“A Beautiful Place!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Overmountain Vineyards is set in the foothills of South Carolina with a beautiful mountain view. It is an idyllic setting for sitting under the trees, enjoying wine with friends. The owner is very knowledgeable and offers a wide variety of wines for tasting. The standout for us was the muscadine. It had a fragrance and taste that were exactly like the fruit but without the overbearing sweetness we have come to expect. It is a delicate masterpiece! The other wines are sophisticated and the flavors are delectable. The tasting was very good but devoid of extras. This is a place to pick your favorite wine, sit down in the shade and have a beautiful afternoon.

“A Perfect Day!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

OMV is hands-down the best vineyard we've ever visited! Our time there began with a 2-mile hike along the Overmountain Victory Historic Trail, where we shared a private picnic along a quiet stream. Returning to the vineyard, we received a friendly greeting from the owners and Jackson, their resident Great Dane. The atmosphere they have created at the vineyard, from the beautiful grounds to the inviting tasting room, provides visitors with the most relaxing experience. And, everything we just described isn't the best part: the WINES created there are AMAZING! Frank, the winemaker, clearly knows how to take ANY grape and help it become the best wine possible, with the minimum of additives or sugars. We really appreciated his minimalist approach to winemaking. What you will remember most about your visit to OMV is enjoying your final glass of wine there, sitting in the sunshine in the adirondack chairs and overlooking the vineyards. A must see!

“What a surprise !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

If you are in the Hendersonville /Tryon area of North Carolina a little pearl has appeared. This family run vineyard is just what the doctor ordered to experience a pleasant tasting with a knowledgeable hostess. The sun was out and the chairs were ready. After the tasting with cigar in hand we all drank a glass of our favorite. We were kept company by Jackson the proprietors great dane. He also provided the entertainment. For a new vineyard ( grapes in ground 13 years) the selections were varied and very tasty and remarkably good. Their hallmark wine is a white port. This a perfect way to top off a shopping trip to Hendersonville or after a round of golf in the foothills.
