Wineries

FernCrest Winery

FernCrest Winery produces wines from our grapes and those of our vineyard partners. We have partnered with vineyards in North Georgia and North Carolina to purchase their grapes to make great wines. We want to share all our wines with you.

We give tasting of our wines for a fee that includes our logo glass. We sell glasses and bottles of wine. We also have local cheeses, pepper jams, and wine related artisan items for sale. Our facility is available for rent for private parties.

About Us:

Kurt and Jan Olson, the owners, started as home wine makers buying our first grapes to make wine in 2007. We developed our own ways for crafting wines.

In the Snowbird Mountains above the Western Carolina Regional Airport, we planted a small vineyard of Chardonel, Vidal Blanc, and Cynthiana grape vines in 2010. We began making wine from them in 2013. Both the 2013 Chardonel and 2013 Vidal Blanc won Gold medals at the Wine Maker’s Magazine’s International Amateur Competition in 2014.

The name FernCrest came from the fact that the house and winery are located on the crest of a hill and Kurt enjoys growing ferns from spores. Our logo is a family crest with a fern and fiddle head. The top of the crest is a representation of the Snowbird Mountains where the winery is located. All our wines are named after Ferns.

Award Winning Wines:

We are blessed that all the wines we have sent in for judging have received medals. Our Vidal Blanc won a Gold medal and our Chardonel and Cynthiana won Silver medals at the 2016 Asheville Wine and Food Festival. Our Vidal Blanc won Gold and our Chardonel won Silver at the NC State Fair 2016. Our newest Vidal Blanc and Cynthiana won Silver and Chardonel won Bronze at the NC State Fair 2018.
