We had lunch there in December. The winery was decorated beautifully. The menu has something for everyone, from salads to prime rib. And of course, the wine choices are varied. The service is attentive, from being seated to having dessert. If you go in warmer...More

We had visited this restaurant two years ago, and was unimpressed with the food and service. The building and surrounding grounds are lovely which made up for the lacking in the restaurant. This visit, was so much improved. Food was great and well presented. Service...More

If you were blindfolded and driven around for a period of time and then brought to this winery and took the blindfold off you would never know you were in Lexington, NC. The vineyard looks like it belongs in Tuscany. Everything is first class (would...More

I’ve been here several times for both the tour and the restaurant. The tour is nice enough though nothing special. The restaurant is slow, slow, slow. The food was okay but overpriced. It shouldn’t take 1 1/2 hours to get your food.

You would be covered by a roof open on the sides. They do have sandwiches but limited, did notice some tables were reserved.
