The Original Carolina Food & Wine Tour

The Original Carolina Food & Wine Tour

This ain’t your Mama’s Muscadine! North Carolina vineyards are maturing, producing award-winning wine, ranging from Chardonnay, Malbec & Sangiovese to Vermentino, Cabernet Sauvignon & Petit Verdot.

Join the NC Wine Gals for weekly food and wine tours of the Yadkin Valley. We leave from Charlotte, and highlight the best NC wine paired with local food. Don’t worry if you don’t know anything about wine, we’re here to guide you!

Each tour includes 4 vineyards from a rotating list with about 5 glasses of wine, food pairings, 1 full vineyard tasting, all day transportation & a friendly, knowledgeable guide.

Sometimes Harry, the wine dachshund comes on our tours. We only bring him if everyone is ok. He is very polite, doesn't bark and is hypoallergenic. He LOVES the vineyards.

This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Raffaldini Vineyards & Winery, 450 Groce Rd, Ronda, NC 28670-9134

This is perhaps one of the Carolina's prettiest vineyards, Raffaldini. Raffaldini makes excellent Italian wines and have been doing so for a couple decades. We will enjoy their Bella Misto (red) that goes divinely with an Italian specialty in a red wine sauce (plus bread to sop up the goodness).

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Piccione Vineyards, 2364 Cedar Forest Rd, Ronda, NC 28670-9107

Known for their Italian style wines, this cute on a hill vineyard has one bottle that particularity stands out for us, their amazing dry rosé made from Montepulciano grapes. We are pairing this with some fantastic cheese & crackers.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Hanover Park Vineyard, 1927 Courtney Huntsville Rd, Yadkinville, NC 27055-6144

Housed in a 19th century farmhouse, this unpretentious vineyard is making a slate of fantastic wines. We are taking their 2017 Chambourcin (red) and matching it with Carolina pulled pork.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: RayLen Vineyards, 3577 US Highway 158, Mocksville, NC 27028-7842

This delightful and large Carolina vineyard makes too many good wines to count. We want you to try them all. We are doing a full tasting with a bite of homemade chocolate.

Duration: 1 hour
