We were here last week end for the 10th anniversary of Howard's winery. We couldn't miss that since we been going from the beginning. He offered a generous discount if you purchase six or more bottles, so we did. There was also music( two guys ) playing instruments only, but I prefer when there is vocal too. Also had a... More

We stopped by and were greeted by the owner. We got to see the original property that he bought and enjoyed learning about the changes that he's made. We did both tastings and enjoyed the staffs knowledge and friendliness. They have some unusual wines you ain't see anywhere else and the property and views and great.

We so enjoyed our tasting here. All of the wines were wonderful. The view is beautiful. The owner is knowledgeable and friendly. We felt right at home. A great place to go to really taste superior wine and learn from a passionate owner who takes pride in his craft.

There is an ambiance and a charm from this winery from the moment you navigate the entrance. Who doesn't love a French themed chateau with a stunning view (Rt. 66 hardly disturbs)? The owner welcomed us, and his staff really did a nice job in a crowded tasting room. There are actually two tasting rooms; we chose the less expensive... More

We were here last Friday. Howard was already very busy doing tastings with several people. Always welcome us in a big friendly way. We did a tasting and we lived all the wines. He has a great wine maker! The weather was beautiful, we enjoyed some white wine outdoor on the patio getting some sun and had our picnic inside.... More

We did both tastings at this vineyard. They (oddly) separate their red and white wines in 2 different tasting rooms. The white tasting is $8. The red is $15. Even though we were put off by paying for 2 tastings, that said they were the best wines we have had in Virginia. Every wine was well crafted and delicious. They... More

The owner, Howard is always very personable. He has a great selection of wines to taste. He has a great view. This is our third time here over the years. We really enjoy his apple wine. Will be back to do a wine dinner.

We stopped at Chateau O'Brien on a whim while on a drive to pick apples. This is a very nice winery and the staff was very welcoming and knowledgeable. The wines and the view are beautiful! We thoroughly enjoyed the tasting and ordered a bottle to have with the croissants from the food menu. Everything was delicious, and although it... More
