Strikers' Premium Winery
A unique wine tasting experience and tours upon request, this winery bottles many varieties including Athenian Red, Baco Noir, Cataawba, Cayuga White, Strawberry, Peach, Blackberry, Cherry, and Scuppernong.
The sharp turn from the main road transports you over a tiny bridge and leads you up a gentle slope to the winery itself. The rustic building reminds you of Tennessee, gentle and not overpowering, yet strong and subdued . The same can be said of the wines, each provided a very unique taste and flavor. I highly recommend the scuppernog. In the tasting room we were welcomed and made to feel at home. The owner was gracious and showed us around. We watched fish in the stream,shared a bottle of wine on a picnic blanket and gently passed the time away. It a good place to stop and linger. I 'd love to go back!
The first thing you notice when you drive up to Striker's Winery is the view, its breath taking! A creek gently meanders past the front of the property where ducks and geese wander along the bank emanates a since of peace. The shop itself has a country feel to it and is warm and inviting. Once inside, you are welcomed as a honored guest and offered samples of the many selections of premium wine produced by the winery. The prices are fair especially considering the quality of both the service and the spirits. I have tried all the wineries in this area and many abroad and I would definitely recommend Striker�s over anyplace I have visited!
