The majority of the wine produced here is estate wine. In other words, they make wine from grapes they grow onsite. If you've ever had east coast wine then you know what to expect. Niagara, Muscadine, and sweet sweet sweet. But happily they have a few classic varietals like Merlot and Cab that are decent. So the wine are mediocre... More

I recently had a tasting here and it was very enjoyable. They have a variety of wines so there should be one that suits anybody. They have several that part of the proceeds go to either lung cancer research or the Conservators Center Wildlife refuge in Mebane.

Enjoyed the tasting at the Winery at Iron Gate Farm. There were many reds and whites to sample and a few fruit wines also. Very pleasant surroundings, nice conversation and casual music.

Iron Gate Winery offers a nice variety of red and white wines - usually 4 or 5 of each. Several have won state, regional and/or national awards. There is a lovely outdoor cafe where you can hear music many evenings and weekend afternoons in good weather. The prices are reasonable, but no bargain; you'll pay the same price ($10-$13 a... More

A few weeks ago, Tom and I were in Mebane N.C. visiting our daughter. One afternoon we went to visit Iron Gate Farm which is only a few miles from her home. Iron Gate is one of four wineries on the Haw River wine road. As an aside to this review, we would also recommend the Benjamin Winery.....very good!!! We... More

If you're a fan of white wine with a taste for the sweeter wines, this winery is for you. Located on NC Hwy 119 North about one mile North of Mebane. They have a large tasting area, great for large groups and parties. The pour on the tastings are a bit stingy. They grow most of their own grapes on... More

To preface my remarks, one of our favorite pastimes is to visit various wineries and fine-dining establishments throughout North Carolina. On many an occasion, we've found that some of the best of each can be found in some of the small towns that pepper the countryside. Of the current (as of this writing) 117 wineries that are operational in this... More

Three friends and I went to the winery Saturday afternoon for a tasting. They were in the middle of offering farm tour hayrides so we had to wait a bit for a tasting. We were given a brief explanation and tour and then led into the very large tasting room for a tasting of 14 wines! Several of them were... More

We enjoyed our afternoon at Iron Gate. We sampled 12 wines which were fairly good for North Carolina. Think they are doing a great job. Wish we would have had more time to spend. They have a nice outside area where we were invited to return and bring lunch to have a picnic. Would definately return.

We ended up here by fluke and it was well worth it! We got there right after they were opening and they welcomed us in with open arms. After a tour of their facility, we were lead down to the tasting area by Patty. She was such a delight!!! Personable, and a wealth of information. The tasting is the complete... More
