Home to Prince Michel and Rapidan River Wines, Prince Michel Vineyard & Winery is one of the east coast’s premier wine destinations. As a pioneer in the Virginia wine industry, Prince Michel is one of the oldest and largest wineries in the Commonwealth. The winery passionately offers its customers with great wine and a luxurious experience. Prince Michel Vineyard & Winery provides service on their website, at their main winery, and various off-site tasting rooms.
Prince Michel is now home to Tap 29 Brewery & Brew Pub enhancing the experience with local craft brews and homemade pub grub 7 days a week. It doesn’t matter if you visit through the website or come to the winery and pub–it is always our goal to make your experience with them exceptional.
Prince Michel’s basic approach is that “wines should be enjoyed and the best wine is what you like.” Much of this fresh approach to wine comes from the present owner of Prince Michel, Kristin Easter. Only one of a hand-full of female winery owners, Kristin’s business model is centered around hospitality and the pleasure of a great wine experience. Her creative business style has challenged the traditional philosophy of how to experience wine.
The diversity of wines produced by Prince Michel and Rapidan River allows a level of choice most wineries cannot achieve on such a large scale. Wines range from high-end “craft” wines to a sweet-wine line from the Rapidan River series like the Semi-dry Riesling, Peach, and Chocolate. Last but not least, they are known for their famous wine slushies! Served year-round , changing out flavors on a monthly basis, from Peach to Margarita, Lemon Drop, Cosmo, and their newest seasonal addition of Apple Harvest. Served as flights and glasses, they are another reason to make Prince Michel as must-visit on your journey to Virginia Wine Country.”
