Yadkin Valley Wineries

For decades, the Yadkin Valley was a key tobacco-growing region. However, as tobacco farming and cigarette manufacturing in the area declined, some growers, including tobacco farmers, have turned to wine-making. The native grapes of the Yadkin Valley in western North Carolina are the Muscadine and the Scuppernong. Early attempts to grow the European wine grape, Vitis vinifera, in the southeastern United States, including 18th century efforts by Thomas Jefferson at Monticello, Virginia, had mixed success. But in the past two to three decades, viticultural research has helped adapt these grapes to the climate, soil, and pests of the wine region.

Today, the 1.4 million‐acre Yadkin Valley, just west of Winston‐Salem, is home to exquisite vineyards and wineries and was approved as North Carolina's first American Viticultural Area (AVA). The Yadkin Valley designation appears on bottles when wine is made from 85 percent grapes grown in this region. The majority of wineries offer tours and tastings.

Our grapes receive the attention and care necessary to insure that the winemaker has the very best the Yadkin Valley has to offer. We offer a wide range of tasting alternatives. Our Grassy Creek wines are the more full-bodied, rich and robust. Our Klondike Farm wines are the sweeter, lighter and fruitier wines and come in the distinctive milk bottles that hearken back to the old Klondike Dairy that once occupied the land.

Grassy Creek Vineyard & Winery - State Road, NC

Before the first grape vine was planted, the owners and staff of JOLO Winery & Vineyards sought to set a new standard in wine making and hospitality in the region. Winemaking has been a lifelong dream turned reality for entrepreneurs and wine enthusiasts JW and Kristen Ray. The rolling hills, home to JOLO, are perched over 900 feet above sea level in the foothills of the Piedmont region boasting majestic views of Pilot Mountain. Previously, the vineyard estate had not been used for widespread agricultural purposes due to the rocky soil and hilly nature of the property. However, what is less ideal for farming makes for perfect conditions for world class grape growing. Most of the south facing sections in the vineyard require hand farming as the terrain is too steep for tractors. Thus our goal is to not compete on price but to provide inimitable guest services alongside superior wine production in North Carolina.
