One of our most boutique wineries for Virginia Wine Tours is Glass House Winery.  They are located in the heart of the Monticello Wine Trail in central Virginia, near Charlottesville.  They craft artisan wines made only from grapes grown on their property and in our region.  They currently have 6 acres under vine and have chosen grapes that bring out the best of the land in our region. Awed by the lush landscape, the beauty of the Blue Ridge and the friendliness of the people, owners, Jeff and Michelle Sanders, moved to Virginia in 2006. While searching for a way to blend Jeff’s botanical skills with Michelle’s love of creating unique chocolates, the couple stumbled upon Charlottesville Virginia’s growing 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 one-of-a-kind winery. They offer estate wines, blends, and Glass House Winery’s own brand of handmade chocolates.

Glass House Winery is a great stop on your next of several Virginia Wine Tours!
