This place is fun. There's a lot going on... music, a lot of people, and good drinks! All wrapped with an enjoyable view and a stylish setting. Even kids have fun: we went on a Sunday where they were only allowed downstairs and outside, but they had a blast playing with other kids in the courtyard and kept it going through the rain. We were lucky there were food trucks, so we enjoyed some snacks too. We'll definitely go back again with the kiddos.

Beautiful beautiful beautiful grounds. I absolutely love the European feel and the classiness.
The food trucks are a nice touch and the food I got was good. I got two different wines and they were both delicious and was a pretty good price as well. They also have live music and it made the environment even more relaxing.

This is pretty much Disney World for adults. You can easily spend the entire day here just eating and drinks. There are a bunch of food trucks with different types of food and every beverage you can think of. The property size is grand and there is tons of parking including and overflow lot with shuttle service. Live music usually starts at 7pm and it usually gets pretty busy. Bring some camping chairs or blankets too, there is tons of grass areas where you can setup shop.

ZincHouse Rocks! 🍷🍺
Wow, ZincHouse Winery and Brewery really knows how to show folks a good time! This place is a green oasis with awesome wine and brews. And the food trucks? Delicious! Can’t get enough of the laid-back vibes here. Can’t wait to go back!

This is a great place to spend some time with family and friends. 87 acres with long range views the atmosphere is one of a kind in the area. The staff is cheerful and pleasant. The only drawback is the long gravel drive to get to the buildings, but worth the effort. I hope that they pave it soon.

This place is a gem!!! A friend told me about it, I had no idea it was there! Surprised I didn’t know about it sooner but wow I was impressed! It’s very spacious and sooo beautiful! Good wines and beer, clean, friendly staff, and food trucks! Lots of different areas to sit which was nice to choose!! Can’t wait to come back!

Absolutely love this piece and it's only going to get better.
Huge venue, many bar areas. Love the restriction on kids and dogs. The staff is great and very helpful and friendly.
This place is stunning. I hate to recommend and it's only going to get busier, but also want this place to succeed as it's an adult alcohol destination.
Borrowed the photo from my friend.

I love this place. Heard about it months ago and had been meaning to check it out. Finally had a chance to do that on my birthday recently. It was great! Kids can be there (outside and on first floor of main building) until 6pm. I lucked out with seating and the group next to me moving so that we were able to find space for our group of 10+ people. The food trucks are pricey but tasty and with good variety. The service was great. Friendly people, and when I didn't care for my first choice of wine they were really nice about giving me a new one (after first giving me a taste ;))
I'm not usually a bar person but I went back again just a week later! Great middle spot for meeting friends from Durham (I'm in N Raleigh). Looking forward to many more visits.

What a beautiful and amazing place to hang out and relax. We went Saturday it was busy, but fun to get a glass of wine and walk around and explore as the grounds are gorgeous and it was very relaxing The food truck lines were long but you can also bring your own food, there were people there having picnics, birthday parties and sitting in lawn chairs relaxing. We will be back, maybe on a weeknight when not as busy.

We went for Mother’s Day and had a great time. There were a lot of people there celebrating as well. They had a couple of food trucks and live music. The grounds are beautiful but get there early if you want a seat with some shade. Next time we will pack a few chairs or a blanket. Tons of space for the kids to run around. They serve beer and wine. Bring water bottles for the kids and out side toys but NO CHALK. Bring sunscreen too. The bathrooms are nice and well kept. You’ll also love the drive up the path to the winery. They have roof top seating for 21 and older if you decide to leave the kids at home.

Stunning new winery in Durham not far from i540. Pretty packed but definitely worth a visit. The hardest part was parking. Four food trucks were onsite. Beautiful facilities. Not very handi-accessible. Great for groups, families, and even weddings. Looking forward to coming here more often.

Visited for the first time this week and I had a great time. They have a variety of wines and beers to choose from. If you have kids or pets, I would read their website first for their rules.
Their property is beautiful and has a lot of seating space. There’s a roof top bar and two
other bar areas inside. I definitely plan on returning again!

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.

Impressive! Massive! 👀 Modern with some vintage twists. This property is huge and it feels like you’re in a European countryside. It’s hard to believe this place is in the Durham/North Raleigh area. I look forward to many future visits. Currently they serve NC beer on tap and they have a large wine menu. 🍺🍷 At least one or 2 food trucks are present every day. When we visited on a Saturday, it was packed!

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.

We spent an absolutely wonderful afternoon with great friends and wine at ZincHouse. This gorgeous venue nestled in Raleigh offered wine, beer, and a great atmosphere. The people were knowledgeable and pleasant. The beers were strong and the views were spectacular. Make sure to get there early because it fills up. There are food trucks to provide savior snacks. Make sure to check the webpage for food truck availabilities.

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.
