Souther Williams is the latest addition to Hendersonville’s Crest of the Blue Ridge wine country. The vineyard features eight acres of grapes (with additional acres planned) and an open-air tasting room. On land that’s been in the same family since 1800, Souther Williams cultivates well-known varietals like Cabernet Franc, Cynthiana, Reisling and Vidal Blanc, along with lesser-known grapes from Austria, Germany and eastern Europe. These cooler climate varietals include Blaufrankisch, Gruner Veltliner, Regent and Saperavi.
