Must see · Winery / Vineyard · Food & Drink
Overmountain Vineyards is a boutique winery that sits on a 70 acre family owned farm in Tryon, North Carolina. OMV grows 16 acres of french vinifera focusing primarily on Petit Manseng, an elegant aromatic white originally from southwest France as well as red varietals Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot. 2 acres of organically grown blueberries are also under cultivation for future winemaking. We use primarily estate grown fruit.

Frank Lilly, Winemaker and his daughter Sofia, Asst. Winemaker focus on developing artisanal wines which are hand crafted and distinctive. At Overmountain Vineyards innovation is at the core of everything we do. We create old world style wines with the latest in modern innovative techniques both in the vineyards as well as in the winery.

Our tasting room is open year round. During our high-season (from bud-break in the Spring through harvest in the Fall) we feature an Event Series with live concert performances, local food and always a great time! During the cooler months, our communal firepit is a popular place for gathering. The front porch offers stellar views of the Foothills and we have many areas from secluded, intimate settings to places for larger groups and gatherings available. If you are feeling adventurous, we even have a certified segment of the Overmountain Victory National Historic Trail on-site.

Please come visit, taste the difference and enjoy a truly distinctive wine experience at Overmountain Vineyards. From our family to yours!

Frank and Lita Lilly, Proprietors

  • Over mountain vineyards was a very nice place. Great atmosphere. They were busy and the 3 girls that were working did a great job. They had 2 black great Danes that just wandered around, they were beautiful. If you haven't been yet, please go.
  • This was our first visit to Overmountain, and definitely not our last! It's a very beautiful property and the atmosphere was perfect. Everyone working there was super pleasant and nice, presentation was great. Some vineyards barely acknowledge you when you are on property, but Frank and Sophia were wonderful and it felt like being welcomed into someone's home. The wine was great, especially the sangria!
