Established in October of 2008, Casanel Vineyards and Winery is a family-owned and operated business. Our main focus centers on our passion not only for grape-growing, but also for winemaking, emphasized in the way we produce our small lot, craft wines. Our unique terroir, located in the heart of the Middleburg AVA in Leesburg, Virginia, provides us with the perfect setting to achieve our exclusive winemaking style and flavors. The family, along with our stellar vineyard and cellar team, work together each and every year to capture the best expression of our terroir and enthusiasm for winemaking excellence. Each grape is nurtured on the vine, artfully crafted in our cellar, and then finally hand-bottled and hand-labeled before our wine makes its way to your glass. We pride ourselves on providing a truly unique experience in our tasting room, one that is reflected in our quiet, adult ambiance, tranquil setting amidst the Catoctin ridge, and educational approach to tastings. Passion, quality, and attention to detail make our wines a perfect pour, every time. Casanel is closed for the Holidays with their final day of 2015, Monday December 21st. Casanel will reopen in 2016 on Thursday January 14th.

This was the second winery of the day staff was very knowledgeable and it was fun to see all the wines that were named after family members. The dessert wine is delicious. They have a great outdoor seating area, with a local musician; bring your own picnic lunch, buy a bottle of wine and enjoy.

We enjoyed a nice friendly wine tasting, and then enjoyed a nice glass of wine out on the back deck. It is a fun experience to learn about and taste various wines. Many of them seem to have interesting names and stories behind them. I little different than the average experience. Take the time and stop in. The back deck... More

The lake and gazebo are definitely the stars of this property. The large beautiful tasting room with back porch are also lovely, as is the covered patio outside. Last Saturday there was live music which really added to the atmosphere. You can easily spend 2-3 hours at this property if you do the tasting, hang out, then picnic and stroll... More

Casanel is close to leesburg so we took off with 2 other couples to see what we could find. We were nicely treated and liked the tastings we had. My friends bought a few bottles and we had a picnic. It was cold but we didn't mind. A fun afternoon!

A fantastic winery, with good wines and warm and knowledgeable staff. After the tasting, we sat on their lovely patio overlooking the pond and just relaxed and savor the moment. Highly recommended if wine touring in the area.

The location is nice and spacious. The staff is very nice and friendly, there is plenty of space to sit and read and enjoy a glass or bottle without feeling like you have others around you. The wine is good, we didn't love any of them in particular but we also didn't hate any...that is why I say they are... More

This was the second winery visit on a warm Saturday before the first three day weekend of the summer. The trip to get there was via a very bumpy road. I get it, there are lots of farms and vineyards near by but make sure you've got a decent car add the road is bumpy. The wines are a hit... More

It's open feel and large tasting bar area is nic and you don't feel like you are bumping elbows with everyone around. The staff is so friendly and welcoming, by time you left, you felt as... More

I was very impressed that this winery had two menus to chose from for their tasting: a standard menu and a sweeter wine selection. I went with the sweet wines and Erik was a joy during the tasting. I ended up buying two bottles of wine and would happily go back another time with friends for another tasting.
