Chrysalis Vineyards


Editorial Review

Chrysalis is a booster of the Norton, an American grape that the winery uses to create surprisingly light red wines such as Sarah's Patio Red. You won't find Norton at many other wineries in the area, so it's worth a try. But the real star here has turned out to be one of the vineyard's whites, the Albarino; don't leave without having a glass of this award-winner. Families: The winery keeps a designated family area and has grills and picnic tables, should you want to bring your own picnic spread to go with your wine. -- Lavanya Ramanathan (June 2010)
