Four of my favorite wines at Valley River Vineyards

Mattie Hatchett Red – This is a spicy number. A red wine that goes perfect with steaks and sausages.

Country Boy Blush – This is the best Muscadine wine in the area. Goes great with traditional southern meals.

North Carolina Chardonnay – This excellent white wine has a tropical flavor and goes great with chicken dishes.

Cabernet Sauvignon – This is another spicy wine and also includes notes of blackberry and cherry. Goes great with a variety of different cheeses.

Another point of interest in the city of Mt. Airy is the Andy Griffith museum, you know Andy from Mayberry? This is his hometown.

Wine

A great selection of wines and hand-crafted brew to boot!!!

The prices are reasonable here most bottles fall in the $10-12 price range. Also a few more expensive wines in the mid $20 dollar range.

The selection includes different choices in dry, semi-sweet, sweet and couple muscadine wines can also be found at Old North State Winery.

What are some of the favorites here? Here’s are a couple that you should consider during the wine tasting.

Restless Soul – this dry blended red wine is very popular with the natives. This is a fruity wine and at $12 a bottle a great deal.

Afternoon Delight – This is the most popular muscadine at the winery. And was a silver medal winner at the mid-Atlantic southeastern wine competition. Price per bottle only $10.

Tannat - This is a peppery wine. Not up everyone’s alley but if you like a black pepper and raspberry, you will at least wet to wet your palate with this wine during the wine tasting experience. Priced at $22 in 2013.

This North Carolina winery does have a wine club with many different benefits. One of the benefits is 15% off all wine purchases in the wine tasting room.

Events
