Kingsmill’s Wine and Cheese Shop Closes After More Than 35 Years

A York County shop that has been open since the early 1980s is closing its doors.

The Wine & Cheese Shop at Kingsmill, located on Pocahontas Trail near Busch Gardens, is no longer in operation after more than 35 years in James City County.

Amanda Aguilar and her husband Marc have operated the store for three-and-a-half years, but Amanda said she wanted to pursue a new path that would demand less of her time so she could see more of her family.

She hopes to enroll in law school after taking some time for herself.

The store featured a salad bar, an extensive selection of cheese and wine and weekly free wine tastings.

“We wanted to thank everybody for the support and loyalty to the cheese shop,” Marc Aguilar said Thursday. “The customers are what made this experience.”

Amanda Aguilar still plans on offering catering to customers with her business partner Linda Taylor.
