We’ll also help you score reservations at restaurants, book tours, excursions, and events, and more.

The family-owned and operated vineyard creates and serves wines reflective of the terroir of the winery’s location: the Yadkin Valley. They grow their own grapes, ranging from Cabernets and Chardonnays to Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc in their 200-acre vineyard. Then they transport those grapes to their on-site 33,0000-square-foot winery building where they process them into the delicious wines you’ll taste. Not only will you find great wine, but great food to pair it with as well! The vineyard’s Harvest Grill offers a wide variety of seasonal food to pair with your new favorite wine. Make sure to also visit Stony Knoll Vineyards, Herrera Vineyards, and Hutton Vineyards and Winery are just a few of the other vineyards that call the Yadkin Valley home. Take a bottle of your new favorite from each to pair with Memorial Day meals.
