Stonehaus Winery's more than 18 varieties of wine include sweet white and red muscadines ($10.95–$14.95), a Moonlight cabernet ($19.95), and a very dry pinot gris with citrus overtones ($19.95) that complement chicken, seafood, pork, and more. Stonehaus's popular Tickled Pink sparkling wine, a fruity, semi-sweet labrusca, won Best of Show at the 2009 Wines of the South competition. Stonehaus Winery also showcases homemade fudge, gourmet foods, and educational toys for children and hosts community events, such as concerts, outdoor movie screenings, and frozen-wine-sculpting tournaments.
