NC Wine Month 2016 Recap

Yet another wine month has come and gone. This month, we really stepped it up with our wine postings and winery visits. At the end of the month, we co-hosted a #winechat takeover. There were lots of new participants this year and we had a ton of great questions! One thing we noticed is the increased number of #NCWine and #NCWineMonth hashtags! This is great news for keeping our consistent brand strong and getting the word out there about #NCWine.

Read on for a photo roll of our NC Wine Month adventures.

Instagram post 17851709464124098 It's a new month! It's a new #NCWineMonth!  It's also #CabernetDay, so it's the perfect day for a new Cabernet Sauvignon from a new North Carolina winery!  Tonight we're enjoying the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon from Roaring River Vineyards!

This cab is light and fruity.  The nose is light cherries, plums and lightly crushed rose petals. The palate is rich with notes of black plums. It's fruity but rounds out with a nice earthy finish. A prime example of a North Carolina cab! 
If you haven't visited Roaring River Vineyards, go check them out!  There's great wine, great food, great beer, a beautiful setting and wonderful people!

Instagram post 17862329230034401 Day 22 of #NCWineMonth and we're having the 2013 War Woman Red from Nottely River Valley Vineyards, LLC! This blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Chambourcin makes for a fruit forward wine. The nose shows fresh red fruits and a touch of herbal spice. The flavors start off on a slight earthy note. Then comes cherries and vanilla on the mid-palate. The fruit carries through to the finish which fades out slowly. #UpperHiwasseeHighlands #NCWine #ncwgNCWineMonth16

Made from organic Carlos grapes, the nose of this wine is true muscadine!  The palate diverges a bit from the typically sweet muscadine. This wine is semi-sweet with a slight fuzzy fruitiness that quickly moves to a crisp, acidic finish. It's perfect with food that has a bit of spice! #YadkinValley #NCWine #ncwgNCWineMonth16
