Overview

There is no better way to experience wine than right here from the source. After a tasting, you can enjoy a glass or bottle of wine, craft beer or soda, plus local cheeses while browsing the gift shop, quizzing the wino staff, or just relaxing inside or outdoors. Guests may bring a picnic & take advantage of the board games in the tasting room. We love to show our friends the winery and talk about the wine making process. Private tours & tastings are available for large and small groups, ranging from $5 to $15 per person. Sleepy Creek is a great destination to meet friends and socialize. We feature live music by original singers and songwriters, comedy, film festivals, plays & other unique entertainment. Sleepy Creek now hosts a B & W: Its like a Bed and Breakfast, but the only thing we make here is Wine, but there is a full kitchen to make what you want, when you want, and we provide the wine. Stop in to give it a look-it's a great place to have friends and family stay when you "just can't fit them" in your house.

Sleepy Creek is a very welcoming and wonderful experience. I highly recommend this place to anyone who is looking for that quiet farm type experience. The area offers other types of outdoor activities pleasing to the traveler who loves relaxing in a woodland setting.

Thank you for your feedback. Adding more food options is something we continually re-evaluate and would like to add some day. Until then, customers are always welcome to bring their own food. Watch out though...you may have to share with us! LOL!
