JOLO Winery & Vineyards
This is a great place to go for food, wine, socialize, and listen to live music when then have it.
The view and grounds are beautiful, the dinning area is rustic with lots of windows to allow you to enjoy the view.
As for the wines, typical NC wines a little young and not as robust in taste as i would like.
But i recommend going to the vineyard on a day they have music, you will enjoy!
The shrimp risotto was very good as was the spinach artichoke dip. The lobster ravioli was good but missing something. Overall, very nice experience!
I brought my friend for a belated birthday wine Tasting and lunch. Her first comment while we drove along JOLO’s vine-flanked driveway was how beautiful a setting the winery has, with Pilot Mountain in the background. The tasting was delicious and we enjoyed a bottle of our favorite, Pilot Fog, for lunch. While l like all the dishes l’ve had, l tried the deconstructed chicken cordon Bleu this time and it was delicious! JW and his family and staff are always enthusiastic and proud of their winery, as well they should be!
Great food and wine, excellent atmosphere.
Excellent food, ambiance, service and, of course, wine. We love the view of Pilot Mountain as we enjoy our food and wine. It can sometimes get loud depending on the other guests. Wine does make some people very loud and obnoxious, but that is just a minor concern. JOLO is a great way to spend a lazy day.
The food appeared to be not made on site, I could be wrong. But really didn't the ingredients were fresh nor was the food freshly made.
Beautifully decorated, comfortable seating, inspiring setting. A no-rush, delicious and intimate experience. Loved the red wine, lamb and starters. Waitstaff friendly & personable without getting in the way. They treat you well. Chowder was a bit too peppery, staff appreciated us saying so. Lamb, wine, starters & sides as expected and excellent. We’ll be back! With friends!
Great food and service. Young waiter. Knew answers to our every question-about food,about wine. The two reds we tried were both good and better in my opinion than wines from several local vineyards. We would definitely go back.
Excellent food and service. We will definitely go back again.
We Always enjoy the food and the ambience at jolo such an amazing place!
I really love jolo vineyards...
JW was not there this Saturday night.. but the staff was very friendly very clean and the food was delicious..!
Me and Karen thank you for a wonderful dinner..
Valentines dinner. Very nice
We had the best time for our Valentines Dinner! The food was out of this world, service was outstanding, and of course the wine was AMAZING!!!! I was very impressed with the chefs and how they perfected every dish and the flavor of the food was superb!!!
Not only does Jolo make the best wine around, the food for our valentines dinner was amazing.
We “stumbled” across this beautiful winery and restaurant by chance while we were out driving around on our date! We had a wonderful meal, classy atmosphere and great wine! We will for sure be back!
parking might need to be addressed as you continue to Grow! What a nice problem to give attention to. very prompt and courteous waitstaff.
Place is beautiful but very commercial as a wine and restaurant. Food was good but little pricey for what you got. Wine was excellent. Definitely go back in spring time when all is in bloom
The food, wine, and service was wonderful! Loved the outdoor seating with great views. The restaurant and winery are beautiful. I will definitely go back!
Always impeccable wine, food, and service. I highly recommend JOLO!
Wow, this is truly one of those places you need to visit to believe. From turning up with our daughter (2) to the meal we were greeted by staff with genuine passion. We happened to meet the owner who again was very dapper and had time to come and see us in the restaurant, we are now members and will be visiting with guests regularly. The food was of superb quality and portions size showing great value. The wine.......well the awards speak for themselves but Pilot Fog is exquisite.
Stopped in for a tasting and stayed for lunch. Adorable winery and great restaurant. Food was delicious will be back!
Lovely people and setting. Would make a return visit
Delectable food--hats off to the relatively new chef!--to pair with superb wines, the best in NC (low bar, yes, but getting higher all the time). Wonderfully relaxed atmosphere, and owners JW/Kristen have the perfect touch with guests familiar and new.
A visit to JoLo for lunch at End Posts is always a treat! We love taking friends there to enjoy the excellent food and exceptional wine. Never, ever disappointed in quality, service, atmosphere, knowledge and friendliness of staff. All 5 star!
Wonderful Sunday lunch, very attentive service,and great food and wine!
Wife’s birthday lunch.
We did the wine tasting.
Absolutely floored by the Chambourcin wines in the Crimson Creek and Crimson Creek Reserve!
Jolotage was fantastic as well.
We were introduced to their wine club and joined immediately.
It’s a great deal and well worth joining for all the extras and discounts.
The property is amazing.
The only real issue is the gravel driveway and inadequate amount of parking.
We like to ride our Goldwing to visit wineries in the area and here it would be problematic.
I’m sure they have plans to address this in their future.
Definitely recommend putting Jolo winery on your list.
I had a reservation and we were seated at my table for 20 minutes before anyone acknowledged me. We couldn't even get a glass of water. after we finished eating we were told we only have 10 minutes left at our table and they need to seat the next reservation. Instead of staying for the wine tasting we went to another local winery and we were much happier.
The wine is good but not worth the price. Food was mediocre at best. Beautiful location and venue, but the value was most definitely lacking. There are other wineries in the area I would recommend first and would not recommend having lunch there.
Very beautiful place and great atmosphere. Wine was just ok. They have a reserve red but have to be a wine club member in order to purchase. Food was pretty good but way overpriced for what you got. It’s it a shame since this is such a beautiful place but I never go back.
Our first visit but not our last. Great food, service was a little lax but we knew that the Wine Club was there for pickup. Our young man Max was running from room to room trying to serve guests. Management may need to address that in times of wine pickup?
Ambience wonderful and views stunning! Wonderful wine especially the Golden Hallow and the Crimson Creek! All in all a great time had by all!
Beautiful restaurant and great food! We enjoyed the view and live music.
Absolutely excellent food! A rather small venue the seating could be a challenge so be smart and book ahead. I strongly recommend based upon my experience.
JOLO was amazing! We all really enjoyed our visit. The new menu was good as well.
Enjoyed lunch with another couple at Jo-Lo. A very pleasant experience.
