We packed a lunch brought the dog and kids and enjoyed the afternoon. There is a creek for kids to play in, which kept them busy for the afternoon. The wine was ok, but the atmosphere was fabulous!

We had a little wine tasting one day, and we came back twice afterwards to buy a bottle of our favorite one. It was a beautiful and tranquil location to relax and sip wine with friends and loved ones. HIGHLY recommend.

Just think of a wine tasting, with live music in the background, surrounded by a vineyard and Grandfather Mountain directly above you. What could be better? Only one thing, a river with picnic tables and Adirondack chairs to absorb all the beauty of the cool...More

They do have wine club members, and you are required to buy two cases (three bottles) a year. You get free tastings.
