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 just 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.

Surrounded by the beauty of the Blue Ridge, and with abundant seating and parking, we are an ideal venue for private events. Contact us for further information.

In addition to the Tasting Room and Conservatory, our Glass House Winery B&B is on site overlooking the winery. Great for a getaway or your out of town guests!

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. 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. For group tastings for 15 or more people must please make advance reservations with our tasting room manager at
