NC Wine Month 2016

 Each September, we will be focusing our attention toward North Carolina Wine (even more than we do now)! For 2016, we will be posting daily to our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram feeds.  We will be making a recap of everything we’ve tasted. Links will be posted here after they’re up.

In the meantime, check out  Instagram  to see how people have been celebrating #NCWineMonth!

Instagram post 17883907388326015 Today is the anniversary of the #judgementofparis1976. It was a time that many believed the only great wines were produced in France. Thankfully, Steven Spurrier decided to put that belief to the test and to the surprise, and dismay of the judges, Chateau Montelena and Stags Leap from California were given the top scores. Think about that misconception when you consider #ncwines. Great wines are produced in many different wine regions around the world, including NC. May is #ncwinemonth and a great time to begin visiting and supporting #ncwineries. We look forward to seeing you soon.

Check out our recap of NC Wine Month 2016.

Update: Originally this article referenced September as being the official month to celebrate North Carolina Wine. in 2020, the state officially changed it so that NC Wine Month is celebrated in May!
