Round Peak Vineyards - Mount Airy, NC
This Vineyard and winery was founded by two couples that have been friends for over twenty years and share a passion for wine. Round Peak Vineyards is situated amongst the rolling hills of the Yadkin Valley in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. From the winery you can see Fisher’s Peak, Saddle Mountain, and Round Peak, for which the vineyards are named. The vineyards sit at an elevation of 1300 feet, a terrific elevation for growing vinifera grapes. The rolling hills provide good drainage, and the climate is conducive to growing good French and Italian varieties. The maturity of their vines is evident when we tasted their latest vintages.
Don’t miss their Italian-Style DRY Rosé, and their awesome Cabernet Sauvignon.
Round Peak Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon
This could be the best Cabernet Sauvignon made in North Carolina. Medium to full bodied with classic cassis and cigar box aromas, flavors of ripe black cherry fruit, silk tannins and a hint of chocolate on the finish.
Round Peak Dry Rosé
Classic European-style dry Rosé. Pretty cherry and strawberry flavors, with fresh acidity and a vibrant, dry finish.
Round Peak Chardonnay
This is a full-bodied, flavorful Chardonnay. Flavors of vibrant, crisp pear, a touch of tangerine rind, balanced acidity and a slightly oak and vanilla finish.
