Our blush and sweet wines

Blush winesBlush Wines

Bluebird Song
You'll be floating on a breeze when you try this blend of sweet blueberry and tart pomegranate flavored White Merlot. Serve chilled.
Silver Medal Winner, 2023.

Sweet Wines

Double Black
This wine gets its name from its ingredients - sweet black cherries and Pinot Noir - and is not to be confused with double black diamond runs on the ski slopes in nearby Banner Elk. Serve chilled.
Silver Medal Winner, 2022.

Horse Stomp Red
The taste and aroma of raspberries is loud and clear when it's blended with White Zinfandel. This wine was named for a small community in Alleghany County. Our top-selling wine; try this with dark chocolate! Serve chilled.
Double Gold Medal Winner, 2021. Silver Medal Winner, 2017. Bronze Medal Winner, 2018, 2019.

Lucky Black
This wine is a blackberry flavored Merlot and is one of the sweetest red wines we offer. Named after our original winery dog "Lucky", it is best served chilled.
Silver Medal Winner, 2018, 2019.

Peden White
This peach-flavored Chardonnay is a hit with the summer sippin' crowd because it's lighter (only 8% alcohol) and refreshing. The aroma is so big, you'd almost expect to find peach fuzz on the wine glass! Served chilled.
Gold Medal Winner, 2017. Silver Medal, 2015. Bronze Medal, 2018, 2019.

Twin Oaks White
This wonderfully refreshing sweet wine is strawberry flavored Riesling. It's a terrific summertime wine that was named after a small community just west of Sparta. Serve chilled.

Whitehead Red
A watermelon-flavored White Merlot, this delightful wine will make you believe you're eating a slice of ripe melon! Very refreshing when served chilled, this wine was named after a community located between Sparta and Laurel Springs.
Silver Medal Winner, 2022.

Elk Knob White
Our second batch of pumpkin wine, made from pumpkins grown in Laurel Springs by Chris Shepherd. No fake flavorings or spices added; ingredients were simply pumpkin, water, sugar, and yeast. Who says you can't make a good wine from a vegetable?!
Gold Medal Winner, 2021

Sweet/Sour Wines

Gap Civil White
A sweet Riesling wine that's been flavored with tart, crisp green apples - a unique blend that you simply must try! Gap Civil White gets its name from the old name of the county seat. Serve chilled.
Bronze Medal Winner, 2022.

New Hope Blush
We've revived Grandma's "pie in a glass", offering a sweet / tart temptation of strawberries and rhubarb blended with Riesling. The result is a tangy yet liquid version of strawberry rhubarb pie. Serve chilled.

Stone Mountain Red
Named for the giant granite dome found on the southeast boundary of Alleghany County, this blend of Sangiovese and cranberry flavors is a little less sweet and more tangy than its sister-in-wine Whitehead Red. Hike on up to more flavor!
Double Gold Medal Winner, 2021.
