Open: Year Round
Lu Mil Vineyard sits on the family farm site of the late Lucille and Miller Taylor, on Suggs-Taylor Rd, in Dublin, NC. The vineyard was named in their honor.Â The Taylor family has been a leader in agricultural equipment development for many years; the family farm site has served as a testing ground for their innovative creations. As a way to test their ideas for new machinery for the growing viticulture industry, their Muscadine vineyard was born. The vineyard has grown to over 58 acres in the last five years.
With the grapes producing well, the first estate wines were produced from Lu Mil Vineyard's 2005 Muscadine grape harvest, and, in December 2005 the vineyard's Gift Shop and Tasting Room officially opened to the public. Lu Mil Vineyard offers Muscadine wines as: Old Cumberland, Taylor Divine, Bladen Blush, Harmony Hall, Cape Owen Red, Sir Walter Raleigh and Merry Christmas, a limited production seasonal wine.Â Additionally, jellies, jams, alcohol free wines, juices, ciders, sauces, syrup and grape seed extract pills have been produced from Lu Mil's vines.
Lu Mil Vineyard is a family friendly, multi-use facility. By renovating one of the farm's barns, The Barrel Room, was created.Â It is a beautiful space for receptions, parties, reunions, and other events. In October 2006, Lu Mil Vineyard opened the doors to its largest facility, an 8,000 sq. ft. building, which houses our Gift Shop and Tasting Room, as well as "Creekside" (our 6,000 sq. ft. entertainment venue with a state-of-the-art audio/video system) which will accommodate up to 550 seated guests.Â The wrap-around covered porches provide a lovely spot to relax and view the scenic vineyard and enjoy a cool beverage. "The Barrel Room", "Creekside" and Lu Mil's outdoor facilities are available to groups who want to play host to events large or small.
Â The "Vineyard Cabins" have spectacular views of our expansive vineyard and beautiful lakes.Â They sleep two to four comfortably and come equipped with all linens, refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker and full bath and porches that overlook the vineyard and water. Cabins #1, 2 & 3 also include a red heart-shaped Whirlpool tub.Â All six cabins are available for nightly rental.Â Cabins #4, 5 & 6 were completed in the summer of 2011.Â
"The Taylor House" is available for overnight stays. It is a four-bedroom ranch style house located on the grounds.Â Decorated reminiscent of the 1970's; you can step back in time at the home place of Lucille and Miller Taylor.
