Ferncrest Winery

1060 Main Street
Andrews, NC 28901

History:

Kurt and Jan Olson started as home wine makers using wine making kits. We bought our first grapes to make wine in 2007. 

In the Snowbird Mountains above the Western Carolina Regional Airport, we planted a small vineyard of Chardonel, Vidal Blanc and Cynthiana grape vines in 2010. We began making wine from them in 2013.  Both the 2013 Chardonel and 2013 Vidal Blanc won Gold medals at the Wine Maker's Magazine's International Amateur Competition in 2014.  

Our Vidal Blanc won a Gold medal and our Chardonel and Cynthiana won Silver medals at the 2016 Asheville Wine and Food Festival. Our Vidal Blanc won another Gold and our Chardonel won Silver at the NC State Fair 2016.

We have partnered with vineyards in the local area and North Carolina to purchase their grapes to make great wines. We want to share all our wines with you.

The name FernCrest is based on the house and winery being on the crest of a hill and Kurt grows ferns. Our logo is a family crest with a fern and fiddle head.  The top of the crest is a representation of the Snowbird Mountains. All our wines are named after Ferns.
