dry reds, and plenty of sweet wines) and also stocks a broad selection of North
Carolina produced beers ranging from light to amber to dark. Something for everyone.

Soup & Sing is held once a month on a Saturday night. This is a combination pot-luck
dinner, jam session, and folk gathering for local musicians/singers that harkens
back to a time when there were no radios or TVs and music was what we made together,
face to face, an essential part of our soul as necessary as the food that nourished
our bodies. If you are not a musician but are a friend or family member of a musician
or are a Friend of Stonefield Cellars that loves wine and music, you are welcome
to come. We appreciate your support of local music and local wine! (Wine sales
provide the financial support to make this event possible.)
Large Parties/Groups Policy: Due to our policy to preserve the intimacy of the
gathering and the need to stay within our capacity limit, Soup & Sing is not an
event for large private parties or groups (more than 8 people in a single party/group).
We do however rent our barrel room for private parties and we can provide you
with contact info re: bands for hire. We also hold barrel room concerts and outdoor
music events at the winery during which we can provide concert/festival seating
for large groups.
