Thistle Meadow Winery

102 Thistle Meadow
Laurel Springs, NC 28644


Open: Year Round


Created by entrepreneur Tom Burgiss, a retired pharmacist, Thistle Meadow Winery is in its 14th year of operation. Still a small, family run business, the winery produces over 3000 cases of wine each year.

Located in one of the luscious valleys of Laurel Springs in Alleghany County, Thistle Meadow Winery has some 60 varieties of wines available year around. Wines are made in small batches which allows for blending the complex flavors of the many grapes used from all over the world. Of course the winery welcomes visitors anytime during the year, but our favorite seasons are late spring, summer, and fall. However, there are many blustery days during the winter months when there is nothing better to do than come visit us and taste our wines. We encourage folks to come and taste the difference.
