Parker-Binns Vineyard is a family owned and operated vineyard in Tryon, North Carolina. What began as 10 acres of 4,000 grapevines has since grown into a 40-acre vineyard with over 6,5000 grapevines. In addition to their fabulous wines, you can also take in beautiful views of the surrounding meadows, rolling green hills, and Blue Ridge Mountains. Their outdoor covered patio is an especially great place to relax and enjoy western North Carolina’s beautiful weather. The warm and welcoming atmosphere and excellent wines will make you feel right at home. Read on to learn what you can look forward to when you visit the tasting room.

Parker-Binns Vineyard has won gold, silver, and bronze medals from San Francisco, the Finger Lakes in New York, the Asheville Food and Wine Show, and more. There’s a little bit of everything on the menu, including cabernet, rose, sparkling, and ciders. We recommend ordering a flight for a proper taste of the vineyard!
