Glass House Winery

Conveniently located in Free Union, Virginia just outside of Charlottesville, Glass House Winery is a boutique artisanal winery with a distinctly tropical flair. Its location at the base of the Blue Ridge offers stunning 360-degree protected mountain views.

Visitors will have their breath taken as they look out over the lush vineyard to the rolling hills of the Piedmont beyond the vines. The high quality, small batch wines crafted at Glass House are made exclusively from grapes grown on the property and in the region that show off the best of central Virginia’s terroir.

A truly one-of-a-kind winery, Glass House continually surprises visitors.

Glass House’s unique attached glass conservatory is the ideal spot to relax with a glass of wine among the tropical foliage not found elsewhere in central Virginia. Glass House also offers handcrafted chocolates made on site by the winery’s chocolatier. A sample of the chocolate comes with a wine tasting. Visitors are sure to love the very unique chocolate wine the winery has developed.

Glass House has twelve acres of vine on site, and its grapes are cultivated with meticulous care. The grapes are grown to be as intense as possible in order to produce the most rich, flavorful wine. One of the most interesting stops on the Monticello Wine Trail, visitors will be delighted by the distinctive features of Glass House that make it stand out from other central Virginia wineries.

Those looking for an escape from the monotony of daily life need look no further than Glass House. With its stunning tropical flowers, the short drive from the city transports visitors to a worry-free, breathtaking island. Kick back and enjoy a cool mountain breeze as you sip a glass of wine like you won’t find elsewhere and eat a piece of handmade, artisanal chocolate at Glass House Winery.
