With fresh vintages, flavors, and events at the winery, restaurant, vineyard, and festival field throughout the year, we will keep you abreast of all the great happenings and the people who make up Chateau Morrisette Winery and Restaurant in this blog and through our Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Pinterest sites.
What an awesome designation from the Charlotte Observer. We have many Wine Club members from the Charlotte area and we're only 2.5 hours away, so we see a lot of visitors from the Queen City too. This makes being named one of the top ten don't miss spots by the Charlotte Observer even better. Here is what they said:
"One of Virginia’s oldest wineries, Chateau Morrisette is a bit of a secret outside the region. But the wine’s good and the bistro and live music series (www.thedogs.com) make a stop even more worthwhile."

Norma Meyer recently visited Chateau Morrisette and wrote a nice segment about her entire visit to the Blue Ridge Parkway region near Roanoke, Virginia. She is a travel writer and contributor to the Creators Syndicate. Here is what she had to say about Chateau Morrisette:
"Those favoring fermented grapes and pooches over hooch should head to Chateau Morrisette winery, where the Black Dog red blend is "well bred" and the owners' late black Lab, Hans, graces wine labels and souvenirs. (We're told he was great at lapping up wine spills.) The winery's lauded restaurant is dogged in epicurean details (pomegranate Merlot salad dressing, Chardonnay tomato jam) and provides an intoxicating mountain view."
