I received an email last night from a lady who just moved to Clemmons, NC. In her email she asked if I could tell her if there were any good North Carolina wineries located near her. So I wanted to write a post addressing her question and let her know she is a very lucky lady because one of the very best wineries in North Carolina is located very nearby here
From the picture you can see Clemmons, NC (where she lives) is right down the road from Winston-Salem. And further down the road is a great winery named Raylen Vineyards in Mocksville. In fact, there are many different wineries in the Winston Salem area you may want to visit but the wines and entertainment and overall atmosphere you will find at Raylen Vineyards is hard to beat.
Below you well find a few more specifics about this winery and also a map which will provide you with driving directions from your current location.

So if you’re in love with great wine, then you should feel like a kid in a candy store when visiting this winery. Each of these wines are available for purchase and/or tasting at the winery. Here are a few of the special ones:
Pinot Grigio - This wine variety is growing in popularity across the USA and the Pinot Grigio at Raylen is an exceptionally bold Pinot. This wine has a lemon lime zest with hints of grapefruit throughout and a crisp clean finish.
Barrel Chardonnay - The best selling wine at the winery. Provides a fresh taste of pears and green apples. A very clean wine
Yadkin Gold – This wine explodes on your palate with tastes of pineapple and melon!!! Yadkin gold was honored by both the USA Today and SOuthern Living Magazine as a great wine.
Carolinius – This is a red wine blend. The blend includes 7 different red wines, this is quite the experiment.
Category 5 - Named after the strongest category of Hurricanes. Those of you who live on the coast definitely need this full bodied and fruit-forward wine.
Sparkling Brut – One of the finest sparkling white wine blends in North Carolina. Very bubbly notes of strawberry, raspberry accompanied by a hint of honey will play on your taste buds.
