NC Wine Month 2016

September is North Carolina Wine and Grape Month! 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!

In fact, the microclimates allows NC to grow the largest variety of grapes 🍇 in the world.

Instagram post 17851201993581437 Celebrating #ncwine month in style! 🍷 
September is NC Wine month and I’ve only recently become a big fan. I first visited the Yadkin Valley almost 17 years ago when I was pregnant! Not a great time to go wine tasting...but back in March of this year I took another trip out and made a beeline for jolovineyards.

Rated 1 of the top 7 wineries outside California, Jolo is the recipient of numerous awards.  In my opinion, their wine is just plain good! 💯

With friendly staff, delicious food (lunch only this time of year) it’s worth spending an afternoon. Set amid rolling hills and mountains, the beautiful views invite you to grab an Adirondack chair and a glass of your favorite (mine are Jolotage and Golden Hallows) and relax while you listen to live music on a Sunday afternoon. 🍷😎
