Welcome to Belle Nicho
It's been a great run, but Belle Nicho Winery is now permanently closed. Thanks to all our great customers over the years!
French Chic meets Southern StyleWelcome to Belle Nicho Winery at Howling Dog Farm. We are a small farmstead winery adding our own Southern style to our wines since 2012. However, Janet and Bridget’s journey actually began in 2007, following a visit with Frank and Debra Bolden at South Creek Vineyards and Winery. During the spring of 2008, Belle Nicho initiated their first Vineyard Work Day, with many faithful friends planting vines and laying mulch.
Belle Nicho produces wine using native, French-American hybrid and vinifera grapes as well as fruit. Since 2008, they have planted Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cynthiana, Isabella and Seyval Blanc. Belle Nicho has also partnered with other wineries to purchase grapes for use in wine production.
We welcome visitors to the Farm and Winery throughout the year to tour the vineyard or relax by the tasting room. The winery is open from Friday to Sunday from 12 noon to 5pm.
And there's more too...
It's not just the wines that get people talking at Belle Nicho. We are proud to offer jelly and juice made from our Isabella grapes and a wonderful assortment of other locally made produce of the highest quality, including honey and sorghum made the old fashioned way!
And don't forget to pick up those beautiful glasses too, a great memento of the friends you will make at Belle Nicho Winery.
Catawba Valley Wine TrailBelle Nicho is a short driving distance to three other wineries that cooperate in several Sip! Stop! and Savor! Wine Hops during the year.
Winery Tasting Room Ribbon Cutting - October 13, 2013
We produce wines from native grapes, french hybrids, fruit and vinifera. Our wines range from dry through semi- sweet to a lovely sweet red.
We feel there is something to suit every taste at Belle Nicho Winery.
Chambourcin is a French American hybrid grape variety that produces an aromatic red or blush wine.
Our Rose is made from 100% Cabernet Franc grapes. Skins were left on the grapes briefly before fermentation to impart the lovely color.
Traminette is a crisp dry white wine with a wonderful floral aroma and spicy flavor. Great accompaniment to Asian, poultry and seafood dishes.
