The assigned tour guide let our tour several times to work on the register & ended up not finishing the tasting. A makeshift guide was assigned after complaints & several guests being left for long periods of time. There was absolutely no excuse for the lack of good service & bad management. We ended up leaving early & without the picnic essentials that were supposed to be included with the tour.

It said picnic and wine tasting for 2. However only one us was drinking. I was offered a soda that was mainly sugar and water. The picnic was a 4oz piece of cheese and some Ritz crackers. I would not recommend the tour, tasting, picnic. Scenery was nice. I think just wine tasting and a bring your own picnic is the way to go.

This was the most amazing experience ever. My husband and I had a great time. This is pet friendly. I was thinking about bringing my dog but decided not to. I’m glad I did because it allowed me to enjoy the tour and come indoors to do the wine tasting. This was such a romantic time. I will be coming back, but next time with my girl friends. This is a great outing. Everything was really great.

About Philip Carter Winery

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. 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.
