    The best wine in North Carolina
    Beautiful grounds, impeccable service, friendly employees and the most charismatic wine maker anywhere (JW Ray). JW has built an amazing winery which I believe makes the best wine in North Carolina. His awards are impressive and his wines rival the best wines from Napa Valley. I highly recommend JoLo if you enjoy good wine!

    Tour de vin
    We had an amazing time at the annual Tour de Vin. All of the courses were delicious and paired perfectly with a JoLo wine. As always the staff was wonderful and spending time in the JoLo event center is always a joy. Another fantastic experience.

    Jolo is the best wine in NC and beyond!
    I was so surprised the first time I had good wine in NC....and it was at JOLO! Not only is the wine terrific but the atmosphere, view, hospitality and don't forget the fabulous food is extraordinary! I also stayed in the Chateau one night which was the perfect end to a perfect wine dinner evening and I hope to repeat it very soon.

    In a world that's been turned upside down, JOLO gets it RIGHT!
    The wine is fantastic. The food is 5 star exceptional. And the venue is lovely. And in addition to all that, the entire staff has managed to fully embrace the idea of "excellent customer service," the likes of which we haven't seen or experienced anywhere over the last many years. We, like most everyone, I imagine, have forgotten what it's like to be surrounded by and attended to by people who truly love what they do and believe impeccable customer service is the foundation of a successful business. It was our first visit to JOLO but certainly not our last. My words can't convey how incredible this winery is. So I'm resorting to telling all my family and friends so they can see for themselves!

    Cuvée experience and recommendation
    The Cuvée experience was awesome as always. The wine and food pairings were phenomenal. Jolo always is wonderful when you go there for tastings, eat at the restaurant, pickup parties or go for a leisure time. The owner and staff are always customer friendly. I highly recommend!!

    Jolo leading the growing list of great wineries
    For 6 years we have been visiting the wineries in the Yadkin valley. Our very first one was Jolo. Five years later the very best one is Jolo. Shelton is so very close. I am a fan of their food and their wine. Five years ago it was not great. Now it really is. I wish I lived closer. The entire valley has great experiences. The passion found at each winery is incredible. The personal investment and devotion is palpable. I have little experience elsewhere…but I do not need to look farther. Each year there are new wineries opening. Terrific fun!

    WOW!!!
    The view is amazing. The facility is beautiful. The wine is amazing. What is a great time with your loved ones or a business associate (or group)? A time at JOLO. What a great atmosphere and location. The wine takes the cake. Wow, so delicious. I began my wine voyage with white wines after my experiences with JOLO and beginning an understanding of wine I have selected their red wines time and again. The descriptions provided add to the enjoyment. JW Ray the owner and winemaker is happy to discuss wine with his customers (and probably anyone). He is such an enthusiastic and thoughtful person that takes time with others. So, not only are you able to eat amazing food, drink delectable wine you will also be entertained by a person passionate about their craft. I highly recommend JOLO. Go and enjoy yourself… you deserve it.

    Benefits of joining the wine club!
    Joking the JOLO wine club was such a good decision! Not only do you get 3 excellent wines each quarter - with some that are only available to members - but you get a delicious lunch and best of all, an educational presentation by owner/winemaker/ proprietor extraordinaire JW Ray. JW’s discussions about the wine growing, harvesting and making process are educational and also entertaining. Plus, sometimes he throws in some accurate information about the soil, terrain and history of the Pilot Mountain region. We look forward to the pick-up party every quarter!

    Brunch & Wine tasting-became a member 🤩 🍷
    Delightful day, our 1st visit. It was for a birthday brunch at 11am, an hour drive from home. We did a wine tasting at 1:30. Beautiful vistas all around with rolling hills on 80 acres with rows of grape vines in each direction. Highly recommend a visit. We joined as members for their quarterly program. Unexpected for us to do. Our service at brunch was enjoyable with a great window view. Our tasting with Samira was superb with great depth of their wines & history of the converted home to winery. Samira explained the membership & we loved the wines, just lucky to live so close…. But hey, they ship too if in the area passing through. Our favorite wine is the Jolotage Reserve red blend. My surprise was a Sweet Vermouth at the end, an incredible dessert wine. I guess you can tell we will be back.

This vineyard is an absolute disappointment. We visited it on a Friday around 3:00, in the hopes of beating any type of rush. We were disappointed with everything from the wine to the lack of service. We are still very cautious with the pandemic still ongoing but it was my birthday so we decided to try this vineyard. We were told they would not do flights in lieu of tastings, even though we were going to pay 40.00 per flight. We then told them we felt more comfortable outside with our tasting/flight and were told they could not accommodate. So they lost 80 dollars from the get beginning and they were not busy tat this time. We then decided to blindly pick a bottle based off of the description. The wine was too sweet and it was an expensive mistake, but we were given no other choice but to guess. We then did not see a waiter/waitress for the rest of our time there. My husband went inside to add an item to our dinner order take out order and add a glass of a different wine, in hopes of salvaging my birthday celebration. We waited over 20 minutes without that glass of wine. We went to cancel the glass and pay out tab and there were no apologies or explanations. For an hour and half drive and very large tab we left very disappointed. We will not waist our time or money on Jolo vineyard again. Hopefully we can help you save your time and money. We have had much better experiences at Shelton vineyards & Childress vineyards and their respective restaurants. Their is too much competition in the area for Jolo to treat their customers with such dismissiveness..

JW, Kristen and the entire JOLO team once again provided a fantastical day of appreciation for club members. The food was excellent, the attention and service is hands down the best anywhere. I love it that they know us by name …and of course the wine.

This was our 4th year anniversary month of being club members… it’s a delight to see how they have grown and adapted to a growing membership base.

Praying for a bumper harvest and no weather events. Looking forward to Crimson Creek and Pilot Fog returning to the line up.

Carlous xii was our choice for the day. Rich and yum!

JOLO is a must stop when you are in the area ~ and worth the drive if you aren’t.

Been there a few times and decided to join the wine club. We’ve travels to Napa and CA wine region for 30+ years, belong to a number of CA wine clubs (Ovid, David Author, Chateau Potelle, Chappellet,etc), Jolo club is a great deal, especially for locals. Very good wines, great pick-up parties hosted by the owner who brings knowledge and humor to these events. Great atmosphere overlooking the mountains along with good food and service.

The Vertical Tasting of Crimson Creek was the perfect way to spend an afternoon. Owner/winemaker/chef JW Ray guided us through vantages 2016-2019 of JoLo’s award winning Crimson Creek, pairing each vintage with a culinary treat that was as beautiful as the wine. It was artistry of food and wine at its best! Lots of laughter went into the mix, as well! Being a club member at JoLo is one of the most enjoyable aspects of our lives...especially during a pandemic when “fun” is difficult to find!

Throughly enjoyed my time at Jolo today. JW and Christin are great hosts. Wonderful atmosphere and facilities and superb wine. Really enjoyed the 2019 Crimson Creek
It was smooth, full bodied with a rich aroma and smooth taste. Very savory and delicious. This is a first class operation in every respect

JoLo Winery is an excellent, classy locale full of deep appreciation for their tasters, club members, and diners. Due to their immense hospitality and blends of great vino, we joined their Premier Club level membership. You won’t find a better place full of great wine, culinary masterpieces, and superb vistas. The owner is top notch who has always been visible, friendly, and present to make you feel welcomed. Moreover, he is a true master of his art in wine making. I would highly recommend this as a place to stop in for a tasting and meal as you won’t be disappointed.

My wife & I enjoyed a very nice visit to JOLO this past weekend. Even though we'd arrived a little earlier than our reservation time, they were able to get us seated pretty quickly. The staff were all doing their best to maintain everybody's "social distance", and nearly everyone had a mask on. The service was quick, and we both really enjoyed our meals.
It was a bit "rushed" feeling during our wine tasting, however. Everyone tried their best to keep up, but the additional strain of maintaining distance meant that the staff had to work a bit harder than they might have otherwise. Very nice wines - a bit more on the "dry" side, but all wonderfully flavorful and enjoyable.

I have enjoyed wineries in California, Oregon, Washington, Texas and Georgia, so I considered myself a winery aficionado. However, I had not expected JOLO to exceed my expectations!! I thought, "How could a winery in Pilot Mt. NC be very good?" Well, it's not very good. It is absolutely exceptional in every way. The architecture, decor, landscape, setting and best of all, amazingly high quality wines blew us away! There are several blends that have been carefully devised and produced that rival anything I have tasted elsewhere. It didn't surprise us to find out that they have won a lot of medals in prestigious competitions on both coasts.
I signed up for the club so I could continue to get the wines delivered to our home in Florida, but would really like to drive up to experience the "pick up" parties!
A real plus was meeting the couple who created this winery and the extra special input that JW brought to the tasting! Club manager Jerry Ann poured and explained in great detail the nuances and varietals of everything we were offered.

Jolo Vineyards is a wonderful outing for anyone who loves wine. The atmosphere is very welcoming. The restaurant was able to accommodate my need for a gluten free meal with ease. The wines are delicious. I am not a wine connoisseur, just a ordinary person who enjoys wine. After tasting the wines, I immediately joined the Jolo Wine club.

We had a great time at the Q1, 2022, wine club pick-up party. JOLO always schedules several dates each quarter to accommodate the wine club membership that has now reached 2400 members. This is a major effort, but Owners JW and Kristen and the entire staff never fail to make everyone feel at home while passionately delivering world class wines, great food and outstanding customer service in a wonderful environment.
