About the Vineyard & Winery at Catawba Farms
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, outdoor eating 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 every day we are open
Goats, pigs, chickens, rabbits, a peacock named Henry and his partner Henrietta, as well as their offspring, a horse named Major Tom, a donkey and a zonkey, and six barn cats await visitors and we notice they bring smiles and laughter to young and older alike.
Guided tours of the property, including a walk through the vineyard to learn about the varietals we have planted, are conducted Saturdays and Sundays by appointment during the summer months. In addition, special tastings for groups of five as well as a tasting with the winemaker, are available by appointment. See details below. Please call us at 828-464-5780 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.

Please help us keep The Winery at Catawba Farms dog-friendly. Click the paw to toggle details:
- For health and sanitary reasons keep all dogs at least 10' from any food or tasting tables. Have a friend hold your dog outside while you are in the tasting room.
- All dogs must be on a leash — non-releasing/extending preferably.
- Take your dog for a walk before coming to the Vineyard & Winery.
- Keep a bag on hand...just in case.
- Do not leave your dog unattended.
- Be sure your dog is "kid and people-friendly". The Vineyard & Winery at Catawba Farms is attended by many families. Please be mindful of this.
- Please remember that not all people love or even like dogs.
If you bring a dog to the Vineyard & Winery and it starts barking at customers, biting, or starts a snarl with other dogs, you will be asked to leave.
- Outside food, wine, beer, and other beverages are not permitted. Our food trailer, Trey, is adjacent to the tasting room and serves delicious food every day we're open. We invite you to order from Trey's menu in the Tasting Room. Our servers will bring you your order as soon as it's ready. .
