 2013 Virginia Governor's Cup gold medal, the 2011 Gov. Fauquier chardonnay, and the bright, acidic 2012 Rosewell.
