Policies and Expectations
Children Visiting Chrysalis Vineyards... a note from Jennifer McCloud, Proprietor
“When I began the design of Chrysalis Vineyards, I envisioned a beautiful oasis in the Virginia countryside where adults could put away the stresses and noises of the city and hectic family life. I wanted to create an island of respite and relaxation where adult friends and family could share time together over a delightful glass of wine and complementary food.
“It is important to me to preserve this vision and create the most memorable experience possible for our guests. Toward this end, we ask those guests that arrive with children to respect this vision and supervise their children accordingly, so they remain well behaved and with you at all times while at The Ag District.”
Please note that the 2nd floor and deck areas are for our wine consuming guests ONLY. No one under 21 years of age is allowed in these spaces.
Picnic Areas for Guests Visiting Chrysalis Vineyards
Please remember that Chrysalis Vineyards is not a public park. The seating, picnic tables and other property amenities are for the use of our wine-buying customers only and are on a first come, first serve basis.
Bringing Alcohol to Chrysalis Vineyards
It is absolutely forbidden at any time for any alcoholic beverage (liquor, beer, or wine) to be brought onto the Chrysalis Vineyards’ farm winery property. This is not just a policy; this IS an ABC regulation - in other words, a Virginia law.
Pets at Chrysalis Vineyards
All pets visiting Chrysalis Vineyards must be kept on a leash at all times, and may not enter the building (except trained service animals).
Hours of Operation
We are open to the general public for wine tastings every day,
Our wine tastings are $15 and include tasting of 10 Chrysalis Vineyards wines. Our wines are poured in a 10½ oz. INAO-styled glass (the internationally recognized Institut National d'Appellation d'Origine wine tasting glass is the “finest inexpensive tasting glass in the world.” - Robert Parker), which is yours to take home.
