Turning off the Parkway, you think another winding road until yo see the restaurant and winery. Set on a hill looking across the valley, you know you made the right choice to stop here. The restaurant offers a wide variety of delicious items (shrimp and grits) either indoors or on the patio. Delicious! While waiting to be seated, look at... More

This was a beautiful setting for a winery, and the tour was really neat. Following that, was an informative tasting, so time well-spent. The wines were wonderful, and very hard to not to pack the trunk full of their wines!

We wanted to see one of the wineries in the area and this one is not to be missed. Once you've tasted the excellent wines, head over to the restaurant for some delicious food! You will not be disappointed!

The views are stunning and the location is so near to both Floyd and the Blue Ridge Parkway. Their gift shop has some very interesting and unique items. The restaurant has a variety of delicious entrees. Great side trip.

I have never been to a winery before so I don't have anything to compare this experience to but I did enjoy it. You must go to the cash register to purchase a ticket for the wine tasting. We had to figure this out on our own, would have been nice to have had this explained to us somehow. It... More

Enjoyed the winery, but wines are mediocre. Service wad okay, but not outstanding. Would return again, but wouldn't go out of our way to do so.

Andrew, We're very sorry you did not have an excellent experience while you were here. It's good to know you would return again. I would guess that you prefer the dryer wines and if that is the case, I hope you will give us another try after harvest. We have a new winemaker who has been making wines in France... More

The wines are good value for money and well made. We visited in terrible rain and didn't see anything of the outside, just a short walk round the wine storage room. Friendly staff but not as knowlegable as at some wineries.

Chateau Morrisette is one of my favorite Wineries. We live in PA so do not get a chance to visit very often. It's worth the trip, though. Great WIne, beautiful winery, friendly staff. Plan a trip, it's worth it!

The place is like the Disney World of wineries, huge and not very charming... Good thing the winery tour was free because the kid who gave us the tour knew nothing about how wine was made. The tasting is overpriced at $8 considering that 1/2 are dessert wines and they don't even bother to give you a single cracker. I... More

Thanks for taking the time to review Chateau Morrisette and provide us with such valuable feedback. Villa Appalachia is indeed a wonderful winery and we are very fortunate to have them so nearby. We hope that many of our guests will try us both. I'm sorry that you did not feel the tour was up to standard. Please understand that... More

If you are in SW Virginia and looking for a great place to eat and enjoy some good wine, you must check out Chateau Morrisette! Right off the Blue Ridge Parkway and within 15 minutes to Downtown Floyd make this scenic winery the place to be for wine enthusiasts.
