Fainting Goat Vineyards: An Appalachian Gem

A Name with a Story Perched amidst the scenic beauty of the Appalachian foothills lies Fainting Goat Vineyards. Named whimsically after an exhausting day in the vines, the vineyard indeed shelters four enchanting fainting goats: Ronnie, Reagan, Dolley, and Mamie, always eager to greet guests.

The Heart of Wine Crafting Under the loving stewardship of Dave and Robin Higginbotham, Fainting Goat Vineyards radiates passion. Their journey, tracing back to a self-sustaining Ohio farm, embodies their profound respect for the land and their ambition to encapsulate that love in every bottle they craft. The wines, sourced from premium certified French vines, present a palette of robust reds, vibrant whites, and enchanting blends.

Tasting Experiences and Events The vineyard's tasting room invites visitors to a unique experience, serving delightful wine flights. Weekends vibrate with local artists' melodies, and special events, like the Sunset Concert Series, enhance the venue's charm. Guests can also indulge in available delectable bites such as charcuterie.

A Welcoming Atmosphere Families, including their furry members, are warmly embraced. While the titular goats offer playful interaction, Teddy & Rosie, the vineyard's guardian Great Pyrenees dogs, diligently watch over, enjoying visitors' company.

Family and Values at the Core The Higginbotham family's values shine brightly in their vineyard operations. From their farming days in Ohio to their current endeavors, their legacy of cherishing the earth and celebrating family remains unwavering. As they often say, "Come for the wine, stay for the view." At Fainting Goat Vineyards, every visitor finds a welcoming seat, an engaging story, and a celebratory glass of wine.
