Cloer Family Vineyards and wine options

What you will not find at this NC Vineyard is a huge selection of different wines. But what you will get is a small selection of very good wines. Their selection includes two wines produced from North Carolina grown muscadine grapes and two wines produce with European grapes.

The muscadine grapes are grown onsite at the vineyards. The European grape varieties are purchased from a vineyard in located in western part of North Carolina. Not sure but this could mean the Yadkin Valley.

Wine tasting and tours

The wine tasting at the vineyards is both delicious and educational. The cost is $5 for a generous tasting of each of their five wines. I know under my wine section I said they have only fours wines but I have been informed they actually produce five different wines. Sorry I have no informaiton and what type of wine varietal of this 5th wine.

Touring Cloer Vineyards - Take a walk through their beautiful vineyards and learn about each of the different grapes grown on the premises. Learn about the planting process through the harvesting and normal maintenance grape vines required. Then head inside and take a tour of the winery and learn about the wine making and aging process. There is also a great display of antique wine presses.

The wine tasting and touring at Cloer Family Vineyards are both truly educational.

The South Creek Vineyards Experience

My very first visit to South Creek Vineyards left me truly impressed by the beauty of their vineyardswalking in the tasting room being greeted by more than one friendly face was also a plus. I also can’t forget the little dog who was the first to greet me wagging its tail.

But one thing about South Creek Vineyard you need to know

Just as I sat down and just as began sampling my first wine, a funny looking man in an orange hate presented himself to me.

He asked, ”Do you know what the grape, said to the wine?”. Of course I had no idea? 

The man said, ”Pleasure to make you”!!! HAHA. Yeah I didn’t laugh either. The moral of this story, if you’re looking for a comedy club, don’t visit South Creek Vineyards.

Wines at South Creek Vineyards

South Creek Vineyards has at least six very good red wines to sample. And if you’re a white wine drinker, you will also be able to find both a Chardonnay and a Chardonnay reserve at South Creek. Both of these white wines are clean and crisp and go prefect with seafood.

I have a couple favorite wines at these NC vineyards and both of these are the red wine variety:

2009 Maestro – This is a blended red wine that goes great with beef. The fruit, dark cherries is forward and the finish lingers nicely. A very nice level of tannins in this wine.

2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve – A very rich full bodied red wine. This Cabernet will fill your nose with the smell of deep dark rip fruit. And your palate will be tickled with hints of pears and green apples.
