As Stanly County's first winery in 1997, we quickly saw that this was not just going to be a wine venture. Even in the very beginning, people wanted to host parties and weddings here. We had built a tiny private room in the back that we used for intimate gatherings but for larger crowds, the tasting room was the only other option. It was quite difficult to turn our tasting room into a reception hall! We knew things had to change.
Plans were drawn and ground was broken for our very own rental facility in 2005. At the time, nothing of this magnitude had been attempted in Albemarle, NC. It was a big venture for us... a scary but exciting venture! We knew we wanted something large enough to host festivals and events but also magnificent enough for weddings and receptions. Owners, Sandon and Amy Dennis, have always liked Italian architecture and when it came time to design the interior, they went with exposed beams, textured walls, wooden floors and rustic iron chandeliers. This all came together to create a very warm and inviting feel for the venue.
Now a gorgeous, brand new venue like this needed a name. We tossed around all kinds of fancy Italian words but nothing really fit. Then one day, looking across the street at the property, Sandon said, “It's in such a pretty place in the vineyard.” That was it. “A Place in the Vineyard”. The name quickly stuck.
