Quick said that the owner is Alex Monroe and he grew up in Whiteville. Quick said that Monroe moved his business to the Elizabethtown Industrial Park and while walking his dog at the park he noticed the winery. Two years ago, Monroe decided to purchase the winery.
“First and foremost we are a vineyard. We are a winery. We offer both muscadine and other wines and we have a full service restaurant,” said Quick.
She said some amenities offered by Cape Fear Vineyard and Winery include outdoor dining, a barrel bistro, and a ballroom.
Quick said there is a Tuscan feel to ballroom and next weekend the ballroom will host its first event. She said the ballroom can seat about 250 individuals.
They also offer cottages for overnight and weekend stays. Currently the vineyard offers four cottages and there is a bridal suite and four executive suites. Quick said the vineyard also offers the classic hotel room.
Quick also said that the vineyard also features an amphitheater called The Landing which is located beside the lake.
There is also a petting zoo that features a variety of animals including llamas, five miniature donkeys, five miniature horses, pheasants and chickens, wild turkey, ducks and rabbits.
Quick said the property also features over 200 Camellias which were planted with the assistance of the Fayetteville Camellia Club. A rose garden is planned to enhance the property.
