85 Dr. Zimmerman Road, Lexington, NC
Junius Lindsay Zimmerman and his bride Beatrice Estelle Evans looked for a place to begin their new life in 1894 and bought the acreage where the vineyard now lies. Junius Lindsay cleared the land and farmed it until he was 90 years old.
The 11 acre vineyard, first planted in 2004, is nestled among forests and streams on the soil that has been proudly farmed by the family for over a century.
Grape varieties include Viognier, a rare white grape that originated in Condrieu, in France’s Northern Rhine Valley, over 2000 years ago. Other varieties, all native to the Rhine Valley, include Syrah, Petite Sirah, Grenache and Roussanne. As NC Vine put it so well, “If you want a true sense of a French vineyard, then Junius Lindsay is the place to go”.
In just a few short years, Junius Lindsay Wines have gained national acclaim and recognition. They are available for purchase at the Vineyards and other locations, retail locations listed on website.
