The First Winery in York County
John Burks is the owner of Cat’s Paw Winery, in Rock Hill, SC. After making wine for several years, his Book of the Month Club members finally convinced him to open to the public.
The winery's name is inspired by Joey, John's first orange tabby. When John needed a mascot for the winery, the choice was obvious!
Joey went over the Rainbow Bridge in 2018. While no cat can ever replace Joey, John opened his heart and home to a rescue cat named Percy in 2019. Percy stepped into Joey's paws and is now a large part of the winery. He loves to greet and cuddle customers. In 2020, Simon joined the Cat's Paw family and is a wonderful addition. In 2021, Morris joined the Cat's Paw family and has became a big hit with all the customers!
At Cat's Paw Winery, we take pride in creating wines that are smooth and delicious, palatable, and easy to drink. Made with all natural well water and real fruit juices, you'll notice the difference immediately between our wines and store bought brands. Mass produced wines can contain over 20 chemicals, preservatives, added sugars. Cat's Paw wines contain only two additives, no additional tannins, and no sulfites. You can enjoy any of our varieties without the worry of wine headache in the morning.
Cat's Paw offers several varieties of whites and reds all made in the true small batch craftsman style. The winery has a tasting room that includes areas to visit with your friends and retail areas for purchases. Come and experience the true flavors of Cat's Paw small batch wine.
We welcome all to come visit us and experience the winery.
Open Thursday, Friday, & Saturday. Noon to 8:00 pm, rain or shine!
Please note: No one under 21 is allowed, no exceptions. Please be mindful.
