Yonah Mountain Vineyards is located in a pretty hillside setting and produces some of the area’s finest wines, including a lush Estate Meritage with hints of berries, clove and caramel; and a classic, smooth-finishing Chardonnay. The Tasting Room is open in the afternoons every day, and until 9:00 p.m. on Saturdays when there is live music. The winery also hosts a 90-minute Cave Tour and Tasting that offers an in-depth look at its wine-making process. Advance reservations are required for this.

Here at Lucille’s Mountaintop Inn & Spa, you can enjoy a glass of Yonah Mountain Vineyards wine any day of the week as you relax on the deck on in the comfort of your room. Give us a call and book a stay soon!
