Award-Winning Wine Cellar

Wine Spectator Award of Excellence

Carter's Tavern and Wine Cellar at the 1906 Pine Crest Inn is proud to be the recipient of Wine Spectator magazine's Best of Award of Excellence once again in 2013, our thirteeth year to receive this prestigious award. With this award we are recognized for our commitment to a fine wine list, with an excellent selection of better producers along with a thematic match to the menu in both price and style. The Wine Spectator Best of Award of Excellence wine lists typically offer 80-150 selections, the Pine Crest Inn Wine Cellar offers over 1,500 interesting and delicious selections, including numerous mature vintages, multi-year verticals, and sparkling, port and dessert wines.

The Tryon Wine Society

The Tryon Wine Society Wine holds a tasting every week on Thursday at the Pine Crest Inn & Restaurant. Each week a different flight of four to six wines is thoughtfully selected by your host Carl Caudle, who will provide the group with an overview and history of each wine and winery. There is also a wine dinner at least once a month. It consists of a five to seven course meal with a wine paired for each course. This is an excellent way to experience our diverse wine cellar and our wonderful gourmet meals. Winery owners and winemakers are often hosts of our wine dinners.

Wine Tastings are $7-16 for members and $10-20 for non-members (price varies depending on type and number of wines offered).

We use e-mail to keep our members informed of our weekly schedule and other special events. If you would like to subscribe to our Wine Society distribution list, please submit your e-mail address using the form below (your e-mail address will be used solely by the Pine Crest Inn and will not be distributed)
