What Makes North Carolina Wine Unique?

Ever considered what makes North Carolina wine so unique? The truth is, experiencing North Carolina wine is far different from other bottles you can buy at the grocery store because each one is packed full of sweet, and savory flavors. The types of grapes grown, the terroir, and the climate temperature are distinct to the region, which creates the layers of flavors you can find in every glass of RayLen wine.

One of the best-kept secrets of North Carolina? The Yadkin Valley wine region! Most of the wineries in North Carolina rest within this beautiful oasis, including RayLen. While there are plenty of tasting rooms in this beautiful state, nothing beats the flavors of the Yadkin Valley, and the wineries you can find in Mocksville, North Carolina.

Local Flavors

One of the best parts about North Carolina wine is getting the opportunity to explore your own backyard. At RayLen Vineyards and Winery, we age our wine with care and craft our wines to please a variety of palettes. Our wine production is unlike any other, and many of our wines are one of a kind.

We take time to properly age our grapes on our 40 acres of rolling hills, before we transform them into a Cabernet Sauvignon or Cabernet Franc. This is how we seal in all of the rich flavors, and truly capture the uniqueness of North Carolina wine.

Personalized Tastings and Tours
