What you'll do
This ain’t your Mama’s Muscadine! North Carolina vineyards are maturing, producing award-winning wine, ranging from Chardonnay, Malbec & Sangiovese to Vermentino, Cabernet Sauvignon & Petit Verdot. Join the NC Wine Gals for weekly food and wine tours of the Yadkin Valley. We leave from Charlotte, and highlight the best NC wine paired with local food. Don’t worry if you don’t know anything about wine, we’re here to guide you! Each tour consists of 4 vineyards and 5 food pairings ranging from BBQ & Chambourcin (bold red) to cheese & a white Montepulciano (!!). We grab a bottle of wine at each vineyard and enjoy a small meal that compliments the wine. Normally, we reserve one of the 4 vineyards for a full tasting. Occasionally Harry the wine Daschund (he is 5 months) comes on our wine tours. He is cute & always a gentleman.
Hi ya'll I am Megan. One half of the NC Wine Gals. I have lived in the Carolina's for over 10 years and absolutely love our wine. It has come a long way since from the days of super sweet Muscadine. My day job is doing food & wine tours of Portugal & Croatia, so to have top quality wine in my own state makes me extremely happy. I am not a wine snob and if you don't know anything about wine, that's ok, I am here to guide you and help you find the wines you like to drink. Not all wine in NC is sweet and I have scoured wine country for the best vineyards making truly exceptional wine. Other experiences simply drive you to a vineyard & let you do a tasting, I hand pick the best wines at each and pair it with the best local food.
5 Total Food Pairings Including Breakfast Pairing.
Hand Picked Wine at 3 Vineyards, about 5 Glasses of Wine & 1 Vineyard Tasting.
Where you'll be
