Originally, the winery was built on a 20 acre working blueberry farm which has been recognized as the premier blueberry farm in North Carolina. Vintner Dick Wolfe has used the local berries to create blueberry wine and blueberry port which has received award recognition.
Wines are currently being developed from many varieties of grapes, and vintner Dick Wolfe has planted many varieties of grapes new to the North Carolina High Country with great success.
