Where the foothills just begin to ripple towards the Blue Ridge Mountains sits Veronét Vineyards & Winery. Only 30 minutes west of the hustle & bustle of uptown Charlotte you will find the charming town of Kings Mountain, home to our tucked away estate. Nestled on a quiet drive, our property welcomes you with beautiful pines and a long winding road. At the top of that road sits our winery, located at the highest point of the entire estate, where cooling breezes and a panoramic view of Crowders Mountain & The Pinnacle await you.
Our 70-acre estate includes five acres of vineyards, countless towering pines, and two meandering streams. Family-owned, sustainably-farmed, and passionately tended to by a team proud to be stewards of this remarkable property, each wine bearing the Veronét name is chosen, blended, and aged with the utmost care and passion.
We currently have 5 acres of land under vine, with plans to expand that number to just shy of 10 acres over the next several years. Our vineyards are hand planted on well-drained soils, made up of tatum gravelly loam and Carolina clay; the gentle slopes and full sunshine on our 70-acre estate allow for a variety of different types of grapes to grow abundantly. Cool mornings and refreshing breezes contribute to our wonderful terroir, making the estate a perfect home for our vines.
We take a sustainable approach to our Vineyard, limiting the use of herbicides and pesticides and using instead methods that are more environmentally friendly such as clay protectants and beneficial insects to combat nature's grape & vine enemies (like Sharpshooters and caterpillars). You may see a few more weeds in our Vineyard compared to others, but we feel that is a small price to pay to not have high levels of non-sustainable elements in our soil.
The vineyard serves as the perfect frame for our dazzling views of Crowders Mountain and The Pinnacle. We hope you will make time to visit and admire the view among our beautiful Cabernet Franc, Viognier, and Chambourcin vines. Our Vineyard receives a significant amount of South-Westerly wind atop our vineyard hill, helping to keep the vines cool during the hot summer days of the Carolinas.
For over two decades, our family has lived and loved in North Carolina. How can we describe our beautiful state? Beaches on one coast and mountains on the other, charming people, and the simple pleasures of life define the place we call home. When an old pine tree farm just outside of Charlotte became available, we knew that we wanted to have our own piece of rustic North Carolina to escape to. As we looked out toward the mountains and dreamed about the future, we couldn't shake the feeling that this land was meant to become a picturesque vineyard.
That feeling led us to embark on a whirlwind of research and discussion with viticulturists, farm cooperatives, and local soil experts who helped us ensure that our estate would be the ideal home for grape vines. Nearly two years of hard work turned this pine tree farm into an escape that we can’t wait to share with you. We hope our beautiful vines and stunning views take your breath away and remind you to slow down a bit, laugh a little more often, and make memories with those you love - just the way it did for us.
