The Rock of Ages Winery & Vineyard is located in North Carolina’s southern Person County on the Moore family estate where tobacco was grown for generations. Communion wine was also produced on this land by Ernest Moore for area churches in the early 1900s. Now, his grandson, Kevin Moore and his wife, Kimberly, are carrying on that tradition as they are…”blending the old into the new.”
The first of the vineyard’s 26 acres were planted in 2003. Construction began on the winery facility in November, 2005 and the grand opening was in October, 2006.
