Located at the foothills of the Uwharrie Mountain Range, Little River Vineyards has been in existence since 1999, growing grapes for wineries in North Carolina. The vineyard is approximately 10 acres and yields Vinifera and French hybrid grapes. A portion of the property was entered into the National Register of Historic Places on January 17, 2008. The property, which is now called Summer Duck Farm/Little River Vineyards, was originally referred to as the Powell-Brookshire Parker Farm.

Our wines have gained notable attention and we’ve won several wine competitions in North Carolina as well as nationally, with the most recent win in 2015. Crawdad Creek Big John’s Red won a Silver medal in the International Women’s Wine Competition, sponsored by Vineyards and Winery Management magazine.
