Chef Slade Mankins creates fresh New American cuisine designed to pair with the wide assortment of wines produced in our cellar. With two estate gardens, Chateau Morrisette provides seasonal offerings to ensure quality and freshness. Guest may dine by the fire in colder months or outside on our terrace in the warmer months.
