Château Morrisette-in Rocky Knob Appellation

We recently visited Château Morrisette located in the little heard of Rocky Knob Appellation. According to Appellation America, only two other wineries are located in that appellation, Villa Appalaccia and Petit Chateau Winery.

On our visit to Château Morrisette, one staff member referred to Château Morrisette as a “castle in the mountains.” The location of the winery and its architecture inspire one to conjure up fairytales or to think of Hans Christen Andersen tales.

Located just off the Blue Ridge Parkway near milepost 172, Château Morrisette is a destination stop. The winery offers visitors good wines, an array of gifts to choose from and an onsite restaurant.

With salvaged timbers from the St. Lawrence Seaway and a warehouse in Washington, the winery is environmentally friendly and has used old to create new.

What wineries have you visited that use salvaged timbers in their construction?
