Celebrate NC Wine in the 919
The Governor of North Carolina has declared that in September we celebrate NC wine. There are more than a dozen vineyards and wineries in North Carolina, and I thought it would be helpful to spotlight wineries around the Triangle, 919 area. You don’t have to travel far to getaway from the stresses of life and sip delicious NC wine.
Gregory Vineyards located about 30 minutes east of Raleigh is your weekend country escape. The vineyards offers wine tastings, dining at their on-site Lane’s Seafood & Steak restaurant, tours and wedding packages. Lane and Teresa Gregory welcome guests to their vineyard from Wednesdays to Saturdays each week. Read more about my family’s visit to Gregory Vineyards.
Nestled near downtown Cary, Chatham Hill boasts a nice selection of wine made with Yadkin Valley, NC grapes as well as their Sweet Carolina fruit infused wines. Chatham Hill is open Tuesday through Sunday and offers wine tastings, tours and private events.
Down the road from the Streets at Southpoint in Durham, Doyle’s Vineyard provides a picturesque country setting. Doyle’s is the Triangle tasting location for RagApple Lassie Vineyards in Yadkin Valley, NC. Doyle’s is open Thursday through Monday for wine tastings. They also offer a variety of activities– yoga, painting, and movie nights. You can view their activity on their Facebook page. Read more about my fellow blogger Kathy’s visit to Doyle’s Vineyard.
Since 2010, the Cloer family has been growing and producing wine on their 18-acre farm in Apex. Cloer Family Vineyards offer wines derived from the native North Carolina muscadine grape (grown on-site) and an European-born grape that are grown in Western NC. Cloer Family Vineyards are open on Friday and Saturdays for wine tastings, tours and private events. They also offer Tunes & Toasts, Ladies’ Night Out events and the NC Wine Trail. You can read more about their events on their website. Read more about Kathy’s visit to Cloer Family Vineyards.
History grows deep at Adams Vineyard in Willow Springs. Since the mid-1700’s the vineyard was a working farm that grew tobacco and cotton. Times have changed and the farm has been converted to a vineyard that produces the native NC muscadine grape and other fruits. Adams Vineyard welcomes visitors Tuesday through Sunday with wine tastings, a gift shop, and outside seating. The vineyard also offers a banquet and events room.
