Planned around an "old family farm" theme, Cavender Creek Vineyards and Winery features a c.1820 hand-hewn log cabin, disassembled and moved from Tennessee, which serves as guest accommodations. Next door is the winery, styled after an old-fashioned barn with a covered deck with a view of the vineyards and the surrounding farm scene, including a number of donkeys and "Tinkerbell and Tucker," big white pasture guardian dogs--- all adding up to a fun family experience.

Wine tastings are $10 for any four wines of your choice, which includes your souvenir tasting glass. 

Tasting room hours: Open year round: Thursday 11 p.m.-5:30 p.m., Friday and Saturday 11 p.m.-6:30 p.m., and Sunday 12:30 p.m.-5:30 p.m. We are open every day in October.

Cavender Creek Vineyards is now proudly presenting three labels of our white Petit Manseng wine, a Viognier, a Merlot, a Cabernet Sauvignon, and four labels of our American Norton red wine. We also serve four sweet muscadine wines. We have wines to suite every palate!
