The late summer and early fall is harvest time in North Carolina's vineyards. It's a hectic time during which winery owners keep a constant eye on the weather, and workers stay busy picking grapes at just the right time to ensure that 2009 is another vintage year.
This week's theme during the ten-week Fabulous Fun Fall Getaways promotion on Visit NC is "Prime Time For Wine", with an inside look at the wine harvest, several self-guided wine trails to download, and an article about guided Yadkin Valley Wine Tours. In this week's giveaway, you can actually win one of those tours, as well as an overnight stay at the Manor House B&B in Clemmons, golf at Tanglewood Park, and a tasting, tour, and lunch at Childress Vineyards. Cheers!
