Boutique French Style Vineyard

Junius Lindsay Vineyard (JLV) boasts North Carolina’s only open air tasting room, offering breathtaking views of the vineyard & surrounding countryside. It’s the perfect place for sampling our nationally acclaimed wines or enjoying a bottle with friends. In the colder months, our tasting room is enclosed by vinyl curtains and heated for comfort. Guests are invited to bring a picnic and enjoy the wine and beauty of the vineyard.

We offer several exciting events throughout the year, including our monthly Music in the Vineyard series which runs from February through November. View our current list of vineyard events below.

A Little Rhône in the Triad

Our boutique vineyard, established in 2004, serves 100% estate-grown, nationally-acclaimed French style wines. All of our grape varietals are native to the Rhône Valley of Southern France. Our overriding goal is to produce wine that reflects the unique characteristics of the vineyard’s terroir which ensures wines that are truly representative of the old world fashion. We take immense pride in the grapes that we grow and firmly believe that truly great wines are produced from estate-grown grapes.


Junius Lindsay Vineyard, located in northern Davidson County in the city of Lexington, is a proud member of the Yadkin Valley AVA (American Viticulture Area) -- North Carolina's first AVA.

Over 100 Years of History

Junius Lindsay Vineyard is named for owner & grower Michael Zimmerman’s grandfather, Junius Lindsay Zimmerman (left), who started the Zimmerman farm in 1896. He farmed the land until age 90, when it was passed down through each successive generation.


After a career in the Foreign Service, Micheal Zimmerman returned to the family homestead with a dream of transforming the century old Zimmerman farm into a vineyard that would produce fine, old world French style wines. Now a third generation farmer, Zimmerman welcomes guests to his vineyard to share his passion for fine wine, commitment to quality, and love of the local land.
