Tasted 20 very different fruit wine varieties for $5. Truly a unique experience. Had a wine shot with cheese whiz that needed to be licked off my hand and it tasted like pepperjack. Also tried kiss the devil...extremely spicy. I would recommend this winery for creative chefs not wine coinersours. We bought a bottle of pumpkin wine that we are... More

It's a winery with wines made from fruits grown on the property. Some very nice wines, most unusual. It's very rustic and has great wine tasting particularly on the weekends. They have barns with animals you are free to visit and a farmhouse you can rent. (A great summer getaway). I would recomend a quick stop if you love wine... More

Enjoyed the wine tasting! Easy to find and lots of new wines to sample. The hostess was entertaining and made us feel welcome.

If you're an expert on wines this is definitely not the place for you. This winery has the most outrages wines I've ever had the pleasure of tasting. They had the Chocolate Cherry Wine, Blueberry Muffin Wine, Blue Ridge Mountain Dew Wine, and the Light Pear Wine. They had a wine that tasted like a Margarita, another that tasted like... More

We were looking for a winery and this was one of the few that were open during the week. It was a wonderful environment. The staff was extremely friendly and knowledgable about their wines. This is a place for families including those with children. Their friendly atmosphere was most appealing and we recommend this for all types of wine drinkers.... More

Please don't be fooled by the name. We were traveling on the Blue Ridge parkway and saw the "Peaks of Otter" wine in the gift store. We decided to explore the winery which proved to be a total waste of time. This place is not a winery but rather an apple orchard with a few lines of grapes to show... More

This cozy orchard is located in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains near Roanoke, Virginia and about 8 miles from scenic Blue Ridge Parkway. You can pick your own apples and picnic in their pavilion, and they also have an affiliated vacation rental home and winery. Recommended!

We stopped by the Peaks of Otter Winery as part of a day trip while visiting Smith Mountain lake. I'm glad we did. The wine tasting was fun, and we left with a few bottles of delicious fruit wine.

Peaks of Otter Winery is somewhat hidden -- if you don't know you're looking for it, I can't imagine you'd just randomly stumble across it. Our toddler was napping, so we wanted to find some way to pass the time while she slept -- and we ended up at the Winery. However, we were very pleased with our experience there!... More

This was worth the drive to visit this "sweet" wine-tasting site. They have wine-tasting in which you purchase a small glass ($3-4). Very knowledgeable staff working there. What i didnt know until i was leaving is that you can purchase the fruit from the orchards. You pick and pay by the pound. Great concept, great atmosphere, just great!
