History
For decades, the Yadkin Valley was a key tobacco-growing region in North Carolina. However, as tobacco farming and cigarette manufacturing in the area declined, some growers, including tobacco farmers, have turned to wine-making. The native grapes of the Yadkin Valley in western North Carolina are the Muscadine and the Scuppernong. Early attempts to grow the European wine grape, Vitis vinifera, in the southeastern United States, including 18th century efforts by Thomas Jefferson at Monticello, Virginia, had mixed success. But in the past two to three decades, viticultural research has helped adapt these grapes to the climate, soil, and pests of the wine region.

Today, the 1.4 million‐acre Yadkin Valley, just west of Winston‐Salem, is home to exquisite vineyards and wineries and was approved as North Carolina's first American Viticultural Area (AVA). The Yadkin Valley designation appears on bottles when wine is made from 85 percent grapes grown in this region. The majority of wineries offer tours and tastings.
