Spring return to regular operating hours – April thru December 2023

Beginning on Friday, April 7th, we have resumed our regular operating hours: Friday 4:00 PM to 8:00 PM; Saturday and Sunday 11:00 AM to 6:00 PM.

Group Tastings

We have come to appreciate the adverse impact of group tastings upon our patrons. The size of our wine tasting room is easily overwhelmed by large groups. In the Winter months (JAN-MAR) we add Wednesdays and Thursdays (Noon ‘til 4:00 PM) to our regular hours. We are accepting reservations for group wine tastings on those days. Group wine tastings are also available on Saturdays and Sundays. Any group of 10 or more requires reservations, and the last group tasting reservation available on Saturdays and Sundays is 1:00 PM.


As a family farm winery, we have welcomed children since our first day of operations in 2014. The vast majority of patrons who are accompanied by children are respectful of the serene atmosphere sought by other guests. Unhappily, we are encountering an increase in unsupervised children whose behavior is unacceptable to those around them. If you choose to bring children, they must remain in your company at all times. Due to a recent fire pit incident at Colonial Williamsburg, children are not permitted at the firepit………regrets.

Responsible Tasting

Lastly, we have learned that denying service to customers who have been over-served upon arrival begets retribution in the form of negative ratings. We have a legal and moral obligation to deny service when a guest has consumed too much. It is a judgement call we take very seriously and without apology.

The Farm

Mo and Sandi Gauthier purchased their “Fair Winds” farm in 2010. Like most ground in the county, the farm is rich in history. Local relic hunters have validated its service as a Civil War encampment for both Union and Confederate forces during the lengthy Peninsula Campaign.
