Talk about a fantastic experience. Addison Farms is about 15 miles outside of Asheville and most certainly worth the drive, if not just for the view. As you travel up the mountain you will probably lose cell phone service and GPS but there are a few road signs for the vineyard. When we pulled up we were greeted by the family dog and welcomed warmly by the family. We did a tasting of their wines with the wife of the winemaker in their beautiful tasting room with breathtaking views.
After the tasting we were taken on a tour of the winery, which is a small little two car garage that the father built with his own two hands. We were walked through the entire wine making process and even got to smell some of the wine while it's aging in the barrel. It was amazing to see how much passion the entire family exudes as they escort you through the property. The land has been in the family for generations and they live footsteps away from the vines to ensure that they can care for each grape every single day. As a fairly young vineyard they are just now starting to make wines with their own grapes, and are continuing to plant even more. I'm confident that they will only improve with time.
