Longleaf Vineyard is a Western North Carolina vineyard, discovered on a search for land with a mountain view just outside of Asheville North Carolina.  Asheville had been home to us for several years.  As much as we love the city and all it has to offer, the mountains were calling. Our search soon ended when we found a beautiful mountain top vineyard just 25 minutes outside of the city.  We immediately fell in love and were determined to make it our new home and business venture.


Our combined experience and love of wine have become the ideal combination for our boutique vineyard and event venue, newly named Longleaf Vineyard.  Our home in Pa was surrounded by award winning vineyards that we enjoyed immensely.  Brian had frequent discussions with neighbors, intrigued by the process and wanting to own and operate his own vineyard some day. Wendy has been in the event and wedding planning business for more than 20 years.

Our venue can accommodate any special occasion from a small social gathering to a wedding of 150 guests. We are now booking 2018 and 2019 events.  Wine tastings are currently available to groups of 10 or more with advance reservations.


We are very excited for this new adventure, and look forward to sharing our mountain vineyard with you and your family/friends.



Wendy and Brian Knowles

We were married at Long Leaf Vineyard and it was a fantastic experience from planning to ceremony. Wendy and Brian worked with to make sure it as exactly as we wanted and gave us the perfect wedding experience. The vineyard is gorgeous and the mountain views made for the perfect backdrop. We can't wait to come back to visit for years to come. Thanks for everything!! Karla and Chris

I cant say enough about Longleaf Vineyard! My now husband and myself visited the venue last year and were amazed with the views! The new owner Wendy Knowles was so responsive and helpful from day one! If you book this venue, you will not be disappointed!

We chose this venue for its beautiful views of the mountains, and it was a delight to be able to look over my soon-to-be husband's shoulder during the ceremony and see the beautiful Appalachian mountains in the background. The venue was so easy to love. We had a great experience with Longleaf and will highly recommend it to anyone looking for a beautiful venue!

The venue is beyond gorgeous- you just can't beat the amazing mountain view! All of our guests were raving about what a beautiful venue it was, and our pictures look incredible! Thank you Wendy and Brian for hosting our perfect day!
