The home known as Vesuvius was built in 1792 by General Joseph Graham, making it the oldest standing home in Lincoln County. The Graham family was very prominent in North Carolina politics and industry throughout the 1800's, including state congressmen, senators, generals, a Secretary of the navy, and a vice Presidential Candidate. Joseph Graham was influential in bringing the iron industry into North Carolina and Lincoln County. The remnants of his Vesuvius Furnace still exist on the property.

Since the 1940's, the home and the property has been owned by the Lineberger family. In 2008, the family decided to return the house to its former glory, later opening it up to share with the public. Since that first wedding in 2009, Vesuvius has hosted numerous weddings, fundraisers, anniversaries, reunions, and many more events. Every event at Vesuvius Vineyards is special and unique. We can't wait to to share this one-of-a-kind event venue with you and your guests. Please call or email us if you have any questions about our wedding package or would like to set up a tour of the property. Thank you!

Perfect Wedding Venue!

I got married at Vesuvius Vineyards on August 28 and my wedding could not have been better! I can’t say enough positive things about the venue and owners! Jay and Kristy are WONDERFUL and work great as a team! They were very patient and responsive through the whole planning process and went over and beyond in their roles. Kristy was our day of coordinator and took care of every detail from start to finish! Our guests raved over the venue and the night was enjoyed by all! Definitely recommend Vesuvius Vineyards!

Best Venue

I remember attending the first wedding (Jay and Kristy’s) at Vesuvius vineyards and knowing then that one day I would get married there. The venue is gorgeous and doesn’t require a lot of decorations due to the natural beauty. Vesuvius was wonderful to work with during COVID (we made the decision to reschedule our wedding three times due to COVID). It rained on our wedding day, but everything exceeded our expectation. Kristy and Jay moved our ceremony from outside to inside the charming chapel during the pouring rain. Jay and Kristy went above and beyond to ensure our special day was perfect.

My husband and I had an amazing experience working with Jay and Kristy!! They are so organized, attentive, and helpful. They helped us easily navigate everything during the COVID craziness! The venue itself is beautiful and provided an amazing setting for our special day. I highly recommend this venue!!

Beautiful home & setting to start your Happily Ever After! The team at Vesuvius is not only organized but they're so kind and considerate to everyone. With a sloping lawn, creekside cocktail hour location and covered dinner/dancing spaces, it's definitely worth the super easy drive from Charlotte to check it out!

A WEDDING AND RECEPION VENUE THAT IS LIKE A BREATH OF FRESH AIR !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I had the opportunity to offer my services at a wedding and reception on Sunday July 24, 2011 at Vesuvius Vineyards located in Iron Station, NC. I have traveled all over NC, SC and Virginia DJ'ing weddings and and reception. Through my travels I have experienced all types of venues. When I come across a setting like I did Sunday, I am eager to share my experience. My first view of Vesuvius Vineyards was truly breathtaking. My mind flashed to a resemblance of the White House in our nations capitol. This venue is located approximately 30 miles north of Charlotte near Denver, NC in a gorgeous quiet country setting. The grounds were manicured immaculately reminding me of a golf course. A lovely creek rambled right through the property with sitting benches and swings along the bank. If you were looking for a rocking chair, no problem. They were located on the massive front and back porch as well as being placed in other locations around the grounds. Upon arrival I was greeted by the two owners John Lineberger and Jay Johnston.They were so accomodating to me and everyone that was supporting the wedding. The facility itself was awesome. A large covered area for the reception or any other type of gathering was great. The house interior was totally redone with great taste and so very comfortable. A large parking area was available with golf cart shuttle from the parking lot to the main house. John and Jay coodinated all of he vendors that were there for the couples special day. My bottom line statement is this. If anyone is looking for a venue for any type of event you seriously need to take a trip to Vesuvius Vineyards . As I first said, my DJ business has taken me many places. After Vesuvius Vineyards I have to admit...........I was blown away !!!Give Jay and John a call and see if you don't have the same experience I did. Keep up the great work guys !!
