Convenient to Catawba County residents and less than an hour from uptown Charlotte, yet a world away, the 34 acres of Catawba Farms provide the perfect setting for The Vineyard & Winery at Catawba Farms, the first winery in Catawba County.
On the property you'll find our tasting room, vineyard, picnic area, farm animals to interact with, fields to wander, as well as the historic Peacock Inn at Catawba Farms bed and breakfast.
Our tasting room experience features a guided, curated wine tasting of all of our wines. Besides a tasting, visitors may purchase wine by the glass, bottles, and cases. Food prepared at the farm is available Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.
During the winter months our tasting room moves to the Great Hall at the Peacock Inn. Enjoy a lodge-like atmosphere, complete with roaring fireplace.
Goats, pigs, chickens, rabbits, a peacock named Henry, a horse named Major Tom, and five barn cats await visitors; the goats and pigs bring smiles to young and old alike, especially when a flat palm stretched toward them contains the goat feed we have available.
Guided tours of the property, including a walk through the vineyard to learn about the varietals we have planted and a visit to the Peacock Inn, are conducted Saturdays and Sundays during the summer months. In addition, special tours and tastings are available by appointment. Please call us at 828-994-4766 to make arrangements. Also, if you are planning on bringing a large group, we ask that you please call ahead.
The Peacock Inn occupies the core of the old Sigmon farmhouse built in the late 1800’s. Beautiful antiques abound but all rooms have been recently remodeled. It is a five bedroom facility with a large master bedroom and four upper rooms for your stay. Consider booking a room at the Inn to complete a memorable weekend.
The Vineyard & Winery is easily accessible from US Highway 321 Business (Southwest Boulevard) in Newton, NC, across from Southside Park. Please enter skowly at 1670 Southwest Boulevard adjacent to the Peacock Inn, then look for signs directing you to plenty of free parking.
