Sample The World.
Westbend Winery and Brewery has worked tirelessly to collect some of the finest wines we could get our hands on from all over the globe to complement our estate collection. We invite you to come into our tasting room to Sample the World!
First our first vines planted in 1972, Westbend Winery and Brewery is the oldest operating vinifera vineyard in the state of North Carolina. We take great pride in holding the mantel of such great distinction and strive to live up to the Westbend legacy with every bottle we produce.
A rocking bouquet of smoked black fruits, espresso, chocolate, and tobacco that gives way to a full-bodied, plump, incredibly sexy red that does everything right. It's one serious mouthful of Merlot and should keep for 10-12 years.
Earthy aromas and flavors of oven-dried tomatoes, barnyard wood and mud, pomegranate, and cajeta with a supple, bright, dryish medium body and a tingling, interesting, medium-long finish with impressions of herb marinated roasted root vegetables, smoked nuts, cedar, and sandalwood with soft, dusty tannins and light oak flavor.
This lavish wine matches loud oak spice on the nose with equally bold jammy fruit on the full palate, without the tannins becoming too oppressive. It has aromas of vanilla, nutmeg and toasted bread plus tasty blackberry, blueberry and dark chocolate flavors.
This medium coral colored Grenache based opens with a little effervescence. On the nose, a rose petal, wet stone and wild strawberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and juicy. The flavor profile is a mineral influenced red cherry and lime blend with notes of red raspberry tea.

Carl Graff Riesling
Mosel, Germany- Hints of canned fruit cocktail and preserved peach are a touch cloying at first but refreshingly balanced in this straightforward off-dry Riesling. A juicy, easygoing sip anchored by fresh lemon-lime acidity.
Sun Garden Gewurtraminer
Pflaz, Germany- Just a dash of sweetness accentuates this wine's soft fruity nature. It's a fresh fruity Gewürztraminer offering juicy grapefruit and white-peach flavors balanced by citrusy acidity.
Floriography Blooming White
Western Coast, South Africa- an explosion of aroma and flavor. It has prominent muscat flavors with apricot and floral notes on the nose. A well balanced wine with a delicate sweetness and crisp acidity.
Red Tree Moscato
Central San Joaquin Valley, California- Soft and slightly spritzy with nectarine, sweet honey, and rose petal flavors and crisp acidity.
Pflaz, Germany- Sweet and velvety, this is a fruity, easy-drinking wine offering loads of juicy black cherry and raspberry flavors. Brisk acidity and a delicate tannic fringe keep it from being too cloying
Dormaine Houchart Cotes de Provence
Cotes de Provence, France- This lively, crisp wine gives both intense acidity and great fruitiness. It’s bright, with a line of fresh red currant flavors
Ernesto Catena Tikal
Mendoza, Argentina- This seductive Malbec offers gorgeous scents of red cherry and mocha on the nose that follow through on the palate picking up additional notes of plum and spice. Elegantly balanced, this Malbec is a winner!
Castle Rock Cabernet
California- Aromas of blackberry, cassis and a hint of herbs and spice develop in the glass. In the mouth, the wine is well-textured with flavors of blackberry and cassis. The lingering finish softens with a touch of clove and vanilla. An instant classic!
Geyersville, California- Co-fermented with Viognier, the Syrah expresses violet, tar, and rich earth. Petite Sirah from Alexander Valley brings chewy bitter chocolate, while Grenache grown at 1400 feet elevation in the Yorkville highlands keeps the wine bright and juicy. Full-bodied and fleshy, this wine is dark and brooding yet silky and smooth.
King Estate Pinot Noir
Willamette Valley, Washington- Holds a dark garnet color with cherry red edges. The bouquet jumps out of the glass with ripe strawberries and raspberries with secondary notes of black tea, and earthen aromas. Rich dark cherries abound on the palate with fresh strawberry, sweet oak and vanilla flavors. This wine has a round and full mouthfeel upfront with supple tannins and a fresh, generous finish.
Lagaria Pinot Grigio
Veneto, Italy- A very fruity, almost peach juice-like wine with layers of honeydew melon and apricot. There's an interesting tug of war between sweet and sour in the mouth
Pascal Jolivet Attitude
Loire, France- Expressive floral and fruit aromas, freshness and minerality in the mouth. This is textbook Sauvignon Blanc from the Loire. Attitude Sauvignon Blanc is produced from an estate owned single vineyard.
Navarra, Spain- Light gold colored, explode from the glass with citrus fruit, melon, and hints of honey.
Route Stock Chardonnay
Carneros, California- The wine shows a beautiful light straw color with seductive aromas of lemon curd, lemon thyme and ginger. The wine fills the pallet beautifully with a brightness combined ever so nicely with richness that also shows the Carneros regions strengths to the best degree.
