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 it’s fine dining 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 throughout seven southeastern states and may be ordered and shipped to consumers in over 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. There is a small kitchen garden located just outside the restaurant featuring raised beds for herbs, vegetables, and even flowers for cutting. The farm employs a full time gardener and a vineyard manager. It’s open to the public year round.
