About Linville Falls Winery
A Commitment to the Craft ...
Family owned and operated, Linville Falls Winery is the culmination of a life-long passion for wine by owner, Jack Wiseman. Wiseman had dreamed of growing grapes and opening a winery since he was eight, and now he and his family are pioneering a new High Country wine in Linville, North Carolina. With its staple grapes Riesling and Cabernet Sauvignon, a fruit farm and blueberry fields, the winery is perfectly situated at 3200 feet with warm days, cool nights and richly nourished soil. This magical combination produces a wine unique to the region and unlike anywhere else on earth.
Jack Wiseman knows a thing or two about agriculture. For more than 60 years, he has been at the forefront of the burgeoning Fraser fir industry pioneering the species on Roan Mountain. Today, he grows, manages and distributes the largest annual Christmas tree harvest in the region.
To be completely dedicated to the craft of winemaking, Wiseman brought a seasoned and passionate wine maker to lead the wine making effort. Rick Donley was previously director of Appalachian State University’s enology and viticulture department and spent years as Wine Maker with Glen Ellen and Gundlach Bundschu wineries in Sonoma, California. His background includes a degree in enology and viticulture, a graduate degree in food chemistry and almost 30 years in the wine industry.
Together, Wiseman and Donley’s shared commitment to wine making excellence creates a symphony of world-class wines that are simply delicious.
