Winery Map of the Day – North Carolina's Best Wineries

From Muscadine to......

Similar to several other southern states, North Carolina is seeking a post-tobacco, grape-growing identity. North Carolina's geographical diversity allows for a wide range of grapes, including both hardy, French-American hybrids and Vitis vinifera, to be successfully grown. The challenge for North Carolina wineries seeking to establish themselves, and the region, as a source of top quality wine is to find the right variety for the right location and to produce both wines that sell locally and wines that impress internationally. Several of North Carolina's best wineries are impressing wine lovers and critics alike with North Carolina-produced Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Traminette. Raffaldini, located in North Carolina's Swan Creek AVA, is also producing award-winning wines from Italian grapes such as Montepulciano and Sangiovese.
