North Carolina wines?

Leave a comment

Ok, this surprised me.  We have a vineyard  in our back yard in Travelers Rest.  It’s not clear to me if they have a winery also but we will find out.

And then I found out about all the wineries in NC!  Looks like many of them are about 3 hours away north and east of us. to see a map.

North Carolinas finest wines!

With more than 70 wineries and 400 vineyards in 34 counties, the number of North Carolina wineries has more than tripled since 2001. North Carolina currently ranks 10th nationally in grape and wine production and was cited in 2007 as one of the top five state destinations for wine and culinary tourism activities in the U.S.

Growers in the Mountains and Piedmont regions have planted traditional European grape varieties and French-American Hybrids. Commonly planted varieties include Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Syrah, Chambourcin, Chardonnay, Viognier, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Seyval Blanc and Vidal Blanc. Plantings of native Muscadine grapes, often called Scuppernongs, are also on the rise.
