Chateau Morrisette Winery and Restaurant is known for its quality Virginia wines, its scenic location along the Blue Ridge Parkway, its Black Dog Music Festivals and other special events, as well as its top-notch fine dining restaurant. The winery is open 7-days a week and offers wine tastings for $8 per person (for $2 more you may keep the souvenir glass). The tasting includes a tour of our winery. Hours vary by day of the week. The Chateau Restaurant is open Wed-Thu 11-2, Fri - Sat 11-9, and Sun 11-4. Open for lunch everyday in October. Guests may purchase wine by the bottle or glass and spend time relaxing in our courtyard, in a private gazebo, or from our terrace overlooking the scenic New River Valley. Live entertainment is offered every Sunday afternoons, June through October and we invite guests to check our website for the many special events we produce throughout the year, including the Black Dog Music Festivals.

Big jazz festival in June Or July with thousands attending. The best is yet to come because the wine was backed originally by the owners father and his catfish farm in Alabama. What a succuss story.

Thanks for the nice review. Our 2017 Calendar of events will be published in mid January. While we have a very nice restaurant on the estate, we also allow guests to bring their own picnics and enjoy the view. (No outside alcohol, please). We have three gazebos that guests may use on a first come first served basis. These gazebos... More

I know very little about wine -- I like sweet wine, something I'm told characterizes Trump voters -- but I know a great deal about customer service and the management at Chateau Morrisette is among the most customer-oriented I've ever encountered. We had a problem with our order that we didn't discover until we were back home. It was solved... More

Thank you for your nice review and rating. I'm glad you finally made it up the mountain to see us. We are located along the Blue Ridge Parkway and the Park Service does not allow signage. We do recommend that everyone check the website for directions before leaving home. This is especially true during the winter months when the Parkway... More

Right off the Parkway, a few miles north of Mabry Mill. A large gift/wine shop, tours of the winery, tasting room, and a restaurant. The gift/wine shop is pet-friendly, too. Arriving late in the afternoon, we were not able to go on the winery tour or the tasting room. Also, we need to find out if you can dine on... More

Thanks for the nice review and rating. We welcome dogs here at the winery and they are allowed to dine with you on the terrace during the warmer months. State laws prohibit dogs inside the restaurant or in the cellar itself. The Tasting Room Gift Shop is fine. All dogs must be well behaved and leashed throughout their visit. Please... More

My husband and I had reservations for lunch the day after Thanksgiving. The restaurant and winery are located in a lovely setting just off the parkway.

Thank you for your review. I will share your comments with our Chef and with our Tasting Room Manager. The Tasting sheets change weekly.

In a beautiful setting, staffed by very friendly staff, serving delicious wine. This is a must stop for anyone who has an interest in wine. A glance at their label will quickly let you know that this is a very dog friendly. I very much enjoyed my stay there and I am anxious to go back.

Thank you for visiting and reviewing. For folks who may not know about our dog label, the original winery black lab, Hans, was a constant companion to our owner David Morrisette in the early days of the winery, and even lapped up the occasional spill. When Hans passed in 1995, he was memorialized in a watercolor that now graces most... More

We visited Chateau Morrisette Winery Restaurant for brunch. The food was amazing. The service may seem slow, but unlike some restaurants, they do not rush you to get you seated, served and out the door.
