We enjoyed our visit to Iron Gate yesterday afternoon. We did a tasting of 11 wines. My boyfriend and I tend to like different wines, but we both liked the Iron Gate Green Apple. We bought that and the souvenir glasses, which are stemless. The staff was friendly, and the winery is very attractive. If we had more time, we... More

This winery is above average on the whole. The wine is good, the weekends are varied and fun with bands playing and people enjoying it. So if in the area you need to stop and smell the roses. Oh and taste the wine.

Debbie S, Owner at The Winery at Iron Gate Farm, responded to this review

William, We are grateful for your kind thoughts, especially since they include not only the quality of our wine, but also highlight weekend concerts in our outdoor courtyard. The environment we strive to create for our customers is one that is easy-going and filled with value. Thank you for recognizing both. More

We have been to this vineyard twice now. Really enjoyed this last visit. They were extremely busy the day we went, but we were acknowledged and given a tour while we waited to do a tasting. It was hard to pick which bottle of wine to purchase because everything we tasted was excellent. They also give you a good enough... More

This was the third time I've been here, and this is a gem in the rough that is the near-RTP wineries. They do seated tastings in the back room with an exceptionally knowledgeable staff member (the same each time I've gone) that recognized me (based on three visits in a span of a year and a half) and had plenty...

A group of us went at 4:30 p.m. on Saturday for a tasting. If you go, ask for the New England Retired Teacher for your tour! She was a hit for our ladies trip. In addition, be sure to show up at least an hour early. It is more than a tasting. They give a brief tour and description on... More

We had part of my bachalerete party here. Really nice people and great wine. Lady with accent was great to listen to and really was knowledgable. Only downfall is there is nothing to eat, next time will pack food ahead of time as there are nice sitting areas outside.

Our goal of course is to meet every customer's expectations with great wine and great service. In order to do that we have set some guidelines for service. During the weekends we offer a tour and seated tastings in our Special Events room. We feel this service gives each guest an opportunity to truly experience our wines and learn more... More
