Botanist and Barrel

Dry fruit wines, farmhouse ciders and spirituous barrels. Botanist and Barrel and the B&B tasting room are beautifully situated on Cedar Grove Blueberry Farm just north of Hillsborough. We craft a variety of barrel aged and stainless steel dry wines and ciders, using only the finest southeastern grown fruits, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, peaches and apples. We believe in light-handed winemaking using centuries old European techniques, allowing the fruits, yeast and barrels we have carefully selected to be vivid and expressive. Purchase and taste our wines, local craft beers and prepared foods, all in a scenic farm setting. Winery, cidery and tasting room is open year round except Dec-Jan. In the summer, visitors can also spend the day picking blueberries (season runs July-August). Current tasting room hours Thurs & Fri: 1 pm - 6 pm; Sat: 2 pm - 6 pm; Sun: 1 pm - 5 pm.
