What we liked: After our visit on Saturday, we decided it provides several great opportunities for our Durham moms. First, the vineyards open Friday-Sunday 12pm-5pm would be perfect for a moms' glass of wine. I can definitely see heading out there before a dinner out with the girls at someplace near Southpoint like maybe The Melting Pot. You can purchase a lovely glass of wine for $5 and sit out on their tables overlooking their lake and vines before you head to dinner. In addition, I can actually see taking the kids in certain situations. They do have a beautiful lake, grassy areas, and picnic tables. So, it would be possible to head over and have a glass of wine while the kids play outdoors.
What we would change: As can be expected, the tasting room is not particularly kid-friendly. (Why would a tasting room be?) There are displays of bottles at toddler height. So, if you're going for a tasting, you might want to leave the kids at home. (Tasting are $5 including a souvenir glass.)
