Located on 310 lush acres, the winery and restaurant opened in 2003. Wines are produced in small quantities here, and are only available at the winery. The staff is friendly and informative, and the tasting room is mellow with a touch of class. After sampling some wines, stop into the restaurant for a quick bite. Start off with The Butcher’s Platter (the chef’s selection of cured meats and sausage, olives, capers & bread) or an artisan cheese platter. For the main course, indulge in a Flat Iron Steak, Braised Short Rib or African Black Bass. All meats are all natural and hormone-free. End your day of tasting at the sweet and enchanting Briar Rose Winery. This upscale boutique winery has a special charm to it; it was made to be a replica of Snow White’s house by a former Disney designer, and the grounds feature a rose garden, stone walls and manicured lawns.

A real-life fairy tale setting, Briar Rose specializes is red varietals and has gathered a cult-like following. Briar Rose was the first “appointment-only” winery in the valley.
