About Glass House Winery
Glass House Winery is a boutique winery in the heart of the Monticello Wine Trail in central Virginia. We craft artisan wines made solely from grapes grown on our property and in our region. We now have 12 acres under vine on site (the most recent 6 acres planted in April 2012) and have chosen grapes that bring out the best of the terroir in our region. We cultivate these grapes with meticulous care, while striving to treat the Earth as respectfully and gently as possible in the process.
Owners Jeff and Michelle Sanders moved to Virginia in 2006. They were awed by the lush landscape, the
beauty of the Blue Ridge and the friendliness of the people. While searching for a way to marry Jeff’s botanical skills with Michelle’s love of creating unique chocolates, the couple discovered Virginia’s promising wine industry. It was a perfect match and Glass House Winery was born.
With a tropical flair, artisan wines and chocolates and a very distinctive setting, Glass House is a truly one-of-a-kind winery. We offer estate wines, blends, a very unique chocolate wine and Glass House Winery’s own brand of handmade chocolates. Click here to read a few articles about us. We are open on Thursdays through Sundays (and holiday Mondays) noon-5:30 p.m, and until 9pm on Fridays. Tastings are $8 ($10 if you want to take home the logo etched wine glass) and include a sample of our hand-crafted chocolate. Group tastings for more than 10 people must e-mail our tasting room manager here for scheduling in advance. Bring a picnic and enjoy our patio seating while you enjoy our wines by the glass or by the bottle. Friendly dogs on leash are welcome.
