Welcome to Stonefield Cellars Winery!

  

 

 

Looking for a wonderful wine experience?

“Great wine, great people, the best in North Carolina!” – Just one of the many accolades that
Stonefield Cellars receives from guests that have visited our NC winery. Conveniently located just north of Greensboro, we offer award winning wines in a beautiful, relaxed setting.
Our Tasting Room is the perfect place for you to enjoy your wine tasting and then linger with friends, sharing a bottle and enjoying some of our cheese, cracker, and other snacks available for purchase. We always have great events going on – please check our events page for details (quick links to our calendar are to the right). 

 

REGULAR HOURS:  

Our Tasting Room is open Thursday, Friday, and Saturday Noon – 6pm, and Sunday 1-6pm. Our last wine tasting starts at 5:30pm.  If you are coming with a group of 6 or more people, please call ahead so that we can accommodate you (336-644-9908).  Want to have a party at the winery?   Our Barrel Room and other property areas are available for private party rental – see our Private Parties page.

Inclement Weather Policy:   We rarely close or cancel events due to inclement weather, but if we do, we will post it here and on Facebook.  We want you to be safe, so please use good judgement whenever you consider traveling during inclement weather.

Perfume & Pet Policy: Please do not wear perfume or cologne when visiting as it interferes with the ability to smell & taste wine and we have staff members who are highly sensative to these synthetic chemicals. Additionally, we have our very own furry greeter, Fezzick, a loving and affectionate winery cat. Although Fezzick adores humans, he doesn’t play well with other animals, so we ask that you please leave your pet at home. 

Stonefield Cellars Winery has been featured on  UNC-TV’s NC Weekend Show!
