We made a reservation thinking that we would need this for a tasting on a Friday afternoon. we were escorted in by a sweet hostess to table in the DINING room. When it became clear we were there only to taste, Katy smoothly escorted us to the tasting room instead, introduced us to her colleagues, and there we proceeded to have one of the nicest wine tastings that we have had since leaving California in 1997.
The staff was exceptional, knowledgeable, quirky fun and the wines were top drawer. It is rare when we buy a 50+ dollar bottle of wine, but we did so at JOLO.

We recommend this place very highly, and if it were within 20 miles of where we lived we would take company there for the experience. The owner has a lovely joyful personality and seems very proud of his fine establishment as he keeps watch over it. It was a joy as a businesswoman to watch him work the room/establishment so smoothly and conscientiously.

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.

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.

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..

Oh JOLO Winery & Vineyards we could have chosen to spend our 29th anniversary anywhere but we knew your honeymoon chateau and your End Posts Restaurant At Jolo Winery & Vineyards we’re calling our names.

Stepping into the chateau was like excusing ourselves from reality and arriving at a Parisian suite. Luscious bedding, elegant chandeliers and the feeling of nestling in the woods was perfect for a frigid January day.

Walking into the tasting room and experiencing being welcomed back by name while being cared for like royalty reminded us of why we love spending time at Jolo.
Jerry Ann treated us to glasses of your award winning Twinkles champagne style wine while Levi and every other team member that got near us wished us a happy anniversary.

Once we decided we wanted a mid day appetizer Carrie found us a table in our favorite, intimate spot, the library, where we sipped more Twinkles and dug into your scrumptious crab dip.

When it was time for dinner we took a few steps from the chateau back to the tasting room where the fire created warmth and the chatter and laughter were inviting.

Dinner in the intimate setting of End Posts began with a bottle of my favorite, award winning, Crimson Shadow proprietary red blend. It was the perfect set up for my choice of the rustic Red Wine Braised Beef and Ken Leggett’s choice of the classic Fruitte de Mar.

Finally, it was time for the decadent Chocolate Mousse Cake nestled in raspberry coulis with a piece of indulgent German Chocolate Cake ordered to go for later in the evening.

Thank you for a perfect 29th Anniversary 🥂

We have been Cuvee wine club members for several years and always look forward to the quarterly wine club luncheons and pick up parties! The food is delicious, and the atmosphere is uplifting and we always meet new friends. J. W. is so enthusiastic about his wines, and we always learn something new from his presentation. Amazing winery!

Jolo was recommended by friends at work so my husband and I made a reservation on Open Table and drove 45 minutes to scope it out. The setting is lovely and the interior warm and welcoming. We engaged in a tasting before lunch and were impressed by just how knowledgeable our hostess was. We felt the tasting was over priced, given we did not taste two of the wines. Our meal was delicious! We waited 25 minutes to be served but the wait was worth it. Fall risotto and meat loaf were prepared to perfection. We elected to have water with our meal but observed that others who ordered wine with their meal were offered the opportunity to purchase a bottle of two 'Sold Out' wines. Marketing is marketing and this may not bother some but my husband and I quickly realized that the well-trained staff had been schooled in upselling. Still, the visit was pleasant and made for a neat Sunday experience.

Now is the time to experience JoLo! Don't wait! This is by far the best wine I have tasted in NC. The winery is so much fun whether you sit outside in their beautiful garden or go inside for a delicious meal. Yes! They have great food and a good selection. After two visits this past fall, my husband and I and two friends joined the Wine Club. Yesterday, we went to our first PUP(pickup party). Not sure what I was expecting but this was a fun, very well organized event. The food was served promptly and hot (the broccoli could have been cooked a little more). The servers were all smiles and the service was great. The highlight of the event was listening to JW talk about the wines, from how they are produced, their awards and how to enjoy them. I have never had a bad experience at JoLo and can't wait to go back!

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 and I moved to North Carolina 2 years ago and spent several weekends touring the wineries. Jolo was by far the most friendly and welcoming place. We joined the wine club and thoroughly enjoy the quarterly pick up parties and meeting other members. JW and staff are great. Our membership includes a tasting for 4 and our friends still talk about the experience of meeting JW and doing the tasting with him.
The first quarter pick up party in February 2020 was great food and great wine. Very nice to see the gold and platinum wins for Jolo.
