  • The 4 of us stopped at grandfather winery after spending most of the afternoon at Banner elk winery. I think the wine itself is better at grandfather but the atmosphere and tasting room is much better...  more »
  • Nice wine and tables right by the river. It can get crowded so go early. Parking can sometimes be a problem because of the crowds.  more »
  • We enjoyed wine tastings with friends, it was great that they had multiple wine tasting menus. The vineyards are beautiful and the creek was a nice place to relax while enjoying a wonderful glass of wine!
  • Beautiful vineyard with great wine and an incredible location. Beautiful creekside seating along with a patio often filled with wine enthusiasts. Excellent place to bring lunch, relax, and enjoy a bite with a great bottle of vino.
  • Our first time left a lasting impression, and the weather was even overcast. So many idyllic areas to relax and enjoy your wine, and the selection itself is very well balanced. They even started selling ciders as part of a joint partnership with ASUs fermentation group. Make sure to say hello to the friendly border collie roaming the property.
  • Beautiful scenery and great wine. Lots of outdoor seating and a very pretty creek. This is a great place to bring your dog and relax.
  • Sally is the family matriarch and quite a lovely lady both in spirit and good looks! The hospitality here is second to none, the ambiance, the setting and all the buildings combine to make this a place in the high country that you shouldn't miss!
