About Us

A group picture of friends and family of Chateau MerrillAnne posing in front of the tasting room.

We are family!

No, we are not all related. But we are all part of the Chateau MerrillAnne family. Friends, relatives, volunteers who all have made a huge, positive impact on Chateau MerrillAnne Winery and Vineyards. Whether it is planting, harvesting, building or events we can always count on the CMA family to get it done.

Our first vineyard was planted in 2010

With the help of family and friends our first vineyard was planted in April of 2010. Over the years we have expanded the vineyard, added a new one and also lease vineyard space in various areas of Virginia to give us some geographic diversity. Our first harvest was in 2012.
