The Yadkin Valley is rich with wine history and represents some of the finest wineries in the country today. Piedmont Limo Service is proud to be able to conduct you or your group on a tour of these outstanding wineries. We can make all the arrangements for your special wine tour and tours can include lunch or dinner.
For decades, the Yadkin Valley was a key tobacco-growing region. However, as tobacco farming and cigarette manufacturing in the area declined, some growers, including tobacco farmers, have turned to wine-making. The native grapes of this region of the southeastern United Sates are the Muscadine and the Scuppernong. Early attempts to grow the European wine grape, Vitis vinifera, in the southeastern United States, including 18th century efforts by Thomas Jefferson at Monticello, Virginia, had mixed sucess. But in the past two to three decades, viticultural research has helped adapt these grapes to the climate, soil, and pests of the region.
Today, the 1.4 million-acre Yadkin Valley, just west of Winston-Salem, NC, is home to exquisite vinyards and wineries and was approved as North Carolina’s first American Viticultural Area (AVA). The Yadkin Valley designation appears on bottles when wine is made from 85 percent of grapes grown in this region.
