Located 7.5 miles from the BF Hiestand House, The Vineyard at Grandview's tasting room awaits you. The view is phenomenal! It over looks the 5 acres of meticulously groomed vines, which were planted in 2009. The beautiful oak and black walnut hardwood floors were milled from trees on the property. You may choose from eight premium wines; Chardonnay, Rose' of Pinot Noir, Crimson Quartette, a blend of four red varietals, Cabernet Sauvignon, Sun-Kissed, a semi sweet blush, Sapphire White, Ruby Red and Mom Kennel's Blackberry. Dallas loved the Blackberry. He says it satisfied his sweet tooth! I am not a dry wine lover, so I really enjoyed their sweet Sapphire White and the Blackberry. You may also pair local chocolates and cheeses with your wine for a nominal charge. Tasting hours are Saturday, 10 a.m..-4 p.m.. and Sunday, noon-4 p.m.., or by appointment. For more information, check out their website here. The Vineyard at Grandview is a member of the Mason-Dixon Wine Trail.
