I started thinking that we haven’t shared much lately regarding our local winery escapades. So just where have we wined local lately?
We recently stopped by to visit with our friends at Wellborn Winery in Travelers Rest, South Carolina.
Tony and Debbie opened Wellborn Winery in the Woods back in 2018 and have been well received by the local community. The small estate vineyard is planted with French-American Hybrid varietals and they supplement with fruit from several local growers. The winery features ample outdoor seating.
Our visit came after a pit stop at one of our favorite award winning distilleries Six and Twenty in Piedmont, South Carolina.
We made an weekend winery escapades with our partners in wine up to Childress Vineyards in Lexington, North Carolina. Known as the gateway to the Yadkin Valley AVA. Childress is one the larger and most prominent wineries in North Carolina.
Childress Vineyards proprietor is NASCAR legend Richard Childress, and the well respected Mark Frizolowski serves as winemaker. The winery is expansive with a large gift shop and a celebrated bistro overlooking the back vineyard. Well worth a day trip or even a weekend getaway.
Along the opposite spectrum yet no less enjoyable was our visit to Sawyer Springs Vineyard in the Crest of the Blue Ridge Henderson County AVA. We met our friends Tom and Nancy at this rural mountain vineyard tasting room. The tasting room is a remodeled hundred plus year old barn.
It’s almost a holiday tradition stopping by Baker Buffalo Creek Vineyard in Fallston, North Carolina for a bottle or two of their holiday cranberry wine Merry Berry. Baker Buffalo is a hundred plus year old dairy farm repurposed as a charming vineyard and winery.
We were able to get down to my hometown of Greenwood, South Carolina for the grand opening of South Bend Winery.
We stopped by Overmountain Vineyard recently and enjoyed sitting on their enclosed patio while enjoying the Incredible views of the vineyard and nearby mountains. This 70 acre farm features distinctively produced French style craft wines. A must try is the bold 2019 Barbera!
This is the perfect time of year to sit by a fire table and listen to live music while enjoying award winning wine at Mountain Brook Vineyards. Truthfully though, any season is perfect for a visit to this gorgeous world class family owned winery.
Last but without doubt not the least, most Sunday’s you’ll find us at Parker-Binns Vineyard in the Tryon Foothills. Parker-Binns offers live music, great food, gorgeous views of the Blue Ridge mountains, and a laid-back non-pretentious atmosphere rarely found in an award winning winery.
