Nothing beats kicking back after a long day and sipping on some delicious, locally crafted vino. I’m talking about wine, of course!
Whether you prefer wine or beer, I think we can all agree that nothing beats a trip to a local winery or brewery. Western North Carolina has some of my absolute favorite beverages, and wine is so exception!
If you’ve been searching for an awesome location for date night, or simply want to try something new in Asheville or Tryon, here are my four favorite wineries in the area. Know a winery that I need to try? Please let me know in the comments!
This family-owned Tryon location is a must-try!
I recommend sitting out on the patio to enjoy the fresh summer air and sipping on a delicious glass of Sangria. Be sure to stroll through the vineyards to soak up all the beauty this amazing location has to offer.
Overmountain Vineyards features a friendly, knowledgeable staff and too many delicious wines to name!
Saint Paul Mountain Vineyards
Do yourself a favor and get the $10 wine sample! Each wine is more delicious than the last, and they have an incredible array of new drinks to try. This Hendersonville staple is the perfect place to get away… if only for the afternoon.
They also allow pets, so this is a great location for sipping wine and chilling with your favorite four-legged friend.
Laid-back and featuring a friendly staff that consistently goes above and beyond, you have to check out Metro Wines if you’re in the Asheville area. They take awesome customer service to entirely new levels, and their wine is delicious!
Sample this charming location’s seasonal wares and don’t be afraid to take some home. I highly recommend attending one of their rose tastings.
Metro Wine hosts a number of fun events, art showings, and tastings throughout the year, so be sure to browse their calendar to see what’s going on.
Embrace That Western North Carolina Lifestyle
Whether you prefer the shade and shores of Lake Lure or the towering mountains of Asheville, Western North Carolina is a magical place. Wouldn’t you love to call it home?
