Marked Tree Vineyard


Marked Tree Vineyard is located on the Eastern Continental Divide between Mt. Pisgah and Tryon Peak in Flat Rock, North Carolina.

Whether you are sipping wine on the Continental Divide or tasting wines by the ghost house, a marked tree is about finding your path. Marked Tree is a point along the road, a moment to reflect, a marker in life. 



In 2010, Craig and Tina Little started to imagine an estate vineyard similar to those of the great growing regions of France. So began their story to pursue a second lifelong passion: grape growing and winemaking. After successful primary careers in dentistry, they turned their attention to finding the correct vineyard site.

As part of their evolution, the vineyard is becoming a family affair and so they invite you to stop by and become part of their story as they strive for innovation and devotion in this exciting journey.

St Paul Mountain Vineyard


Saint Paul Farms is a working vineyard and orchard located in the Blue Ridge mountains of Henderson County, North Carolina. They are proud to grow the fruit for their award winning wines, ciders and spirits. They welcome you to learn about their farms and enjoy tasting a variety of locally grown French Vinifera and Normandy Style Hard Cider at any of their three tasting rooms.

Pleb Urban Winery


Loosely inspired by the Roman plebeian community who worshipped the gods of agriculture, fertility, and viticulture, Pleb too seeks to represent cultivators past and present who brought grapes to glass – the farmers, harvesters, winemakers.

Botanist and Barrel


Botanist & Barrel crafts real southern ciders, fruited sours, and wines.  Focused on spontaneous, wild cultures and light-handed winemaking, they embrace old world methods with modern sensibilities.


They support local farmers using only sustainably and organically sourced fruits, including blueberries, apples and more from their organic estate farm. Their ciders and wines are raw, wild, unfined, unfiltered & unpasteurized. They want you to feel good about what you drink.

Point Lookout Vineyard rests atop the southeast slope of Point Lookout Mountain with 30 mile panoramic views. The vines may not appreciate the scenery, but they are greeted with the morning sun and cooling mountain breezes that allow them to produce stunning wines that you will find just as wonderful as the views.

What started primarily as a grape growing operation evolved into the idea of a winery when owners Lemuel and Sandra Oates, recognizing the quality of their fruit and the opportunity to be a part of the thriving North Carolina wine industry, decided to embark on production of their own premium, estate wines.

They focus on cooler climate grape varietals, growing at higher altitudes with shorter growing seasons such as Blaufränkisch, Regent, and Saperavi to name a few. Their goal is to bring unique wines and experiences to their guests.
