Grandfather Vineyard Winery Invites You to Get Comfortable with Wine and Soft Tunes Down by the River

July 12, 2012. Grandfather Vineyard Winery will feature the Sound Traveler Band, a husband and wife duet, and a relaxing Sunday afternoon atmosphere July 15 from 2 to 5 p.m.

“It’s background-type music to sit, get comfortable and enjoy a glass of wine to,” said Steve Tatum, owner.

Bring a picnic and relax by the river while you enjoy a fine bottle of Grandfather Vineyard wine with a 10 percent discount on all bottles. Don’t forget your lawn chair.

The next music and wine event will be August 19 from 2 to 5 p.m.

Grandfather Vineyard Winery is located at 225 Vineyard Lane, Banner Elk. For more information, call 828-963-2400


The Tatums, Steve Sally, have achieved a reality that started as a dream in 2003 when they planted their first grapevines as a hobby. Since then their adventure has grown into Grandfather Vineyard and Winery, the first producing winery in Watauga County.

Steve has been a custom furniture maker since 1977 and they have owned, Tatum Galleries, a retail furniture business in Banner Elk since 1978. Now you will find Steve in the vineyard most everyday, caring for his mountain side vineyard.

Dylan, Steve and Sally’s son, is the winemaker. He has a degree in viticulture and enology and is creating a nice selection of whites, reds, rosés, and even an ice wine.
