Sip with an open mind.  Allow your palate to experience the distinct pleasure of North Carolina wines.  With terroir from the mountains to the coast and fruit varying from sweet muscadine to European bordeaux and Rhone vinifera grapes, be prepared for “Bottle Shock” North Carolina Style! Cheers!

      There are so many I still haven’t visited! Junius Lindsay, Raylen Vineyards and Grove winery are all great. I actually have never toured Biltmore Estate – but it is on my list of things to do. If you are looking for a day trip up toward the mountains, I would suggest South Creek. In the Yadkin Valley, you simply have to taste at Laurel Gray and Ragapple Lassie. But rememer, we had 107 wineries the last time I looked (and more on the way). It would take some real effort to visit all of them.

      Hope you’re keeping up with the NC Holiday Wine Project – you should get lots of great recommendations for “must visit” wineries!
