We really enjoyed our trip to Mountain Cove. Our pourer was extremely friendly and knowledgeable, and we had a great conversation. The wines were tasty, and it was interesting to learn more about vegan wine. Definitely recommend a visit.

Great wine and great location. Off the ways a bit with a 5 mile hiking trail in sight. The lady working was very friendly and hospitable. The tasting was free, however we left with 3 bottles and some jam!

the oldest of the current era of wineries- established in '79, Mountain Cove has a mid level group of wines with a remarkable setting to sit outside and enjoy a glass or a bottle with friends. Easy, relaxed, and well worth visiting.
