Owner description: 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.

I decided to go to this place on a whim while getting sick of the crowds at leesburg outlets and needing some outdoor time. I was pleasantly surprised. The place is a bit remote, with some travel on non-paved roads required. The winery has a really nice layout, with plenty of open space, tables/chairs on a patio, lake with a gazebo, and they opened the gates to the vines so you could walk through the actual vineyard area. nice touch that they trusted their customers enough to walk through. The owner and his family were all nice and had great stories to tell about the land and how the winery came about. The wine itself is on par with Virginia wines overall - not spectacular but certainly decent. The place was very relaxed yet sophisticated. Highly recommend overall.

“Excellent staff, superb presentation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2011

I can't say enough about this place. We were greeted with smiles by 2 young, polite, smiling sisters - the daughters of the owners.

They presented the wines, telling their families story. Their Dad is from Brazil, so we learned a little about Brazilian culture, learned a lot about their family, the property, how it was restored, and about the wine. The tasting room is small, but beautiful! It was such a nice refreshing experience after visiting a nearby vineyard, with miserable service.

This vineyard is built out of love, with a close knit family, who welcomes you into their amazing story.
