Otherwise don't bother! The views are spectacular but the wine leaves a lot to be desired. These folks are not serious about their winemaking but definitely know how to bring home the bacon. So if you like "commercial" written all over the place make this your first stop.

I'm very sorry you were unhappy with our wines during your visit. In addition to our widely distributed sweet and off-dry wines, we have a number of small batch wines that can only be found here at the winery or in specialty wine stores. Many of these wines have won awards and received ratings above 90. If you were looking... More

Decided to stop by the winery while traveling the Blue Ridge Parkway. We enjoy wine and visiting different wineries. This winery was similar to others we have visited in NC and FL. They have an assortment of dry, semi-sweet, and sweet. We prefer sweet wines, and the white and red muscadine wines are very good. They also have fruit wines... More

Thanks for the feedback about your experience and I have shared your review with our Tasting Room Manager. Anyone working the register is at least 18 years old per state law. The associate could very well have been new to Chateau Morrisette so we will work to provide better training for new associates. There is no excuse for rudeness and... More

Chateau Morrisette was nice to visit for the weekend. Really beautiful facility, good wines, great restaurant. The weather was super cold when we were there, but if the weather was nicer the view outside is great.

It can get a bit blustery up here on the mountain top in the late fall and winter. When it's cold outside, we always make sure to have the fireplaces burning to help take the chill off when you visit. The restaurant has three fireplaces and the tasting room has one. Sipping wine and eating delicious foods fireside is always... More

Keith T, Public Relations Manager at Chateau Morrisette Winery, responded to this review

We make a number of small batch Virginia wines that are very popular. However, because they are so popular, they tend to sell out quickly. In order for a wine to be called a Virginia wine, it must contain at least 75% fruit grown in Virginia. Sometimes, depending on the year and the climate, that fruit can be hard to... More

Amazing winery situated a skip and a jump off the Blue Ridge Parkway in south West Virginia! What is amazing is the number of labels and variations the winery produces - 34 labels! Even more amazing is that the altitude around 3,000 ft is too high for vines so almost all the raw product is bought from producers in VA... More

Thanks for the review and for the accuracy of your assertions. We are going to scale back from the 34 varieties to something a little more manageable. Did you know that we also have a line of gourmet foods called Morrisette Farms? I'm so glad you enjoyed your experience. Come back and see us again soon. More
