My husband and I visited this winery while taking a mini-vaca in Highlands, NC. This place was a short drive, and I saw it on my wine map app. The owners were super-friendly, and I personally enjoyed the red blend that Lisa offered me. I now wish I had purchased a bottle. They also have a great selection of wine-appropriate... More

We visited the vineyard while in the area for a family reunion. The stay was so helpful, informative, and charming. We did our wine tasting and then sat outside to share a bottle of wine while some of our group toured the property and picked fresh muscadine grapes. Love the wine, love the staff, loved the experince.

For a place the sip wine and drink in the views this place cannot be beat. The staff was friendly, the wine was good, and the property is the star. Worth a visit even if you're only a casual wine drinker. They have something for all palates.
