Wine on the River!
Jul 2021
Grab a table and chair by the river with some wine and enjoy the day. We really enjoyed the atmosphere. I'm not a wine person so I won't comment on that but I enjoyed this place.

A corner of heaven on earth
Jun 2021
OMG! I didn't think this could get any better! We just finished our botteling and labeling tour and the staff is amazing. We had so much fun. Stephanie and Nicole met us at the door and put us into a group for our experience. Dylan explained the wine making process from grapes to barrels, Bryan explained what happens from barrels to bottles and we got to see the difference in different years of the same wines. The most fun was botteling and labeling with Brad. The wine from this place is better than most of the wine I have had in Europe and the US but what makes this place breathtaking is the people. Beautiful surroundings, great music, great food, lots of puppies and a delicious bottle of wine....is this heaven?

A great R&R at Grandfather Vineyard.
Jun 2021 • Couples
Decided after several days of hiking and exploring the area we could run to a winery. Grandfather vineyards was a wonderful surprise. I had read in another review to bring lawn chairs but we never used them. We lucked into some very comfortable Adirondack chairs. We purchased two flights one was the reds, the other was the sweet wines. Both had some wines we enjoyed. I added some cheese and crackers, my bill was around $43. These were enjoyed by a babbling creek where we could hear music being played and watched several vineyard dogs chase sticks in the water and kids playing in the water and crossing rocks. Absolutely a relaxing day to spend an afternoon.

Rude service
Jun 2021 • Couples
Would not recommend. Asked for a sweet flight. Lady in front of me got one. I asked for one and was told no with no explanation. When I inquired a little further the lady was extremely rude and told me they were out and I was too late. It was an hour and 15 minutes from closing. I understand they do a last call 30 minutes from closing but she could have been nicer about it if they were out of flight glasses. The same experience happened to others behind me. Very disappointed and will not be back or recommend my friends.

Lovely fun place

This is a fun place with a beautiful atmosphere! Even if you don't drink their Muscadine Juice is amazing. They had music as well and a good selection of wines.

Just go.... it's lovely!
Nov 2020
Small vineyard and winery near Banner Elk and Boone, North Carolina. When the weather is nice you can sit by the vineyard, under cover, or in the sunshine, or by the stream, which is very relaxing. Wine is nice. Great atmosphere. You might even happen upon some live music while you're there. We love Grandfather Winery.

Very good wine in a lovely setting
Oct 2020
We enjoyed a 2 1/2 day stay with friends in the Boone / Blowing Rock / Banner Elk area. We always enjoy visiting wineries and Grandfather Vineyard and Winery proved to be one of our favorites on our 10 day Blue Ridge Parkway getaway.

The outdoor setting is lovely, with wonderful views of the mountains and nearby stream. There were dozens of tables, all safely spread apart. Even though the weather had turned chilly, there was live music (an unexpected surprise), food trucks and lots of very good wine. Sometimes the southern wineries concentrate too much on sweet and fruity wines, but not here. There was a wide range of whites and reds, both dry and sweet.

We were very pleased with our visit and plan to come again when we are next in the area.

We'll be back!
Oct 2020
We were at the winery two afternoons last week and it was wonderful both days. The weather was great, the live music was entertaining, the atmosphere was relaxing, and the wine was superb! We had the "Fusion" red wine blend, full body and smooth. Sally and Steve Tatum even sat with us one afternoon and told us how the winery started and how their son is the main wine maker now. Some of the ASU students that are in the wine making class come out and do hands-on work with the vines, grape crushing, bottling, and tasting. What a beautiful vineyard and setting with Grandfather Mt. as a back drop. It is a must if you are in the area. Dan and Cindi Alman
