A Mountaintop Wine Experience

Thistle Meadow Winery is now shipping to select states!Located in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains near the Blue Ridge Parkway in Laurel Springs, NC, Thistle Meadow Winery offers individualized tours of our family-owned winery. Our tastings include wines made from grapes grown around the world.

we are limited to the number of guests we can accommodate at one time. Thanks for understanding.
We are not currently offering tours.

In compliance with the governor's latest orders concerning COVID-19, all patrons must bring and wear a mask while not tasting or drinking wine.

Our staff has already been wearing masks to protect you since the tasting room opened for Memorial Day weekend, and we will continue to do so while the order remains in effect. Essentially this means you should be wearing your mask as you exit your vehicle and approach the winery.

Patrons will continue to wear masks until they are served at the tasting bar, when they can then remove the mask to conduct a tasting or to drink wine that has been purchased.

It's pretty simple: Masks must be worn unless you are drinking / eating. Other exceptions may apply; we suggest you read the governor's order for further information. So if you're planning a trip to our mountaintop winery, please remember to wear your mask. Thanks for your understanding!

We create a wide variety of red, white, and blush/sweet wines, ranging in taste from dry to sweet. If you live in one of the 30+ states where our wine may be shipped, you may place your order online.

Our award-winning wines are hand-crafted in small batches to ensure the highest quality. Just recently, we were ranked third among North Carolina wineries by the South Eastern Winery Review and scored a perfect "10" in friendliness.
