Wine tourism continues to grow throughout the commonwealth, especially at wineries that offer a complete lodging, food and wine experience to guests.
The Williamsburg Winery at Wessex Hundred is one of Virginia’s destination wineries offering excellent food and wine at two restaurants on the property (Café Provençal and the Gabriel Archer Tavern). They recently announced a new culinary team at Wessex Hundred with the addition of Ian Robbins as executive chef and Troy Buckley as chef de cuisine of Café Provençal.
Robbins has worked with renowned chefs such as Daniel Boulud in New York City, Charlie Trotter in Chicago, and Michel Richard at Citronelle in Washington, D.C., and most recently served as executive chef of Millie’s Diner, the landmark eatery in Richmond.
