Meet Your Neighbor...Shelton Vineyards

Tuesday, October 23, 2012


In 1994, brothers Charlie and Ed Shelton purchased at auction the land on which Shelton Vineyards sits. Although they had no firm plans for the future of the property, the land is located just a few miles from where the two brothers grew up. The groundbreaking ceremony was held June 23, 1999. The winery is a 33,000 square-foot building designed by well-known North Carolina architect, Ray Troxell. This was his first time designing a winery, and the spectacular result speaks for itself.

Travel North Carolina: Wine Country

Wednesday, October 10, 2012


Gone With the Wynns had no idea this little yadkin valley was a booming wine country. These wineries are nothing like the big ones you would encounter in the Napa Valley of California. Most are relatively new small batch wines and run by young families full of excitement and a deep love for the art and craft of wine making.

Gone With the Wynns is an unscripted tale of the quirky couple who traded in everyday life to satisfy their wear-out-your-shoes sense of adventure.
