No product has a closer relationship to its raw material than wine does it to its vineyard, and at Russian Chapel Hills Winery, we are developing a heritage of fine viticulture.
Our vineyard rests below the beautiful St. Anna Chapel, which is a part of the Eastern Diocese of the Russian Church Outside of Russia.
Visitors to Russian Chapel Hills Winery will perhaps be most delighted at being able to visit an authentic, 17th century stile Russian chapel. The chapel is not just a tourist draw attraction to us.
It is our heritage that such steps are taken, continuing in the footsteps of our ancestors who have built the beautiful churches around the world for hundred of years.
With spring in full bloom, St. Anna Chapel in the midst of the vineyard will be a lovely and welcoming sight from the winery tasting room
We hope God will bless a world class wine-making operation here, in the shadow of the Great Smoky Mountains, just south of Lake Lure.
As proprietors of an estate vineyard we use only our own grapes. This allows us to control the quality from the vine's bud break to the sorting table. Only the highest quality fruits are chosen for the production of Russian Chapel Hills Winery wines. From seven estate-grown varietals Russian Chapel Hills Winery produces dry European stile wines such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and whites Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. As well as our favorite dessert wine Muscadine.
