North Carolina Wineries & Winery Tours

North Carolina is the home of the Scuppernong grape. It is now widely used in the southeast region of the country, but it was first discovered in North Carolina in the 1500s. The big white grape as it was called, is the first cultivated grape in the United States.

The long history of North Carolina wineries has produced almost ninety wineries in production currently. The tremendous growth of the muscadine grapes from the region and the desire for wines produced from North Carolina grapes is responsible for the growth of the wine making industry in the state.

The North Carolina Grape Council was created in 1986 and has been working to promote the grapes and wines of the state. Visitors to North Carolina will find a full schedule of wine tastings and festivals planned for the year that give visitors an opportunity to try the wines.

North Carolina is a beautiful state and the vineyards in the region along with the many wineries are a wonderful opportunity to spend time in the natural environment while exploring the southern vineyards. A tour through a winery gives wine lovers a chance to see how the wines that they love are made. Winemaking is an art and each winery has its own techniques and methods to create the unique wines of this area.
