In the shadows of the Great Smoky Mountains, there's an old stone building with bars on the windows that overlooks our small vineyard. Legend has it that the local lawman locked up the hooligans here to cool down until they went before the magistrate. Now we use the calaboose to incarcerate our wine before it makes its escape to you!

We are the smallest free-standing, complete winery in America located just up the river from the Smoky Mountain Expressway in far Western North Carolina.

If you're driving from Chattanooga or Cleveland, TN to white water rafting on the Nantahala River, the Great Smoky Mountain Railroad in Bryson City, or the Great Smoky Mountains National Park; then pull off the "four-lane" in Andrews and pay us a visit!




Hey mac, you better not be makin' any hooch when the Revinoor comes knockin' on your door. If you are, give 'im some of this wine. Better yet, offer it up with brunch or dessert. And if that doesn't work, you can always make a clean sneak out the back.
