Zinc House Winery and Brewery is an excellent venue to enjoy a pint and a snack from local breweries and food trucks. Close to the Mountain to Sea hiking trail, the venue makes for an beautiful and relaxing place to enjoy a sunset view and beer after a good hike. Enjoy a local beer from Bearded Bee Brewing Company in Wendell, NC. Food trucks listed in their Calendar. Dogs are welcome on the patio. There were potty bags provided on the grounds.

Wine selection & presentation: subpar Customer service: subpar The overall experience, grounds, and venue: good (honestly, not much to see) The staff lacked basic customer service and provided no acknowledgment here. This Saturday was like a daycare for dogs and kids. Lots of barking, and just overly crowded. An extremely startling experience at first. I was surprised to see the bottle we ordered was the same $10 bottle I frequently purchase from Food Lion for my Sunday brunch mimosas at home. I enjoy wineries for resetting/resting in a quiet, sophisticated atmosphere. I knew from the minute I pulled into the gravel/dirt road to Zinchouse that this was not it! Looks to be a nice venue for a special occasion. There were still some areas that looked like it wasn't complete. There are plenty of restrooms. There is plenty of seating indoors and outdoors, but with the crowds, the seating is hit or miss. I would have liked to have seen other seating besides bar stools inside. Zinchouse gave pub vibes, not winery space vibes. Overall, the individual accompanying me made my experience great, and Zinchouse didn't contribute to a unique winery experience. The customer service, wine, and ambiance are the icing on the cake, and because this experience did not really wow me, it's a 3* at best. I'm happy to have experienced Zimchpuse firsthand for myself. I'm grateful to have met a regular customer who shared that the 2nd and 3rd floors are for adults, which makes sense. I was headed there and would've learned that myself as well. I will return if invited here again, and I'm open to trying an actual wine-tasting experience, but Zinchouse will not be a part of my go-to spots.

Wow what a beautiful property! (Even on a rainy day) Great views & even better staff. This is a very spacious property, multi levels of seating, including an adults only space. First floor is family friendly & we felt very comfortable with our kids in tow. They had a food truck that was so amazing they ran out of food. The owner went above & beyond to make sure everyone was fed by ordering a tower of pizzas. This was all out of his pocket & completely free to our family & all guest. If you are looking for a wedding venue, this is a very beautiful option. (Bridal suite pictured) I would recommend checking out this property for any occasion as I plan to have my 40th birthday gathering here.

ZincHouse is a pretty wedding venue open as a bar when not booked. Great beer and wine selection you can enjoy with a view. Follow the gravel road till you arrive at the venue. You'll know when you get there and there is plenty of parking. Excited to see how this space develops.

This place was awesome! 3 levels each with at least one bar that will be open when the weather is nicer. They have beer and wine from other places, but are working on making their own. Lots of space for kids to run around, but no kids after 6PM or above the 1st level (very reasonable). Had a great time here. They even have even space you can rent for work meetings/retreats. We also learned a wedding venue is coming along with a cigar bar and distillery.

Nicely accessible to both North Raleigh and Durham. Expansive grounds and stunning architectural details - it reminds me a bit of the Sierra Nevada Brewery in Asheville. The vibe was wonderful. It feels like a Virginia winery with forest and vineyards on either side of a winding gravel drive. The place is huge yet also cozy and comfortable. Very family friendly with lots of lawn space for kids to run. They don’t serve food but there were food trucks. When we visited two weeks after opening the place was running smoothly and they were serving wines from established brands. I look forward to trying their wine hopefully soon!

Such a beautiful evening, spent drinking great beer, and walking around the property. Every single thing, right down to the hardware on their doors is quality. The service and views are fabulous! Highly recommend.

Great wedding venue and place to gather with friends. We were surprised at how great this place is. Everything is first class. The views are awesome and the staff goes out of their way to make sure you're having a great time. If you're looking for a place to gather or host an event this is a great choice.

I was able to visit this place on its opening weekend and I was certainly not disappointed. From a multi-storied main building with multiple bars and a view of grapevines growing in the field in front of it, this place does not lack an amazing views. While I did not have any of their wine, I fully enjoyed the beers that they had on tap and can certainly recommend this place for a relaxing weekend day or evening out. I look forward to going back again soon, and already have been back.

Zinc House is AMAZING! Absolutely gorgeous spaces transport you to an entirely different place. Really enjoyed talking with all of the friendly and welcoming staff as well as hearing about the great plans in place to make Zinc House the best winery/brewery and event space in the Triangle. Check out their Facebook page for details about upcoming events and live music then grab your friends, kids, and dogs and head over to Zinc House for a drink!

You have got to see this place. It is awesome! Great atmosphere and staff. Patrick the General Manager was excellent. This is a " hidden gem" but not for long.
