Stop at this place if you like wine and could service. The guy was great we didn't pay anything to sample and didn't fell pressure to buy but we did get a bottle. Look for the outterbanks coupon book to get a free cork screw.

We stopped on our way home from OBX was a nice stop. Wines were good and the gentlemen doing the tasting was very informative and made it a fun stop. My friend and I both ended up buying a bottle of, The Plank. Will definitely be back soon.

We stopped on the way into the OBX this year (usually I don't want to make any stops bec I am excited to get to the ocean). So glad we stopped! The guy who served the tasting was great, took his time. Very knowledgeable about wine and the area. Wine was great, ended up buying 6 bottles. He recommended a... More

My wife and I love wine. We stop when ever we pass a winery and plan trips around wineries. We love to visit, taste and support local wineries in Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania, North Carolina and just about any where else traveled. With that said, on a recent trip to the Outer Banks of NC we stopped at this winery and... More

Stopped here on our way to OBX. We live near wineries in VA so wanted to try some in NC. The whites and reds were pretty good, a couple of outstanding ones, and some grape varietals that we'd not had before. unfortunately they finish the tasting with about 4 sweet wines that were awful. skip those

The tour was interesting. We went in June and didn't see the vineyards, but the tour of the back room was nice. The tasting was generously proportioned. A little saltine or water between the wines would have been helpful. I don't drink a lot of wine, but we did buy three bottles.

Stopped while we were out driving around the area, bought a bottle of wine and a gift. They have a nice choice and have tasting available, the staff that was there that day was super nice would definitely stop back if in the Outer Bank area.

If you're headed to or from the Outer Banks, then go ahead and stop here for a wine tasting and some friendly folks. We ended up only buying a single bottle just bc we have plenty of wine at home and we live close enough that we will be here again soon.

This vineyard is definitely a place to stop if you are in the area. Both the red and white wines are amazing. All the staff was great and let us take our time. They went through each wine carefully and knew everything about them. Would definitely stop in again to get more wine!
