Unlike any other winery you will ever experience! Glass House Winery is one fun place to taste fine wine. In addition to enjoying its charming tasting room overlooking a picturesque pond, one can relax at small tables in a very large and tropical arboretum with banana trees to the ceiling and an understory thick with non-native tropical plants.
Jeff and Michelle Sanders have created a most unique tasting room that makes you feel like you just arrived for a vacation in the tropics. Their artisan wines are produced only from grapes grown on the estate. Jeff has the botanical skills and Michelle has the complimentary skills of being a chocolatier and together these create a most delicious tasting experience. They offer estate wines, blends, a unique chocolate wine and Michelle’s extraordinary hand-dipped chocolates.
The winery often hosts local small bands and other musical groups. They are open Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays noon until 5 or 6 pm.
From the Author: We have had several happy visits to Glass House Winery, and we have sent a number of out of town friends there to taste fine Virginia wine. It is great fun to visit such a completely unique winery with its tropical conservatory which includes tall banana trees and an understory thick with lush tropical plants. What a pleasure to relax at tables in the conservatory sipping excellent wine in between melt-in-your mouth bites of Michelle's original hand-dipped chocolates. If you wish to sit outside you may enjoy the terrace overlooking their beautiful pond.
