  Angel Chardonnay
We introduce the newest addition to our wine collection. Angel Chardonnay revels in a tropical halo of fruity aromas with an ethereal citrus influence and a hint of papaya and pineapple. A fruit forward signature qualifies this wine as a top contender! This angelic wine is sure to ring bells with its soft entry and lingering acidity that result in a heavenly smooth finish. Angel Chardonnay is a blend of barrel and tank fermented Chardonnay with a touch of Vidal.

A unique blend of Cabernet, Merlot and Chambourcin produces this exceptionally smooth semi-dry red wine. Its appealing spicy character and medium body enhance many dishes as well as light hors d'oeuvres. It's obviously well bred!

This vintage of Cabernet Franc offers rich, robust flavors of blackberries and black cherries. The finish never disappoints the palate and features lingering, mature tannins.
  Cabernet Sauvignon
Cabernet grapes from a select group of Virginia vineyards are fermented and aged in American and French oak. Rich layers of black cherry, raspberry, cassis and chocolate characterize this dry wine. The silky finish reveals traces of buttery oak and ripened fruit.
  Chambourcin
The deep violet hues are a preview of the layers of complexity and flavors that our Chambourcin has to offer. This lush wine features abundant fruity aromas leading into rich flavors of blackberry and blueberry. Classic characteristics of Virginia terrior are entwined with spice, rich earthiness and a hint of oak.
  Chardonnay
Our Chardonnay is a well-rounded wine with a buttery finish and aromas of apple, pineapple and pear. Essences of vanilla and honey derived from French oak carry through the mid-palate to provide a lingering aftertaste and full mouth feel. The rich complexity of flavors was achieved by separate fermentation of grapes from four Virginia vineyards. The wine was barrel fermented and aged sur lies (on the yeast) for ten months.

Traveling The Blue Ridge Parkway in a perfect mountain setting with the addition of a legitimate winery along the route. Chateau Morrisette Winery not only provides a nice break along the way with their winery, but also provides a top rate restaurant. An amazing spread of wines to choose from and some which are very tasty. I don't know if it is from the soil composition or temperatures encountered at the vineyard's elevation, which is over 3000', along with the vintner's practices, but all wines form CMW have a distinct different taste from other nearby wineries in NC and VA. The best way to describe for purchase considerations is that wines from Chateau Morrisette are "fun". Add to this, they have wines providing funds for the maintenance and enhancement of the incredible Blue Ridge Parkway. Not our favorite, but we always pick up a case of Our Dog Blue (semi-sweet Riesling-Traminette blend) for appreciative friends.
