"Our hostess knowledge of the wines, ciders and operation of the winery was perfect. She made us feel very welcomed. Enjoyed all the wines and ciders in the sampling and bought 8 bottles to take back home. Best cider I have ever experienced. "
"Generally not impressed with small wineries, but enjoy trying them for that one gem you get every once in a while. I left with red wine, white wine, reserve wine, and two types of cider. I will return. Please go visit this wonderful place."
"Every wine we tasted was good. I even enjoyed the ciders. It's a beautiful location. The decor was gorgeous. The meat and cheese board was great. We even sampled some great chocolate. It's a must if you're in the area and enjoy wine. "
"The tasting room is rustic with contemporary wood wine bar. Their selection of wines and ciders were all very good. It's the only winery that I have had a Traminette. I have a feeling that the next trip will be sooner rather than later."
"A hidden gem in the Yadkin Valley! The hostess shared information about the vineyard and wines, we appreciated both! We tasted wines and ciders that were delicious! Yes, they are off the beaten path, but they are most certainly worth the visit! "
"This is always one of our stops in NC wine country. They have some wonderful wines and great servers that can really expand your wine knowledge. One of our favorites!"

The NCBeerGuys are drinking something new for them, a cider, and particularly the McRitchie Hard Cider out of McRitchie Winery and Ciderworks of Thurmond, just north of Elkin. McRitchie Ciderworks says it was North Carolina's first cidery and they use only North Carolina mountain grown heirloom apples. The style of McRitchie Hard Cider is billed as "similar to that traditionally found in the Brittany region of northern France, a sharp, dry, brilliantly clear sparkling beverage." The apples are handpicked at an orchard located in the Brushy Mountains of North Carolina. Each blend is selected from a variety of heritage mountain apples with the goal of creating a structured, elegant cider that captures the essence of a fresh picked apple. This is a true artisan product of North Carolina. Learn more about the NCBeerGuys...

McRitchie Winery and Ciderworks provides a beautiful view, friendly service, and superb wines. We were warmly greeted upon walking in the door and we felt as if we could stay for hours. They offer wines from sweet whites to dry reds and of course our favorite, their signature semi-sweet Hard Apple Cider wine. If you have not experienced McRitchie Winery and Cider Works, make a trip out. No matter the weather, you will enjoy it.
