Wineries & Vineyards
Yadkin Valley: Charm By The River – Piedmont Trail
Three Wineries, Distance Of 22.2 Miles – Tucked between Interstate 77 to the west and Winston-Salem to the northeast, this wine trail has much to offer beyond tastings and tours. If you visit on a Saturday in the warmer months, these three vineyards offer a ‘wine trolley’ to take you door to door between them. The Rag Apple Lassie Vineyard is a hot air balloon port for the Yadkin Valley Balloon Adventures, allowing guests to get a birds-eye view of the entire area. And the Flint Hill Vineyards offer a fine dining experience to go with your wine at the Century Kitchen.
