Whippoorwill Vineyards

This year has been a wild one—and it’s only August! After all those months spent inside, many of us have been craving a safe trip into the outside world. Relaxation is on the menu—and so is delicious wine—at Whippoorwill Vineyards in Notasulga. Here’s just why you need to pencil in some me-time at this Alabama favorite.

What is Whippoorwill Vineyards?

Whippoorwill Vineyards is a hidden treasure. Ever since 2005, this family-owned spot has created tasty wines, made from their locally-grown, anti-oxidant-filled muscadine grapes. Now, 15 years later, their vintages are sold and served all over our state.

What can I do at Whippoorwill Vineyards?

Get ready to relax! You can walk by the beautiful vines on a tour as you enjoy a good glass of wine, or you can savor delicious flavors at a wine tasting. You’ll also be able to buy their pecans, which they grow on-site. Plus, they have a gift shop too, so you can pick out some fun fare to remember your trip.

Don’t forget—their harvest begins towards the end of next month. So, if you want to visit, that’s the perfect time of year.
