Yadkin Valley Wine Trails & Tours
Nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains and encompassing 1.4 million acres, you’ll discover plenty of stunning scenery and intimate tasting rooms in the Yadkin Valley. You’ll need to plan more than one trip to take it all in, but a good place to start is on one the Valley’s Wine Trails.
- Swan Creek Wine Trail – Located in the Piedmont region of northwestern North Carolina, you’ll find six family-owned vineyards within just five miles. Just follow the purple and green grape cluster signs designating wineries on the Swan Creek Trail. Most of the wineries are open Wednesday through Sunday, however hours do vary depending on the season, so be sure to call ahead.
- Yadkin River Wine Trail – Wine has been produced along the Yadkin River (one of the longest rivers in NC) since these early days of European colonization. Plan a day trip to explore these five wineries to enjoy tours, tasting rooms, gift shops and more. Enjoy unique sights along the way, such as llamas and miniature horses, an historic farm, an organic vegetable farm, and an art studio.
- Shallow Ford Wine Trail – Enjoy four unique vineyards nestled in this historic part of the Yadkin Valley. Located minutes apart from one another, most of these wineries are open Friday through Sunday depending on the season. Please call ahead.
- Southern Gateway Wine Trail – Featuring world-class wines and beautiful scenery within a 15-miles drive. These wineries are located in Lexington’s Barbecue Country so you may want to stop for some famous Lexington-style barbecue.
