This was the third time I've been here, and this is a gem in the rough that is the near-RTP wineries. They do seated tastings in the back room with an exceptionally knowledgeable staff member (the same each time I've gone) that recognized me (based on three visits in a span of a year and a half) and had plenty...

A group of us went at 4:30 p.m. on Saturday for a tasting. If you go, ask for the New England Retired Teacher for your tour! She was a hit for our ladies trip. In addition, be sure to show up at least an hour early. It is more than a tasting. They give a brief tour and description on... More

We had part of my bachalerete party here. Really nice people and great wine. Lady with accent was great to listen to and really was knowledgable. Only downfall is there is nothing to eat, next time will pack food ahead of time as there are nice sitting areas outside.

We drove from Charlotte and arrived at 5:20. We were told they stop seating for tastings at 5 even though the close at 6. What a bust.

Our goal of course is to meet every customer's expectations with great wine and great service. In order to do that we have set some guidelines for service. During the weekends we offer a tour and seated tastings in our Special Events room. We feel this service gives each guest an opportunity to truly experience our wines and learn more... More

Nice clean little wine operations. Staff were very friendly and knowledgeable in making wine. I recommend the tasting and the Green Apple wine.

The wine is average at best, it may be that we don't prefer sweet wines. This winery has a lot of sweet wines and in our opinion they aren't made very well, just our opinion. They also charge $7 for a tasting fee and claim to have 12 wines, only 6 were available. However if you like N. Carolina wines... More

This was the final stop of 3 on our winery tour for our group of 19 visiting the Chapel Hill area. Since we had called ahead, they had a reception area at a seated table set up for us after the tour portion concluded. Our group enjoyed the tasting and appreciated the knowledgable presenter. We were impressed with a portion... More

I've been to more wineries than the average bear, and have recently started exploring the NC options. This was one of the best wineries that I've been to yet in the state. They did a seated wine tasting of 12+ wines, with a very knowledgeable staff member that knew lots of information on the wines (much more than your typical... More
