Owner description: Owner and wine maker Mitchell Smith, along with his wife Susie, began their journey into wine making in 2004. Since that time Mitchell has expanded his personal love of wine making into an operational winery in Newport, North Carolina. Mitchell carefully selects the highest quality fruit available for his wines. He often travels many miles to make sure that only the best ingredients are used in his wine making process. Lake Road Winery specializes in wines made with North Carolina fruits and berries. Lake Road Winery in Newport, NC, near the beaches of the Crystal Coast in Carteret County, North Carolina produce some of Eastern North Carolina's finest domestic wines. Lake Road Winery is just minutes away from Atlantic Beach, Emerald Isle, Swansboro, Morehead City and Beaufort. Our winery is also convenient to our neighbors in Craven County.

The service is exceptionally good. Felt right at home instantly. And the wines are as unique as the venue. Truly a worth while trip!

“Absolutely amazing!”
Reviewed July 26, 2014 via mobile

Absolutely amazing people, atmosphere, and wines! Best rainy day activity on the coast! Mitchell Smith and French are great. Glass on the patio is a wonderful and relaxing way to spend a sunny afternoon. Also great place to buy gifts!

“Don't miss this hidden treasure.”
Reviewed June 29, 2014

Luckily we live near this little treasure. We love to take friends and family with us, but often go as a couple. Well worth the drive off Hwy 70 or Hwy 24 .... just enter the address in your GPS. Mitchell is a very entertaining and gracious host! You will enjoy his wonderful NC Wines and great conversation during your visit. A wine tasting is only $5. If you are visiting one of the beaches along the Crystal Coast, add this to your itinerary. Perfect place to go after a morning on the beach. If you'd like, bring dinner or lunch in a basket and sit out on the patio. There are also tables inside if the weather isn't cooperating.
