  • This is a beautiful place well worth the drive. The wine are extremely good the service is great, people are so friendly. 
  • We drove 17 miles in the rain from the B&B where we were spending our first anniversary, only to find the winery closed! The website specifically stated that they would be open on December 31 (see pho...  read more »
  • Made a late Thursday afternoon stop for a tasting while traveling east from Asheville. As another reviewer mentioned, it is well off the beaten path. Picked it for its eastern-most proximity to I 85 a...  read more »
  • Enjoyed our time with Keith & Kimberly today. Loved every one of the sweet wines we tried. The winery is awesome and very beautiful. The decor looks like your in Tuscany. This is a must stop on your wine tasting tour. We like muscadine wines the most so we really liked the selection. Couldn't find nicer farmers. Our tasting lasted 2 hours because we talked so much. Going back definitely. Feel like we've known them for years. 👍🏻🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
  • Decent place and nice place to chill out with some wine. Tasting is a little pricey, $8 without glass. Seemed like all the dry reds tasted pretty much the same.
  • Lovely local winery with wines that get better and better every year! Check out unusual NC grown varieties like Petit Manseng, Touriga, and Petit Verdot! Also, the wine pourer (Pam, you rock!) was very friendly, knowledgeable, and tolerant of silly antics from customers (e.g., discussions on bird-window collisions, lamentations about other wineries, and comments on "mintiness"). Overall, this winery is developing quality wines and has a wonderful staff that can turn a frown upside down!
  • Wife and I stopped by last summer from Raleigh after a nice drive through the countryside. Nice grounds. Walked inside. No employees or greeters around. Went to the bar where we stood among 4 others in the middle of a wine taste which I figured we could join. Stood there for about five minutes. Lady behind bar never made eye contact with us and ignored us. Hung around for another 10 minutes just admiring the building then left back to Raleigh. A waste of a stop. Great drive to and from though.
  • My husband and I drove from Raleigh. We had a wonderful time!! We visit often and always enjoy ourselves. We walked in and there were people doing a tasting at the bar so we browsed around a little and waited for the next tasting. The lady behind the bar said hello and I'll be with you once I finish this tasting. However, if she had not acknowledge me it was quite clear she was helping someone at the bar ahead of me. My husband and I love visiting wineries because you get away from the hustle and bustle. I don't know what the gentleman was talking about not being greeted by a greeter. I've been to many wineries, and never have I been greeted by a greeter. I believe some city people see a large winery and forget it is FARMING. Most people working at wineries are not Sommeliers, and I am always amazed when I read some of the poor reviews given to many Exceptional North Carolina Wineries because of the knowledge people expect from all of the employees. Maybe some people should ask to schedule a meeting with the wine maker for a fee. These negative reviews are a true disservice to the NC Wine Industry because some peoples expectations are very Unrealistic for an inexpensive wine tasting. In fact my husband and I went to a wine tasting in Virginia. There wine tasting was given to us with a tier of 5 wine glasses. Each glass had a different wine and a piece of paper with a description for us to read as we sat at a table with no one describing the wines. People never take the time to say nice things they just always complain. Go visit the Rock of Ages Winery. You will have a great time and enjoy some great wine, but don't be in a hurry. Relax and enjoy the visit. If someone is at the bar doing a wine tasting be patient they will be right with you. "LIVE, LAUGH, LOVE"
