Owl’s Eye Vineyard – North Carolina Winery, Winery Tours and Events

We are an exciting  vineyard located in the beautiful Piedmont of North Carolina. We bring loads of experience and a wonderful new dimension of wine making to an upcoming and exciting part of the country!

Whether you  are a wine connoisseur or are just beginning to explore wine, we are happy to give you a memorable and enjoyable experience. We are located 2.5 miles from the historic downtown Shelby courtsquare. We offer tours, tastings and private events.  Our winery tasting room is an open and welcoming venue for private parties, fun gatherings, work-related events, wedding receptions and rehearsal dinners.


Upcoming Events:


Sunday May 24:  Julie Gribble (guitar and vocals) from 3-5.  This is Julie’s second Sunday appearance at Owl’s Eye. Julie lives in Atlanta, and is making regular swings through North Carolina.

Friday May 29:  Owl’s Eye will host a group of Porshe owners from North Georgia. They are coming for a wine tasting at noon and for lunch afterwards.  We expect to have over 20 Porsches in our parking lot for the early part of the afternoon.

Sunday May 31:  Amber Faulhaber (guitar, keyboard and vocals) from 3-5.  This will be Amber’s second appearance at the winery.  Amber teaches music in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg School System, and is a talented musician in her own right.

**The Tasting Room and patio will be closed this Saturday May 9th and on May 30th for a private party, but we welcome customers to the crush pad.  Thank you.


May flowers (and vines) are in bloom!  We are releasing our first Merlot this weekend.  The name, Merlot, likely comes from the French word, “merle” which means blackbird.  Merlot grapes are dark blue/purple/almost black, and have been cultivated and made into wine for centuries.  



Thursday-Saturday Noon-6:00 PM, Sunday 1:00-6:00 PM.     

Come relax on our patio, enjoy tasting our wines while you savor the beauty of the South Mountains in the background.  We’re waiting for you.

We welcome leashed pets.  We do have small cheese and fruit plates available for sale, if you are not in a picnic frame of mind.  There is no prettier view in Cleveland County than the one from our patio…great wines and warm hospitality—a winning combination.
