The Vineyard for The Winery at Sassafras Springs Vineyard

The Winery at Sassafras Springs Vineyard is one of Northwest Arkansas’ premiere wineries. Enjoy exceptional wines from all around the world inside our beautiful tasting room, under our covered patio next to the fireplace, or on one of our many over-sized decks.

In the spring of 2015, we will begin making our own wines out of our newly constructed wine production building.

The Winery at Sassafras Springs Vineyard.

The winery is a very unique setting.  The building that houses the wine tasting room began its life 50 years ago as milk barn.  The old milk barn has many features that are still prevalent and recognizable.  The tasting room has a large solid oak slab bar.  Family and  friends  gather here to taste the many wines from all over the world.  In addition to our international selection of wines we also offer local Arkansas wines and beers.  We offer tasting flights daily and we also offer special wine tasting events monthly where we feature specific vineyards from around the country.

The decks at the winery are situated under a canvas of large trees.  There are 3 large decks and a covered patio.  On Friday and Saturday nights we offer live music from local artists.  The local musicians are very talented and complement the atmosphere with soft jazz or pianist music.

You can make reservations for parties of 8 or more. We offer dinner on Friday and Saturday nights.  We have our “create your own cheese board” daily.  This is a wonderful way to experience the tastes of local artisans.  We have our meat, cheese, and bread delivered from local artisans. We also have many choices to enhance your cheese board such as nuts, olives, raisins, honey, and crackers.

You can stroll the 15 acres and visit our Chapel Ruins, our wine making facility, or our Event Center at the Stables.

The Wine Manufacturing Building and Office

This beautiful building sits between the winery and the Stables.   The lower floor houses our wine making facility. The creativity of our wine maker happens in this room and he is in one of his favorite places when he is working with his wine making skills here at Sassafras and it shows.

Stephen Dollar has been recognized as wine maker of the year in Arkansas.  He can be found in the tasting room or in the manufacturing room most days.

Stephen Dollar (viticulture  and enology certified) and Riley Mason ( horticulture degree) work with the vineyard located directly behind the manufacturing building.  Both ensure that all is well with the hybrid grapes that the University of Arkansas has created.
