Williamsburg Local Customs: 60 reviews and 75 photos

by matcrazy1

Early colonists drank wine in Williamsburg, at the beginning imported from Europe (expensive), then local. Wine is produced in Williamsburg since the early colonial times in 17th century when the law ordered each settler to plant at least 10 vines for the purpose of making wine on his own land.

That's why I saw 7 local different kinds of wine in old-fashionable colonial M. Dubois Grocer in Colonial Williamsburg. They were produced by the Williamsburg Winery which I unfortunately didn't visit :-(.
