Stopped on the way to the beach and had a great experience. Very generous pours to taste. We liked it so much that we joined the club and bought a case. I know the local grape isn't for everyone but we like it.

Great wines and tasting experience. Nick was very knowledgeable and knew his product. While there picked up dinner advice from a fellow taster. Walked out with 6 bottles of wine.

This winery is a hidden gem. The free wine tasting was enjoyable as our hostess was very knowledgeable and friendly. They make 18 different wines and they were all wonderful. Bottles are very reasonable at $15-$25 apiece. Some of the wines were sold out when...More

Great winery located on Route 158 close to the Outer Banks. Great wines, dry wines are smooth. Fruit wines are not too sweet. Free tastings! Bottles are around $15 and up, worth it. Visit the Cotton Gin Shop up the road before or after. Well...More

Sure! You'll still be able to do a tasting between 5:30 and 6:00, and we'll be getting ready for the following evenings event, Prom for Grown Ups, so we'll likely be open a little later.
