About Kristen Ray

Winemaking has been a lifelong dream turned realty for entrepreneurs and wine enthusiasts JW and Kristen Ray.

The search for the perfect place for the winery brought them to the historic Yadkin Valley AVA. The rolling hills, now home to JOLO, are perched over 900 feet above sea level in the foothills of the Piedmont region boasting majestic views of Pilot Mountain. Previously, the vineyard estate had not been used for widespread agricultural purposes due to the rocky soil and hilly nature of the property. However, what is less ideal for farming makes for perfect conditions for world class grape growing. Most of the south facing sections in the vineyard require hand farming as the terrain is too steep for tractors. Thus our goal is to not compete on price but to provide inimitable guest services alongside superior wine production in North Carolina.

Kristen Ray purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Kristen Ray chose Pilot Mountain

No where will you find a winery with the pristine beauty of the JOLO estate. The vision for the 80-acre property is to showcase its natural beauty with focus on the breathtaking views of Pilot Mountain and Cox Lake located on the property. Pilot Mountain rises more than 2,400 feet above the rolling countryside of the upper Piedmont plateau. It boasts 3,703 acres of pristine State Park grounds which attracts over 400,000 visitors per year.

What makes this cottage unique

Along with wine tastings,guests to JOLO winery can enjoy a bocce court, gazebo, lake, trails, vegetable and herb garden, outdoor patios with fire pits and a world-class boutique restaurant. The winery’s proximity to Pilot Mountain’s bike and hiking trails and the beginning of the Wine Trail in Yadkin Valley make it the perfect place to “pilot’ the wine region.

Guests can enjoy a world-class glass or bottle of wine and gastronomic delights from End Posts Restaurant, in the tasting room by the wood burning fire, outside on the limestone pavers by the fire pit, on the deck surrounding the koi pond, or sitting beside our five-acre spring fed lake. All areas of the property provide tranquil views of the vineyard, botany and wildlife.

An AMAZING venue

  • 5 of 5

As if the Chateau isn't enough with it's amazing location and views, you are just seconds away from the most beautiful vineyard and winery on the east coast. JOLO is the place to go for a wonderful relaxing and fun weekend. The staff is wonderful. Where can you go where you are treated like royalty and touched by each member of the staff from the owners JW and Kristen to each member of the staff including Makayla, Hannah, Chris, Mark, Jerry Ann, Nancy, Carrie, and of course Kyle (you know who you are). If I missed anyone I apologize. This is the most well informed, warm, welcoming “Team” in the business. Oh, and the wines…well be sure to do a tasting so you can enjoy each one. I challenge you to find a favorite as all will soon be on your recommendation list. Thank you all for a wonderful experience.

Anniversary Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The pictures definitely do not do the JOLO Winery Newlywed Chateau and winery properties justice. It is so beautiful here. You need to see this place for yourself. We looked for several weeks for a place to stay for our anniversary weekend and we decided to come here at the last minute. We are definitely not disappointed.

Making reservations was a very easy and pleasant experience. Response from the owner was very prompt and they were able to answer any questions that I had very quickly.

The winery is very easy to find and the staff here are wonderful. Even though it has rained most of the weekend, we have still been able to have a relaxing getaway. We have really enjoyed just being at the property and enjoying the beautiful scenery and the beautifully decorated chateau. The views of Pilot Mountain are phenomenal and there is a lot to do in the area.

If you are looking for a relaxing or romantic weekend, you won't be disappointed.

We will definitely be back here in the future. It is a close quick trip for us. Our hometown is just a couple of hours away, making this a great drive and a pleasant trip.

The End Post restaurant had received 5 star ratings and we hope to try it before we have to leave.

If you arw getting married soon, this would also be a beautiful place for a wedding.

We highly recommend JOLO Winery.

Thanks to everyone who has made this weekend special.
