Ole man winter hit hard across the Southeastern United States this weekend. Many of our favorite local wineries were blanketed in a picturesque covering of fluffy white snow. The snow pictures starting showing up Friday across our social media feeds.
Josh Jones snapped the below shot of Pinot the Pig at CityScape Winery in Pelzer (Greenville County), South Carolina all bundled up for the wintry weather.
Our favorite mountain escape, The historic Old Edwards Inn & Spa in Highlands, NC was looking majestic covered in soft fluffy blanket of pure white snow.
Our friend Christy Freeman King snapped the below shot of The Biltmore Estate in all it’s winter grandeur.
Yonah Mountain Vineyards in North Georgia Cleveland County posted the below winter wonderland scene which looked to be fitting for a Christmas card. Can barely make out the vines in the background.
Out friends at Baker Buffalo Creek Vineyards just outside of Shelby, North Carolina posted the below picture. Notice the falling snowflakes against the contrast of the red barn.
Shadow Springs Vineyard in the Swan Creek AVA up in Hamptonville, North Carolina posted the below glistening view of their snow covered vineyard.
We absolutely love the lake views from Old Homeplace Vineyards near Winston-Salem. The view was certainly beautiful on this winter weekend.
Saturday after a family gathering we took advantage of the cold and enjoyed some decaf coffee blended with a shot of Carolina Cream from Six and Twenty Distillery in Piedmont, South Carolina.
OverMountain Vineyards in Tryon, North Carolina shared this incredible shot. How beautiful are the vines with a thick blanket of snow and pure white clouds above. This is one of my favorite pictures. We were able to make the short drive up to OverMountain on Sunday and enjoyed a bottle of the 2016 Camelia white table wine.
We also got by Russian Chapel Hills Winery to visit with our friend Andrey. Snow was starting to melt, but Andrey had the wood stove burning and the tasting room was warm and cozy. The view of the chapel above the vineyards never disappoints.
The wintry view from the warmth inside at Russian Chapel Hills perfectly paired with our wine.
All considered we made the best of this cold wintry weekend. Yet we remain anxious for better weather so as we can get out and explore more wineries. I’d like to thank all the businesses mentioned for giving us permission to use their photos. We encourage you all to get out and eat, drink, and stay local. Happy weekend wining!
