Divine Llama Vineyard

North Carolina wineries: Divine Llama Vineyard

Divine Llama Vineyard

This vineyard sounds like it’s straight out of a fantasy movie. It’s combined with a llama farm, and these llamas can carry chairs, water, and other treats with them to a small creek during a hike. You’ll be able to take pictures and feed the llamas once you arrive here. Seriously, how can it get any better than this?

Check out the tasting area (separate from the llama farm) and food trucks for your food and wine fixes. There are options for white, red, and hybrid wines. You can even bring your dog here!

Adagio Vineyards

North Carolina wineries: Adagio Vineyards

Adagio Vineyards

This stunning location spans 45 acres and features a cute house/tasting room run by a husband and wife team. You can also try their yummy cheese, crackers, and chocolates, along with the wines. There are picnic tables and firepits available, so you can bring your own food to munch on as you sip wine.

My absolute favorite wine here is Coda. It’s a sweet wine made with Traminette (a white grape hybrid), Asian pear, apple, and spiced honey.

They’ll even take you through the wine-making process here.

Old Homeplace

North Carolina wineries: Old Homeplace Vineyard

Old Homeplace Vineyard

Talk about cute! This place has one of the best outdoor seating areas, including a tire swing. It’s right near a lake where they often have live music. There’s even a super cute barn that you can rent out for events.

Stay with the theme of this vineyard by trying its Rosé named Tire Swing. It’s a drier but delicious wine. They also have delicious cabernet sauvignon and sauvignon blanc options.

Don’t forget to ring the bell on the way out!

North Carolina Wineries: JOLO

JOLO Winery & Vineyards

This is a place that has it all! There’s a restaurant, tasting room, pavilion, and patio seating available here. Oh yeah, and eight wineries to check out. Enjoy gorgeous views of Pilot Mountain and Cox Lake while you explore and taste their estate-grown wines.

Their Pilot Fog which is aged in an American Oak barrel is a must-try. They also boast excellent white wine and rosé offerings.

St. Paul Vineyard

St. Paul Mountain Farms

This farm is both a vineyard and orchard serving French-style wines. You can find different tasty drinks here besides wine, like hard ciders made from their farm-grown fruit. This is the ideal spot for you if you enjoy trying other spirits beyond wine.

There are also super fun test-tube flights that you can drink while visiting the farm. Hang out and enjoy the live music, stop by for yoga, or head to their Flat Rock Tasting Room for Sunday Brunch with mimosas.

Most importantly, try the cabernet franc – it’s one of the best wines here.

Elkin Creek Vineyard

Head to this spot in Yadkin Valley for gorgeous views and wine. This vineyard, featured in Southern Living Magazine, is noted as the best in the area. Grab yourself a bottle of Vino Limone – a yummy dessert wine like limoncello. There’s a quaint little creek you can walk to behind their tasting room!

Check back in on Sundays for fresh-made pizza with toppings of your choice. You can even spend a night or a few nights here by renting a cabin right on the vineyard.

Enjoy your wine flight with locally sourced cheese and crackers. You’ll have beautiful North Carolina mountains to view while sipping on your wine.

If you stop by in summer, try the Frosé (frozen rosé slushie). It’s to die for!
