About the property

Come enjoy a get-away weekend in the heart of North Carolina wine country, sample some great wines, walk in the vineyards, and relax with the spectacular sunsets over the Blue Ridge Mountains. We are dog-friendly, with a great fenced-in play area! Located just off I-77 and I-74 near Mt Airy, and only 9 miles off the Blue Ridge Parkway, our winery house at Round Peak Vineyards is a great stopping point even if you are just passing through! A free wine tasting for up to 8 people is included. There is also an 18 hole disc golf course on site.

In May 2011 we renovated the winery house, remodeling both bathrooms, adding a 4th bedroom, and opening up the floor plan to create a great venue for parties of up to 8 people to relax and have fun.

Round Peak Vineyards is located in the Yadkin Valley AVA, sitting at 1300 ft. in elevation in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. We currently have 11 acres of vineyards producing 12 French and Italian varietals. All of our award-winning wines are estate bottled, using only the grapes grown in our vineyard. Come taste our award-winning wines and tour our winery! Then enjoy the many activities in the surround areas, including over 30 nearby wineries.

About Ken Gulaian

Hi everyone! We are Kari Heerdt and Ken Gulaian, and as the owners of Round Peak Vineyards, we'd like to introduce ourselves and our team. We met in Cincinnati in 1998 when we both worked for General Electric. We moved to Charlotte, NC in 2000 for a new job opportunity, loved it, and decided North Carolina was where we would stay. Careers got in the way though, and in 2006 we moved to San Francisco for Kari's work. This proved to be instrumental since it resulted in a lot of time spent enjoying wine in Napa, Sonoma, and especially the Dry Creek Valley. We particularly enjoyed the small family owned wineries. When we got the chance to return to North Carolina in 2008, again for Kari's work, we jumped at the chance. Ken had already decided it was time to give up the corporate world, and when we found out there was an opportunity to own a winery in North Carolina, we couldn't resist! After visiting, being impressed with the wines, and seeing the spectacular views of the Blue Ridge Mountains, we decided to take the challenge.

Ken Gulaian purchased this house in 2008

Why Ken Gulaian chose Mount Airy

When we purchased the winery, we saw the potential to create a really unique rental opportunity, where you can stay right in the heart of wine country, relax and enjoy some fantastic views, but still get out and participate in the many activities in the region. We spent a year upgrading the house, and the surrounding area, to make it an ideal place for a group to stay.

What makes this house unique

If your a wine lover, we are committed to making the best possible wines, and we hope you'll come and experience Round Peak Vineyards, visit some of the numerous North Carolina Wineries, and check out all that the area has to offer! If you're not a wine lover, hopefully we can convert you!

Lovely home on winery

  • 5 of 5

Rented this home for New Year's. Very comfortable house and beautiful views of vineyards and mountains. Was very cold but still enjoyed walking the grounds with our dog. Would love to go back at different time of year to enjoy the grounds and the back porch. Very well equipped and stocked house. Good quality linens, everything you could need in kitchen, including ziplocks, foil etc. and plenty of dishes etc. Provided shampoo etc in showers. Would highly recommend!!!!

Owner's Response: Thanks Daniela! Wish I would have been around to have a chance to meet you, but we were away for New Years. Very glad you enjoyed your visit, and I would agree, it is really nice in the summer as well when everything is green and the walks a bit less cold! Cheers, Ken

Great weekend with the family

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the vineyard cabin the weekend before Thanksgiving. Our daughter was running in the Mayberry Half-Marathon so the whole family was there to support her. The cabin comfortably accommodated us all, including our 12 pound Havanese dog. Everything was clean and tidy, and the kitchen was well-equipped with everything we needed to cook a big family meal. We enjoyed strolling over to the winery for a taste-testing, and our granddaughter loved romping around the grounds with our dog. Mount Airy (Mayberry) is only about 10 minutes away, and provided us with lots of small-town entertainment after the race. I would definitely recommend this property as a relaxing get-away for families, and it would make a great destination for a girlfriends' get-away as well.

Awesome find with so many to choose from. This cabin is everything they claim it is and then some.We had a very stress free Thanksgiving with our son his wife and 3 young kids. Total of 7people and 2 dogs. Plenty of room for everyone without being crowded. I would recommend this place to everyone. The back porch is awesome. Scenery is breathtaking. Everyone at the winery was super nice and Ken was very helpful whenever I emailed him. Thank you for sharing your Winehouse with us.

PS: The only thing that I think you need here are few pairing knives. Everything else was provided .

Round Peak Vineyards is located at the junction of I-77 & I-74 near Mt. Airy, a perfect stop on your travels North or South, or as a break on the way to the NC / SC beaches. We are in the Yadkin Valley, near more than 30 other wineries. Mount Airy is the home of Andy Griffith and famous for being the town used as a model for Mayberry. Take a ride on the Blue Ridge Parkway, only nine miles away, for some spectacular views. The area is the birthplace of the Round Peak style of Fiddling, with many events during the year.
