Now in our winter hours!

We are now in our "Winter hours". We are open by appointment for bottle sales only. Please call us to arrange a day and time to stop by and purchase wine. We reopen with regular hours on February 29th, 2020. Cheers! "A most unlikely place to find such good wine!"

This was a comment made by one of our first customers. He was right, you would not expect to find such good wine on a working farm and sold out of an old barn. But what we lack in grand buildings we make up for with excellent wine, great service and a relaxing country atmosphere. If you judge wine by the curb appeal of the building it is sold from, then we are probably not for you. But if quality Virginia wine and down to earth, wine loving people are what appeals to you then we may be what you are looking for.

Great wine and a wonderful wine experience!

 From our one-on-one service, where you can talk to the Owners about wine, to the rustic and relaxing tasting room, you will have a WINE EXPERIENCE! We offer indoor seating in the tasting room, a spacious deck area, and huge open meadows where you can enjoy a picnic lunch. Our quiet atmosphere, pastoral views, and great company are a perfect way to wind down from the stress of the work week. Bring a picnic lunch. We have open meadows to enjoy, or grab a table in the tasting room, vineyard or on the deck. We are convenient to Orange, Fredericksburg, Charlottesville, Richmond, Culpeper, Louisa and Barboursville. You will love the experience at Chateau MerrillAnne in Orange!

Its not just about wine, its about friends!

 Chateau MerrillAnnes owners, Kenny and Emily White, have made some of their best friends thru the winery.  Wine is the ultimate "social" food. It creates good will, offers a subject of endless conversation and brings people together. When you participate in one of our signature Pot Luck Dinners, after hours Vintner Tastings or one of our Game Nights you will make, and be among, friends. Please sign up for our e-mail updates and like our Facebook page for upcoming events. We look forward to seeing you! 

The Experience

Chateau MerrillAnne invites you to experience the farm elegance of our warm and intimate tasting room. A wine tasting here is not just about "Tasting" wine. It's also about exchanging wine information. It's about asking and answering questions. Its about getting to know new friends. For us, the tasting room experience is what we look forward to the most. The fun of being in the tasting room and talking wine with friends is the reason we do what we do. We are truly a wine lovers winery. No theme parties of the week, no live music, no brewery and no distillery. We are all about the wine. And while we produce dry, french style wine, we also offer Sangria and wine slushies on the weekend for our sweet lovers. Bring a picnic basket, buy a bottle and enjoy the quiet surroundings. Convenient to Orange, Fredericksburg, Charlottesville, Richmond, Louisa and Barboursville. We look forward to seeing you!

Our Land
