Williamsburg may well be best known for its indelible footprint

in the history of our country, but there is yet another movement emerging which will, again, define this area:  food and wine.

From our bountiful on-site garden to our relationships with some of Virginia's finest food producers, Wessex Hundred offers a true farm-to-farm dining experience.  It is our mission to celebrate the flavors that define Coastal Virginia while simultaneously showcasing the world-class bounty from throughout the entire Commonwealth.  Your unforgettable culinary adventure awaits at Wessex Hundred.

The Gabriel Archer Tavern is nestled among the vineyards with a beautiful countryside view.  Savor a glass of wine and a delicious cheese and meat platter featuring an assortment of local ingredients served with a French baguette, lingonberry preserves and cornichon, or one of our handcrafted sandwiches served with a mixed green salad.

Escape to the farm at Wessex Hundred and enjoy the culinary craftsmanship of our culinary team as their preparations delight your senses and complement the wines that Kevin Zraly considers to be ‘some of the best wines in the world.’ Locally-sourced fish and vegetables ensure that your meal will be fresh and flavorful.  Local wines are also featured, together with an extensive list of choices from around the world.

"The best part of my job is getting to work with local farmers, agri-artisans, and watermen to source the freshest local ingredients possible to support our two restaurants and our in-house catering division.  I love collaborating with Matthew and the winemaking team to bring uniquely delicious wine and food pairings to our guests. Working at The Williamsburg Winery is a dream come true."

- Chef David McClure
