There is no better way to relax this season than over a glass of wine shared with friends. Here in North Carolina, our wine-producing roots run deep, and we have more than 100 wineries across the state for you to enjoy.
In addition to fantastic wine, many wineries are offering special events and festivals this time of year. Check out Jazzy Fridays at Cypress Bend Vineyards, happening twice each month, or if you’re a sports fan, try Weathervane Winery’s annual Super Bowl Party in Lexington. Experience six wineries in one place at the Yadkin Winter Reds Event 2012 happening through February or indulge yourself at the Wilmington Wine & Chocolate Festival. For a more complete listing of upcoming wine events, visit our calendar.
With these events and regular tastings at the wineries, there is plenty to do this winter to stay warm and experience something new. Double check the wineries’ winter hours before heading out, and if you have a favorite wine or story to tell, please share it with us in the comments section below.
