Prince Michel Vineyard & Winery

Region: Central Virginia

Prince Michel Winery was established in 1982 by French Entrepreneurs and Philanthropists Jean and Sylviane LeDucq. Their love of wine and good business sense were the perfect ingredients for starting a winery during the infancy period of Virginia’s now thriving industry. Steeped in tradition, Prince Michel soon gained the status as an “Old World” winery on the East coast. In 2005 Prince Michel was purchased by Kristin Swanson Easter, who is one of a handful of female winery owners in the world and her exuberance and vitality carry over into a new and exciting era of winemaking.

Located 30 Miles North of Charlottesville - The winery and tap room are open 7 days a week, offering internationally acclaimed wines in the tasting room as well as craft brew, cider and pub style dining at Tap 29 Brewery. Come experience the exuberance and vitality of Prince Michel from our eclectic gift shop to an afternoon of wine slushies and live music…there is truly something here for everyone.
