Wineries in the NC Mountains
The NC Mountain Golf Courses and Golf Course Communities NC at Jefferson Landing on the New River are nestled in a perfect part of the state. You'll find us in the northwestern corner of the state where the scenic Blue Ridge Mountains meet the Alleghany Mountains creating an ideal location for growing a variety of grapes. About a decade ago, viticulturists and wine enthusiasts began getting excited about the climate of the Yadkin Valley and North Carolina Mountains and they decided to start Wineries in NC Mountains. While most would think that the harsh winters and low temperatures that we experience seasonally would create a nearly impossible growing environment, it turns out that certain types of grapes thrive in our region. While we cannot grow certain types such as Muscadine grapes, we can produce vinifera and hybrid varieties and our NC Mountain Wineries have produced award winning varieties of wine including Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Cabernet Franc, Viognier, Merlot, Syrah, Chambourcin, Seyval and Blanc. If you've never tasted wines grown at the Wineries in NC Mountains, do not pass up the chance.
There are two known Wineries in NC Mountains in Ashe County NC near Jefferson Landing Luxury Resort NC. Thistle Meadow Winery, located in Laurel Springs first opened its doors in the county, and was later followed by New River Winery which is located in Lansing NC near Phoenix Mountain. Thistle Meadow Winery provides an hour long wine tasting event to the community and visitors are invited on a tour of the winery. Thistle Meadow has gained notoriety by regional and state awards for viticulture. They regularly produce, 'Horse Stomp Red', a signature red wine that tastes of White Zinfandel infused with a hint of raspberry.
New River Winery produces a Blueberry wine that has become a favorite of many. 'Back Porch Blueberry' is one of a kind and well worth a trip to Lansing or down to Bohemia Coffee Shop & art gallery in downtown West Jefferson, N.C. where you can also purchase sweet flavors produced by New River Winery.
In addition to the great Wineries in NC Mountains, there are numerous other NC Mountain Wineries spread about in our region. Venture thru Boone and make your way over to the vineyards that are located near Grandfather Mountain. Both Banner Elk Winery and Grandfather Vineyards are located a short driving distance from our Lots for Sale in Western NC and NC Mountain Vacation Rentals in our Golf Course Communities NC Jefferson Landing.
