Fall Wine Tour Update

Dear Wine Wanderers,

As we head into Fall, we are limiting our food & wine tours to 8 people or less to better allow social distancing in our vehicle & at the vineyards. This will remain in place until the governor eases restrictions.

Our tour format consists of curated bottles of wine at 4 vineyards w/food pairings at 3 plus a breakfast & wine pairing before we begin. We no longer include vineyard tastings as many vineyards are not currently doing them.

We look forward to your support and the support of NC vineyards.

Sincerely,
Meg & Jess
NC Wine Gals

Carolina Food & Wine Tours

Join the NC Wine Gals on weekly Yadkin Valley Wine Tours. It’s an exciting time to be drinking Carolina wine.

Each tour has hand selected wine from a variety of vineyards ranging from Chardonnay & Montepulciano to exotic Vermentino & Petit Verdot. In addition to wine, we bring food that is perfectly paired & utterly delicious.

Private tours are also available, click here more info.

A full list of available tour dates is at the bottom of this page. If you don’t see availability for the date you want, contact us, and see if another NC Wine Gal is available to take you out.
