Old Rock Quarry Winery

Award-winning wines are appreciated in a lively tasting room or outdoor seating area in a peaceful rural setting! Old Rock Quarry Winery (ORQ) on its 3 acres near Enoree offers a laid-back informal spot to enjoy their hand-crafted wines and ciders. Kick back and sip away.

Not sure what you’ll like? Order a tasting or a flight. With a tasting, you can choose either 7 or 10 wines to sample ($7/$10). Comes with cool souvenir glass. Side note: not available during events (see below). Or select a flight ($12) where you pick 4 different wines to test (2 oz ea).
