We continue our travels around North Carolina and visited two more vineyards in Elkin NC along with a really interesting stop at an Amish general store. This was a very pretty day to tour, a little chilly and windy, but that didn’t stop Joan and me. Aside from the great wines in this area and along with the sites, we are really enjoying to people of this region – so friendly and accommodating – they have really made us feel at home.
Shiloh General Store
Nestled in the middle of this North Carolina wine region is Shiloh General Store. Joan and I didn’t know what to expect and were quite taken back as we walked through the doors. A substantial selection of Amish made goods including jams, jellies, fresh baked breads, pies, mixes, pickles and much, much more. We also enjoyed the deli sandwiches made with fresh baked breads and delicious meats and cheese. We had a fun stop for lunch along with adding a few delicious items to our pantry.
Windsor Run Cellars
Windsor Run Cellars was another fun vineyard and testing room visited. Located along the Swan Creek Wine Trail, Windsor Run offers a wide range of dry and sweeter wines, meads and brandies. For Joan and me, we decided we would step out of our traditional wine comfort zone and try some of the different vintages offer. We were not disappointed. Fun stop, very good wines, gracious host, all equal a great visit and tasting at this vineyard.
Shadow Springs Vineyard
Our last vineyard stop for the day placed us at Shadow Springs Vineyard, as sister vineyard to Windsor Run Cellars. The surrounding vineyards were beautiful, even on this end of the winter season, you could see the mountains in the distance and the rolling hills and vines made it really something to see.
The tasting room was very open, nice bar area, and plush seating around a fire place with great views of the surrounding vineyards. For my tastes, the wines at Shadow Spring Vineyards were a home run – fantastic Cab Franc, Chambourcin and the ’14 Meritage was amazing. We had a great visit, a great host and comfortable social environment with many of the others visiting Shadow Springs Vineyards and enjoying their excellent wines.
