Lake James Cellars
James Cellars is a family owned and run winery located in the foothills
of North Carolina. Our name comes from the nearby beautiful Lake
James. Step through the leaded-glass front doors of our restored
1915 textile mill building, located in Glen
Alpine, NC and taste the magnificent flavors of our fine wines.
We have a variety of handcrafted
wines - created from local NC fruits, as well as fruits from
around the world. Whether you enjoy a dry
red wine, a dry white wine or
a fruity sweet wine, we have wines
you will enjoy. Visit our charming Gift shop and Tasting Room as
you sample our Lake James Cellars bottled wine. Enjoy a slower pace
of life as you relax on our covered porch with a glass of wine and
wait for the train to come by. Stop in for a Wine Tasting during our normal hours (no appointment necessary). Our tastings are $6.00 (plus tax) and you get to choose any six of our wines and also take a Lake James Cellars glass home with you.
Be sure to take time to stroll through the aisles
of the Old Mill Antiques located in the same building. Here you will find a variety of high
quality antiques from over 20 different antique dealers. Truly a
"unique shopping experience."
Lake James Cellars can provide Private Labels for your wine shop, restaurant or business. We can also provide Custom Labels for special events such as weddings, anniversaries, birthdays and Christmas gifts.
Take advantage of the benefits offered through The LJC Wine Club.
We also sell a variety of winemaking supplies and equipment for the home winemaker.
