We stop here every time we come to Blowing Rock. Be sure to do the wine tasting on the weekends! Perfect place to get a fabulous bottle of wine and great cheese.

Wine is great and reasonably priced. Tastings are $9 and you can purchase some delicious cheese as well. Christopher really knows his wines.

My girlfriend and I stumbled into Christopher's Wine & Cheese shop after strolling through galleries along Main Street. We're big fans of wine and cheese, and the experience lived up to our expectations.

We opted for the 6 glass tasting flight and bought a block of goat cheese from the refrigerator. In accordance with NC law, Christopher couldn't directly serve the cheese (funky, but I get why), so I found myself struggling a bit to get it out of the plastic packaging. Thankfully, he made everything as easy as possible by supplying a quality board and cheese knife. The wine included 3 whites and 3 reds - plenty of variety and each choice was selected with care to be served at exactly the right time in the process.

Christopher was a joy to chat with, both about wine and life. He's a funny guy with plenty of worldly experience, following a long career in the public health arena. He creates a very relaxed atmosphere and was one of the most welcoming people we met all of Blowing Rock (which says something since most people in the town are extremely pleasant). As we left, Christopher provided us with a fantastic dinner recommendation, even going above and beyond by sketching out a map with optimal directions to the restaurant. We'll definitely be back on our next vacation to High Country, and suggest you do too!

Was in Blowing Rock for vacation and wanted to get a local (NC state) wine for a gift. Not being wine drinkers, we always ask the staff for help. The guy was very helpful in what he thought would be a good wine from a local winery. Price was reasonable and was about the same we have paid buying wine gifts in a handful of other states. We also checked out their cheese selection which was fairly extensive. There was about six people in there drinking wine and sitting at a table. Nice wine shop.

My wife and went to Blowing Rock on a rainy weekend in July. After reading the reviews here and on FB we decided to give it a shot. It was a really good time. Christopher did a great job on the selection and expaination of each wine. We tasted reds and white, 7 different total and at the end bought one that we tasted. There was also some tasty cheese, but that was not the focus.
If you are looking for a quick pre-dinner something to do - I would recommend stopping in and doing this. Our flight was $15 per person. No glass at the end - bummer.
