Mountain Area Wineries and Breweries
 will again be featured during the event together with other miscelaneous vendors.

This year there are several new participants.

Give them a try.


There will be two entry gates, Herbert Street main gate & Sanderson Street/Church Street gate. At the gates, tickets can be purchased, Id's will be checked and wristbands provided to show eligibility to purchase alcohol. The Herbert Street gate will have the ability to process Credit Cards and a Will Call table to process the online purchases.

Hand stamps will be available should you need to exit and return to the event.

Attendees will be provided with a bag at both entrances containing Wine & Beer glasses, pens, note pads, possibly various coupons or information from businesses which will also be available in gift basket area.






AppalachainTrailIt starts and ends with pure Appalachian Mountain water. The water comes from deep in the ground and is super pure. So pure that we have to add a few things to make it suitable for brewing. It is also cold at about 58ºF.

When the brew day is over, all solids are filtered out from the wastewater with special inline screens and the grains are fed to local cattle. Yeast that is not reused will be neutralized before disposal. The remaining liquid is then collected in settling tanks to remove additional solids and then treated in an on-site bioreactor before leaving the building very close to the way it entered.


BalsamFallsBalsam Falls is the true definition of a labor of love.

BuckBaldBrewing240X240Since opening the original location in Copperhill, TN in 2018, they've quickly become the go-to brewery for locals and visitors from across the globe. With 14 taps of delicious brews in Copperhill and 12 taps of equally delicious brews in Murphy, you can bet you'll find a beer or two you'll love! Whether you enjoy IPA's, sours, English and German styles, or you're looking for something just a little out there, they've got you covered.


HayesvilleBrewingCompany240X240When creating their beers, they only use water, natural malted barley, fragrant hops and yeast. Sometimes, there is a special ingredient needed to flavor the beer which is added to the fermentation process when making the Possum Drop or natural fruit flavoring for the wheat beer. They don’t do anything to beef up alcohol or change the final product. What they brew is what you get. Local favorite.


NocturnalBrewingCompany240X240Nocturnal Brewing Co. offers a fresh take on casual classics with a stunning view of the North Carolina mountains. Just 4 miles from the NC/GA border, Nocturnal Brewing Co. opened on the square in historic downtown Hayesville, fall 2018.
Brewer David Grace uses many ingredients sourced and foraged nearby to craft exceptional beer. The kitchen team has a knack for creating tasty and beautiful dishes for a diverse menu. There’s something for everyone, lunch and dinner!


SnowbirdMountainsBreweryLogo240X240It was beer that brought Linda &Terry Vaughn together. Now they're bringing that passion for craft brewing to Andrews, NC. Terry started home brewing several years ago. He worked in the tap room with the original owners of Grumpy Old Men in Blue Ridge, GA. He enjoys experimenting with recipes, using exotic ingredients for that one-of-a-kind taste experience. Linda is looking forward to taking an active role in the brewery. She recently finished a brewing class at Brenau University and as a pharmacist, she plans to use her chemistry skills to help Terry create some out-of-this world beer!


EagleForkVineyards240X240Eagle Fork Vineyards is a small boutique winery located in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains. The unique method of growing the grapes to the sound of classical music allows us to boast of insecticide-free healthy wines. A wide variety of wines is available to meet the most disconcerting of tastes.


ferncrest240X240FernCrest creates hand crafted wines using the best grapes from their vineyard and their vineyard partners. The winery harnesses the power of the sun just like ferns do to grow. The winery is located on the crest of a hill in the Snowbird Mountains, Cherokee County NC. The vineyard is on steep slope below the winery.


Valley River Vinyards240X240The vineyard provides an array of wines to please every ones pallet. The scenery allows camping, wildlife watching, walking through the vines, wedding venues, birthday parties and enjoying a pleasant evening sitting by a camp fire.
From grape to bottle the wines are all hands on, specially made from the estate. The wines are made in small batches the old fashion way. No infusion, no chemicals added. Mattie Hatchett, the first wine made, is a dry red wine and is an all-time favorite.


wehrloomMeadery240X240While it's one of the world’s oldest fermented beverages, they're not serving anything dated. Their take on Mead is something new, something refreshing.

They've pushed the boundaries and created a group of beverages that blur the lines between beer and wine. With over six varieties now on tap at the Robbinsville and Asheville locations and even more to check out in the bottle, there’s certain to be something you'll love.

Best of all, the meads are made with their locally produced "Appalachian Mountain" honey and each is gluten-free!

The list of exhibitors varies from year to year as new breweries and wineries join old favorites to make this event a “must do”.

It has been recognized as part of the "wine trail" for the Upper Hiwassee Highlands AVA, (American Viticultural Area) an area of 100,000 acres of which only 130 acres are under vine – but that is continuing to grow as more “boutique” wineries get established.

Participating craft breweries are fast becoming a part of the WNC Brewers Alliance.

HHI is pleased to play a part in promoting economic growth of the area by providing this platform for new wineries and breweries to be successful.

The Hayesville Steins and Wine Around the Square event was the first of its kind in the area. It was born out of efforts by The Town 100 Committee that wanted to showcase a “Wine Around the Square” event in celebration of Hayesville's Centennial Anniversary in 2013. However, that required changes to local ordinances so that alcohol could be served. With approvals in place the event was a great success and has grown into the popular, now annual, “Steins and Wine Around The Square” of today.

 This event is a Historic Hayesville, Inc. fundraiser to benefit downtown projects.
