Bought for my wife as a girls-days-out with her friends; she loved it. The tour was good and the meat and cheese picnic basket was generous. She said the wine was decent too ;)

First impression was pretty bad. We walked into the main entrance and filled out our paperwork for the wine tour. While we were waiting to start, a couple walked up to the counter and didn't get acknowledged for almost 10 minutes. During that time, the staff helped roughly 6-8 other people but not them. The couple didn't even get a glance from the staff behind the counter. One of the girls behind the counter answered the phone and was rolling her eyes and sighing while on the phone. It was a poor display of customer service and quality. Once our tour finally started, 15 minutes after the scheduled start time, the guide was amazing. He was very knowledgeable and passionate about giving us a great experience. He answered any questions we could throw at him and wasn't afraid to say he was unsure of an answer, big points in my book instead of giving us a bunch of crap information. The wine was rather good. I believe there was only one wine that I did not like.

Look on the map before you go, because the gps detoured us and brought us to the wrong destination at one point.

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.
