American Viticultural Area (AVA),

DISCOVER THE REGION

The wine industry in North Carolina has
colonial roots, beginning with Sir Walter
Raleigh's 16th-century arrival to the
state's shores. Once here, he discovered
the scuppernong vine, and by 1840

North Carolina was the top wine-producing state in the Union. Prohibition
slowed production and then tobacco
farming took hold. About 50 years ago,
tobacco demand declined and Yadkin
Valley farmers revisited winemaking.
The area's red-clay soil and mild climate are
conducive to French and Italian varietals,
which dominate the styles found here.
Today, the Yadkin Valley is hailed
as one of the top 12 wine-producing
regions in the country; USA Today ranked
it No. 5 on its list of "Ten Great Places
for Local Wineries." Chardonnay, riesling,
cabernet sauvignon, and merlot reign
supreme, but there are plenty of other
varieties and specialties to be found.
Look for the Yadkin Valley designation,

which appears on bottles when at least 85
percent of the grapes used to make a wine
were grown in the region.
Year-round, there are tastings, tours,
and seasonal happenings at vineyards
across the valley. The North Carolina
Wine Festival is traditionally held the
Saturday prior to Memorial Day in
Tanglewood Park (May 27, 2017). In
town, Winston-Salem celebrates Salute!
The North Carolina Wine Celebration
(Saturday, June 3, 2017). No matter where
or how it's sipped and savored, the distinction of Yadkin Valley wines is rivaled
only by the experiences people have
exploring and enjoying them.
