There is much to take in at the palatial Chateau Morrisette, such as free live music Sunday afternoons (June – October) on the winery courtyard, seasonal events including The Black Dog Music Festivals and Holiday Open Houses, plus winery tours, tastings, and big gift shop.
The on-site restaurant features Appalachian-French fusion farm-to-table cuisine (reservations recommended; see separate listing for details
), and the vistas from the restaurant’s perch on the crest of the Blue Ridge have earned them a ranking among OpenTable's top 100 restaurant views in America.
The wine mix is just as varied as the entertainment, with reds, whites, blush and fruit wines. Cider entered the picture, also, in 2016, with three varieties available (if you're lucky - it sells out quickly, so call ahead if you have your heart set on it). You can choose from dry barrel-aged, chai cider, and cherry ginger.
You may want to plan to stay a while. And be sure to bring your dog -- they are welcome here. Chateau Morrisette allows dogs in the Tasting Room and on the terrace of the Restaurant. Well-behaved dogs on leash are also welcome at summer festivals.
Groups of twelve or more, please call the winery in advance.
The winery and estate makes Chateau Morrisette a popular place for weddings and private events; group tours and private tours are available (call: 540-593-9223); dine in the restaurant or picnic on the grounds (or buy something from the outdoor grill on Sundays from June - October); kids welcome.
The vast wine list consists of anything your palate may desire from bold reds to sweet to semi-sweet and off-dry wines.
Both the winery and restaurant are wheelchair accessible; guests can park at a concrete pad and then go up a ramp or directly into a doorway.
