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.Both brothers have a keen interest in fine wines. This, coupled with the area's ideal climate of mild winters and moderate summers, led the two to consider developing a vineyard as a personal hobby. After much study and consultation, the Sheltons' hobby quickly became a full-fledged business operation. "We saw the impact this vineyard, and others in the area, could have 20 to 30 years down the road," says Charlie Shelton. "With tobacco farming on the decline, we saw it as a great way to diversify the farming industry and open doors to new possibilities in the area, such as agri-tourism. People love to tour vineyards, taste the wine and hear the story of winemaking. And, at Shelton Vineyards, we believe we have a great story to tell." 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. Read less

Somewhat light-bodied, rather dry, underripe berry flavors. Finish is a little short and sour.
