Our Top 6 Western North Carolina Wineries
We always recommend Parker-Binns Vineyard to our guests, and they’ve never disappointed! This particular winery is on the Tryon Foothills Wine Trail, so it’s an excellent one to start with if you are planning on visiting a few. The owners, Bob and Karen, have a long history together– they tried to retire, but found they needed something to do! Now, they produce a variety of some of the best wines in the area. Visit on a Sunday for pizzas cooked in the outdoor oven!
Do you like French-style wines? Head to Overmountain Vineyards! This family-owned winery spans for 17 acres, and they grow most of their own grapes. Their tasting room is located in an adorable cottage overlooking the Tryon Foothills. Come with questions– they love sharing their knowledge!
Saint Paul Mountain Vineyards
We love supporting local businesses, and the land this excellent winery is located on has been in the family for more than nine generations! Saint Paul Mountain Vineyards was one of the first vineyards in Henderson County. At just 20 minutes away from Orchard Inn, it’s a great place to stop by for a glass or two.
Burntshirt Vineyards has two tasting rooms: one in Chimney Rock and one just moments away from Orchard Inn in Hendersonville. Enjoy the views of the vineyard as you sip on a variety of whites and reds. You can even tour the winery and see the equipment at work while you’re there!
Point Lookout Vineyards
Point Lookout Vineyards definitely lives up to its name– the views are gorgeous. The vineyard is perfectly situated on Point Lookout Mountain and offers 30 miles of panoramic views. You can visit and enjoy the scenery on Sunday to Tuesday from 12:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. and Wednesday through Saturday from 12:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
The Biltmore Estate Winery
We’re putting the Biltmore Estate Winery on our list because we know something a lot of visitors don’t; a free wine tasting is included in your admission to the Biltmore Estate! Many of our guests will spend the day at this gorgeous historic site, and we recommend saving some time for their winery. Because it’s so big, they have a lot of varieties you can try!
