We went to the winery with some friends from Greensboro and really enjoyed the experience. The winery itself is very large with a Gift shop/tasting room, a Bistro, cellars, a reception room and an outdoor concert/seating area. The ground are beautiful and the main building is on par with anything you would find in California. It has to be one... More

Don't miss this one. Childress Vineyards is a beautiful spot. The grounds are gorgeous, particularly when the vines are covered with grapes; the facility is as striking as anything I've seen in California wine country; and the Bistro serves up some wonderful, wonderful food . . . from the margarita pizza to the pimento burger to the shrimp and grits....

Did a wine tasting not knowing what to expect. Wines were really good and the hostess was very informative. We returned later to try the Bistro at the winery and it did not disappoint. Really nice lunch and curtious staff. Highly recommend if your in the Lexington area.

Food was wonderful, service and staff were great and all with a nice relaxing view. I would recommend it to anyone in search of an enjoyable outing. The gift shop... More

We had lunch at the Bistro and we had a great experience. This is not my first time as we always enjoy taking friends from out of town. Again, no surprises, as every thing was great. The wine selection while paring them with your meal is a plus, and you want to do some shopping for gifts, you won't want... More

Whether you eat there or just tour the vineyard, or buy something from the shops, this is a reason to head to Lexington NC. It is a really nice place to see. We've been there several times, and one thing many might miss, but is really worth the stop is the thrift store in one of the shops next to... More
