Hickory Hill Vineyards & Winery
Roanoke natives Roger & Judy Furrow started in the early 80’s with ½ an acre experimental vineyard on Smith Mountain Lake. By 1992, they purchased a nearby farm and started the vineyard that in 2001 became Hickory Hill Vineyards & Winery.
Hickory Hill’s wine list includes Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon, along with a dry Vidal Blanc. In addition to these classic style wines, the winery produces a Smith Mountain Lake Series, which includes the blends- Mist, Country Red, Sunset and Redbud. Since opening, their wines have won 6 medals in international wine competitions. Most recent is a silver medal for the 2003 Chardonnay at the International Eastern Wine Competition.
Hickory Hill offers vineyard and winery tours, complimentary wine tastings, scenic picnic area and nature/bird hiking trail Thursday through Monday, 11 AM to 5 PM, mid-March through November. Tuesdays & Wednesdays by appointment. Closed Thanksgiving Day.
