So you’re in Hamptonville, North Carolina and your looking for something to do. There’s the flea markets up on Rocky Branch Rd. I’ve been to the Vintage Village Flea Market more than a few times, nice place but let me warn you it does get fairly busy on Sundays.

If the flea markets don’t interest you, or maybe your looking for something to do after visiting the flea markets, why not try out the little gem of a winery named, Dobbins Creek Vineyards located on Vineyard View Lane??? If you like wine but have never visited here, I think you will be impressed.

Wine

If you are looking for a muscadine wine, I do not believe you will find even one here. That’s actually pretty odd for a winery in North Carolina not to have even one muscadine.

What wines will you find at Dobbins?

About 8 different wines. Reds and Whites, some sweet some dried and also barreled aged. A very fine group of wines to choose from here and reasonable prices, if you buy a bottle you will receive 10% compared to just drink glasses.

Wine list at Dobbins Creek Vineyards

  • Riesling
  • Chardonnay

Top Raleigh Taxi Services

You need a taxi that will pick you up on time and also one that will navigate the shortest distance to your destination. Below I have comprised a list of the top three taxi services in Raleigh NC. The taxi rate charged per mile, doesn’t vary much from company to company maybe only a couple cents on the mile.

Differences in Raleigh Taxi Services

Since the rate you will be paying doesn’t vary much, then the quality of service provided is the number #1 factor in choosing which service to use.Taxi Raleigh

  • Pick you up on time
  • Deliver you to your desired destination through the shortest distance and quickly.

 

The three best taxi service in Raleigh

All-Points Personal Transportation - This is the number #1 taxi cab option in the Raleigh area. The drivers are very professional and the customer service on the phone is excellent. If you need to be picked up on time and delivered to your destination the quickest, then you need to call All-Points Transportation: 520 N West St Raleigh, NC 27603‎ (919) 836-9900.

Green Taxi - A dependable service and also has a credit card machine in the cab in case you do not have cash on hand.909 Capital Blvd Raleigh, NC 27603‎ Phone:(919) 835-3545.

I do have a lot of experience in using these service in the city.

Where do I get my experience from and why do I consider myself an expert on this subject? Dozens and dozens of times while visiting bars and wineries, where I have had a little too much to drink and have not felt like taking the risk of driving I have had to call upon these service to get home safely.

Through these experiences I have used just about every service in the city. That’s why you should trust my list of the best taxi service.

Also, if you happen to be at a bar or winery and have concluded you need to call a taxi to get home ask the bartender because some bars will actually pay your fare.

RagApple Lassie Vineyard

What an interesting name for a winery!!! And the atmosphere and wines found RagApple Lassie Vineyard definitely do not disappoint either.

Ragapple Lassie winery nc

Ragapple Lassie winery ncLocated at: 3724 RagApple Lassie Lane, Boonville, NC 27011.  In case you plan on visiting, find a map at the end of the page for driving directions based on your location.

I do want to mention, there are mixed online reviews about this North Carolina winery. Many visitors love the RagApple experience, while others complain a bit.

See other Yadkin Valley Wineries

RagApple Lassie Vineyard is a finalist for the best new winery in the United States.

So What’s up with this?

I think most everyone who visits, agrees they have a selection of great tasting wines. I think the negative reviews come from people who don’t appreciate the unique environment here.

As you enter the winery you walk suspended above a fermentation tanks, then out on to the processing floor to the wine tasting room. Visitors are definitely given a different perspective compared to many of the other wineries in North Carolina. Many people love this but as always there will be a handful that don’t.

Wine

The wines at this Yadkin Valley Winery

You will find a nice selection of Reds and Whites, Semi-sweet and a special reserve wine named Evening Sunset.

The prices – Except for their reserve wine, “Evening Sunset”, every other sells for $17 per bottle. The reserve wine sells for $35.

The 2003 Chardonnay found here is every special wine, this is a grand champion buttery wine and a steal at $17 a bottle.

They also have a wine club you can join to take advantage of deeper discounts.

Calaboose Cellars

Calaboose Cellars a charming winery located in Andrews, North Carolina. This winery sits in a little valley that’s surrounded by the herculean Smoky Mountains. Visiting here and taking in the rough but picturesque terrain you should quickly understand why this setting is the perfect place to have a county jail.

Did I forget to mention that a hundred or more years ago the building Calaboose Cellars resides in was once a county jail? There’s still bars on the windows but the inside is perfectly decorated for a mountain winery.

The Drive is Beautiful and well worth the trip!!!

Wine

What about the Wines found at these Smoky Mountain Cellars?

The winery has an impressive selection of wines. They categorize their wines: Dry, Sweeter, Country and Dessert.

What’s the prices like? Per bottle varies from $15 -18. They have a very nice little tasting room here I’m not up-to-date on the price of wine tasting here, if I had to guess probably $5-6 bucks to sample each of their 8 wines.

My first experience here was attending a live music event, I didn’t even come for the wine. But after talking to the many people that night and sampling the wines I found many high quality wines. And also found learn many people come from long distances just to get these wines.

Especially the one named Revinoors’ Red, which has been awarded many gold medals!

Revinoor’s Red – This is a extremely nice red wine that goes great with both chocolates and cheeses.

Events

Calaboose Cellars is one of the prime place for winery events in the state of North Carolina. If interested in learning more about the monthly events the best place to go is their websites events page.
