NOT JUST ANOTHER PRETTY WINERY
NOT YOUR ORDINARY WINERY
MORE THAN A WINERY
Located in southwest Virginia at Floyd among breathtaking vistas of the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains along the Parkway, Chteau Morrisette is one of the largest and oldest wineries in Virginia. Noted for producing varietal and proprietary blended award-winning wines, the winery also features a salvaged timber-frame production facility, large gift shop, tasting room, restaurant, gardens and event grounds.
More than just a winery producing award-winning wines in a beautiful rural setting, Chateau Morrisette has maintained a strong commitment to hospitality excellence since 1978. The winery is open year round for winery tours, wine tastings, shopping, events and memorable dining. A gourmet restaurant offers elegant dining with distinctive specialty themed dining events, open house parties, musical concerts and plays. Additional activities are offered throughout the year including the Black Dog Summer Concert Series and free Sunday Sounds music. A natural amphitheater accommodates outdoor events.
Located on the scenic Blue Ridge Parkway at Milepost 171.5, thousands of annual visitors consider the winery a premier destination for a relaxing and exciting experience encompassing fine wine, good food and natural surroundings. It has also become a popular venue for weddings, receptions and other special gatherings.
An expansion and modernization in 1999 included a new wine production facility and spacious hospitality center constructed from salvaged timber from the St. Marie River and from a Seattle warehouse to create one of the largest salvaged timber frame buildings in North America: 32,365 square feet with over 132,000 board feet of recycled Douglas fir timbers.
From light-bodied Rieslings and buttery Chardonnays, to the bright fruit of Chambourcin and rich, full-bodied Cabernets, the winemaking team makes over 25 different wines. Oh, did I forget the resident Black Labradors? That have inspired their wine labels and greet one and all? Not your usual winery!
