19 Delicious Wineries In & Near Asheville

Are you looking for some of the best wineries in Asheville, NC? As locals, we’ll share our favorite Asheville wineries, go-to AVL wine bars, and the top wineries near Asheville.

It’s no secret that we are from Connecticut and love the CT wine trail. Then, we moved to Florida where citrus wines and the muscadine grape ruled. Eh…

We’ve also wine tasted all over the world with some of our favorites being the Sicilian, French, and Portuguese vineyards. I prefer deep and spicy reds and an oaked Chardonnay, smooth Chenin Blanc, or Gewürztraminer.

With that said, North Carolina produces quite a few delicious wines, and they aren’t all sweet. So, if you are headed to WNC, what are some of the best wineries near Asheville that you can visit?

Are there even any Asheville wineries and wine bars in the sea of foamy beer? Plus, are the wineries any good?

We have a few favorite vineyards near Asheville, including the Hendersonville wineries like Point Lookout, Stone Ashe, and Sawyer Springs.

The Tryon foothills are a bit further out from Asheville but produce even more varietals at family-run farms like Parker-Binns. Don’t forget Linville Falls Winery, too, near Grandfather Mountain.

Below, we’ll share not-to-miss wineries in and near Asheville, what to expect, and what to drink. All of these wineries are under one hour and 45 minutes driving distance from Asheville. Let’s get started!

Need to soak up all of that NC wine? Don’t miss The Best Asheville Restaurants for some local grub.

Asheville Wineries

Let’s start with the wineries in Asheville, NC like Biltmore and plēb.

P.S. Some of our wine tastings — as noted below — were sponsored in collaboration directly with the establishment or Tabletop Media Group/NC Wine.

On occasion, we received compensated or free tours, wine tastings, and meals. Our reviews of each Asheville winery remain unbiased, and we had absolutely no obligation to include them on our lists.

The NC Muscadine Grape Association held an informational tasting about NC wines and Muscadine Grapes with all of the NC wine people, including my alter ego, The Uncorked Librarian. Like Florida, the muscadine grape is also popular in Eastern North Carolina — but not always for me. You can pick muscadine grapes at some of the vineyards. Did you know that you could make pies with muscadines?

1. Biltmore Winery

Address: 1 Lodge St, Asheville, NC 28803
Website: https://www.biltmore.com/

Wineries In Asheville NC Biltmore Estate with picture of Biltmore home
A local icon and the biggest home in America, Biltmore houses one of the largest wineries in Asheville, NC. You will need to purchase a ticket in order to enter the grounds — but it’s definitely worth it!

Biltmore Estate is famous as the largest home in the United States. George and Edith Vanderbilt built this gorgeous residence.

We’ve attended multiple sponsored wine tours at Biltmore. We can honestly say that we love all that Biltmore offers for wine lovers: tours, wine, the gift shop, and wine bar. You can also easily spend a full day on the Estate.

Some of the Biltmore wines are fantastic, and others…well, you decide.

Biltmore visitors must pay for a full-priced ticket to enter Biltmore winery, even if you aren’t planning on touring the house.

Tickets start at about $60+, and they include seeing the home, having access to all of the grounds, trails, and restaurants, and a free wine tasting.

We are annual passholders, mostly for the 22 miles of hiking trails and Biltmore Winery (wine discounts!).

P.S. Biltmore’s Winery is fairly young. In 1985, the winery took over Biltmore’s former dairy space.

Fun fact: As you walk through the tunnel to the tasting room and wine store, that’s where they used to transport the cow manure. We love this little tidbit of information because the tunnel is gorgeously lit at Christmas. You’d just never know…

Wine tasting is included in admission to Biltmore (bottom left). You can add on additional tours such as the Red Wine & Chocolate Tour (top left) or Behind The Scenes Winery Tour (right).

Biltmore Wine Tours

Visitors learn more about Biltmore wines on their Behind The Scenes Winery Tour — where you also taste their premium wines and see how champagne is made.

With a small group, enjoy a private wine tasting separate from the public tasting area. We loved this tour, which is $10.

A second Biltmore wine tour that we’ve enjoyed even though we are lactose-intolerant includes the Red Wine and Chocolate Tour.

For $35 a person, you receive a shorter winery tour. Then, head to Biltmore’s clock and bell tower for the tasting. The chocolates come from the infamous French Broad Chocolates — another Asheville must.

Know that Biltmore’s blue foil wines are local NC grapes, and the black labels are only sold on the property.

Don’t miss all of the fabulous Biltmore tours you can take.

Biltmore Wine

Biltmore has endless varieties of wine. For whites, we like the Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc, and Gewurztraminer. For reds, the Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Barbera are delicious.

They also have Rosé, sparkling wine, and seasonal wines with gorgeous labels — just to name a few.

Biltmore Location

For Asheville wineries, Biltmore is both iconic and at the center of it all. The address for Biltmore is 1 Lodge St, Asheville, NC 28803. They can be reached at 800.411.3812.

Plan on drinking all of the wine? You can also stay overnight at The Village Hotel on Biltmore Estate or The Inn On Biltmore Estate.

Marked Tree Vineyard is a new 2020 winery near Asheville located in Flat Rock, NC. We headed here on a foggy night and fell in love with the spooky ambiance.

There are numerous outdoor seating areas around the winery — picnic tables, Adirondack chairs, and cafe tables — and you’ll even spot a few ancient fireplaces throughout the property.

Back in the day, people believed that ghosts settled in the fireplaces. When someone tore down a house, the fireplace remained.

We always love finding a sporadic stone fireplace across North Carolina. Along with this fireplace at Marked Tree Vineyard, you can see another one at the Hickory Nut Gorge Trailhead. Photo by Sarah Resta Photography.

Out of all of the wineries near Asheville, most unique to Marked Tree Vineyard is their gorgeous wine bottle labels filled with sketches of trees, owls, and their dogs.

They host special wine club events along with yoga and forest bathing. Their sweet furry family members wander the property. We are wine club members here.

Marked Tree Vineyard Wines

Their Chardonel is almost like a Moscato play on a Chardonnay, and you’ll find a Cab Franc and Rosé, too. You can also take a wine tour.

This WNC winery is also perfect after a morning exploring Grandfather Mountain or hiking parts of Linville Falls. Let’s face it: after walking across the Mile High Swinging Bridge, you might need a drink…or two.

Pack a picnic and pull up an Adirondack chair as kids catch and release fish by the pond. Unique to Linville Falls Winery, they offer table service and will come to you.

In the winter, you can choose and cut your own Christmas tree.

Wineries In Hendersonville

Did you know that Hendersonville is not only famous for its apple orchards and cideries but also for its wine?

Hendersonville houses many of our favorite tasting rooms and vineyards near Asheville that are less than 45-minutes away.

The Hendersonville wineries are also pretty close to each other. We recommend either having a designated driver or staying nearby and ridesharing to see them all. While some have food, you can also use GrubHub delivery.

One of the first wineries near Asheville that we visited before moving here, Saint Paul Mountain Farms is incredibly cozy with delicious wines.

They have three locations: A vineyard in Hendersonville — which we will talk about here — a cidery, and a Flat Rock location.

If you are looking for a quieter, family-run winery about 35 minutes from Asheville, head over to Sawyer Springs Vineyard.

We enjoyed a sponsored wine tasting at Sawyer Springs, and we are so glad: This Hendersonville winery and family farm was not originally on our Western North Carolina vineyard radar.

One of the closest wineries to Asheville along with Addison Farms, find “dusty boots, stained hands, and classic wine.”

As we drove up the gravel road, Paul — the proprietor — waved us in, and his daughters conduct the wine tastings. Sawyer Springs selects 6 wines each day for their tastings.

We picked up grinders on the way in from Joey’s NY Bagels and sat outside on their picnic tables overlooking the vineyards. You will also find springs in back of the property filled with black rock.

Sawyer Springs offers weekend yoga and has delicious rotating food trucks.

Where can you grab delicious on-site burgers and wine? Parker-Binns Vineyard in Mill Spring — also located in the Tryon Foothills.

Plan to visit Overmountain Vineyards, Mountain Brook, and Parker-Binns on the same day since you are making the drive; Overmountain and Parker-Binns, for example, are about 8 minutes apart from each other.

Like many of the wineries near Asheville, Parker-Binns is a multi-generation, family-run winery and vineyard. They also have an Airbnb on property.

You’ll most likely catch almost all of the family at some point sharing their love of wine throughout the property. If you have a chance, geek out with their winemaker, Justin, too.

(Sadly, both the Rustic Grape and Sante Wine Bar closed in 2020)

Where Can You Stay Near The Asheville Wineries & Wine Bars?

Aloft – Downtown Asheville  – If you are looking to stay in downtown Asheville, the Aloft hotel is newly renovated as of 2020. Vibrant local murals, updated rooms, and hipster public areas greet visitors.

They host live music, have a sexy new bar, and the patio space overlooks bustling downtown AVL, amazing for people-watching. Did I mention there is a rooftop pool overlooking the mountains?

Hampton Inn And Suites Asheville Biltmore Area  – Although this hotel is on busy Brevard Road – NC-191 – across from the Asheville Outlets, it’s one of our favorites before moving to Asheville.

Clean, updated, and in the middle of everything, you can access downtown, Biltmore, and the Blue Ridge Parkway fairly quickly. Plus, you can grab a quick breakfast with tons of food options nearby if you want a hiking lunch for the road.

Where can you stay if touring the wineries near Hendersonville & Flat Rock?

1898 Waverly Inn Bed and Breakfast — While house hunting, we stayed at this sweet B&B. We loved their social happy hour and friendly hosts. You can walk into downtown Hendersonville, NC from here.

The Charleston Inn — If The Waverly is booked, these guys are right next door and look equally awesome.

Love the Doctor Who reference! Do you know how the wineries have been affected by covid? In the summer will restrictions be lifted?

Hi Danielle,

Right now, I'm pretty sure that most of the wineries are all operating and open -- but some with limited hours and capacity. We've been to most of these on the list fairly recently and all was good. If you'd like me to look into a specific Asheville or WNC winery for you, though, please let me know!

NC recently lifted a few restrictions; I am not sure where we will be this summer. This is the official NC hub for more information: https://www.nc.gov/covid19. I definitely recommend checking their updates if you are planning a visit.

I definitely want to visit some wineries when I come visit. Of course I have to see the Biltmore after hearing so much about it from you. It looks beautiful. Lots to explore there! You had me at furry animals wandering the property with the Marked Tree Vineyard. I definitely have to go there! Burntshirt looks stunning. Definitely need to see it and drink ALL their wine. What is the weeping angel fountain reference? I wish I knew! P.s. I’ve never heard of gewürztraminer wine but now I want to try it just because it sounds cool.

I love that when you write about these spots you also let us know the other things in the area that you do. Great for planning an itinerary! Your blog will totally get me ready for a trip to Asheville one day. Great post!!

You would love the Asheville wineries. Biltmore is a classic. There is so much to do there, and we go often.

I can imagine all of the dog pictures that you would take at Marked Tree Vineyards, for sure. ; )

The weeping angel is a Dr. Who reference, hehe. When you aren't looking at them, the angels come to life...to off you...it's seriously creepy!

Thanks so much! Come visit after this crazy year!
