Welcome to Chateau O'Brien!

Chateau O'Brien at Northpoint is proud to be a family owned and operated winery, with owner Howard O'Brien personally pouring wine and sharing his intimate knowledge of the wines at the tasting bars. The winery is nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Northern Virginia, and has earned a reputation for producing hand-crafted wines of distinction in a variety of styles ranging from premium dry white varietals, to complex red blends with depth and integrity, and even a wildly popular Apple Dessert wine.

Our acclaim lies with ultra-premium individual red varietals, and blends, that are perfectly matched to our mountainside terroir and nurtured with vigilant viticultural practices, including Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Petit Verdot, and our world-renowned Tannat limited Reserve and Late Harvest Tannat.

With three intimate tasting rooms and picturesque views from our open-air patio and expansive covered deck, your experience will always be a treat and each visit uniquely memorable.
