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...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...More

The owner is delightful and welcoming. The wines are made from 100% local grapes and you can taste the TLC.

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.

First trip here back in 2012 was so memorable, but when we went back again in 2014 a completely different story. The wines are great, but I believe Chateau O'Brien got to BIG for their own vineyard.

We were actually on our way somewhere else, saw the sign and had to stop. The winery was beautiful, great view, good wine (not all to my taste), friendly staff. Dee was our pourer and she was fun. Wish we could have stayed longer.

I have been to many wineries in NoVA and Chateau O'Brien is by far the best. Their reds are some of the best we've ever had...even better than some from California. The owner and winemaker definitely care about what they are doing and are after...More
