If you are a snob looking for a fancy winery, this place is not for you. If you are looking to have a great time at a unique place, do not pass this place up. After traveling to all the "normal" wineries, I enjoyed this place the most. It is located in a small metal shed in the middle of... More

I'm not sure how to leave an honest review without sounding like a snob, but this winery was not one that I will probably ever want to come back to. The poor rating is only for the appearance of the winery. I was actually almost afraid to get out of the car when I arrived. There is really no parking... More

As other reviewers have mentione this is an unassuming winery. The wines are very good nevertheless. The server, LaLa was very entertaining and the owner/winemaker Wally very friendly and knowledgeable. We tasted all their wines and thought they were much better than that of other bigger wineries we have visited in NC.

At first glance, this did not appear to be a winery. We almost did not get out of the vehicle. The grounds were unkept and the metal building rustic. The "poor" rating is for appearance, the wines were less than average, the staff was warm and inviting. Given the number of wineries in NC, I doubt that we will return.

SilkHope Winery does exceptional with Chambourcin and Cab Franc blends. This is not to say their other wines are not good, just that they have become our standard for good hearty red Chambourcin and Cab Franc. For our last Cab Franc tasting, we had to make a trip to SilkHope to include their Cab Franc in our tasting of other... More

The vineyard is beautiful and we did a full tasting of 14 wines. There was a great variety of wines and you, of course, keep your tasting glass. The table inside is set up so that everyone sits together which encourages people to talk and socialize with each other. Lala was our server and she was hilarious! Its a great... More

We stopped in briefly and were awed by the incredible views from the vineyard. We haven't had a wine tasting yet, but look forward to going back this fall.

I bought a deal on LivingSocial for a full tasting and 2 bottles of wine as a Mother's day gift. My mother and I enjoy exploring new places and trying out local venues and had such a great day visiting SilkHope Winery. Upon arrival we noticed that there were not many visitors and wondered where we should enter for the... More

I bought a deal on LivingSocial for a full tasting and 2 bottles of wine since I like trying new wineries. When you pull up - it looks very unassuming (the tasting room is in a Quansset Hut - and I am not even sure I am spelling that right) and were it not for the signs, you might wonder... More
