One of Virginia’s oldest and largest wineries, Chateau Morrisette is a working farm, growing not only grapes, but also a variety of herbs and produce used in its refined rustic New American restaurant. Wine, estate-produced foods, and gift items are available for purchase.
Chateau Morrisette has 15 acres of grapes in production on the estate. Since 1978, wine production has grown from less than 5000 cases a year to over 50,000. Wines are available at grocery stores and wine shops in five southeastern states and available online for shipping to 30 states.
A one-acre vegetable garden used to grow produce served in the restaurant includes a variety of seasonal vegetables. The menu changes quarterly to reflect what is grown. The kitchen garden located just outside the restaurant features raised beds for herbs, vegetables, and flowers for the restaurant. The farm employs a full time vineyard manager. The winery tasting room and restaurant are open to the public year round with seasonal hours.
Chateau Morrisette, like many other businesses, is beginning to open to the public; please check the Re-opening Page for current information.
