North Carolina Wines
What sets our NC winery apart?
Believe it or not, North Carolina’s history with wine and vineyards is relatively short. What started as only a handful of wineries and vineyards in the 1990’s has accelerated into more than 500 wineries and almost 200 vineyards today across the state, from the Piedmont to the High Country. Located in North Carolina’s wine county, we are proud to be part of growing list of local wineries and vineyards!
Our North Carolina Winery
You don’t have to drive all the way to the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains to find great North Carolina wineries. Our vineyard is just a short drive from Winston-Salem, NC, and convenient to Charlotte, Greensboro, and other areas in the North Carolina Piedmont region. Come see us on your next wine trail!
The right red wine can turn a good dinner into an excellent meal, or add just the right touch to an evening with friends. From light and elegant to bold and flavorful, our selection of award-winning red wines has something for every palette and every occasion. Our most popular wine, Category 5, is a robust blend with flavors that will hit you like a storm; it’s a customer favorite and a must-try!
Sit back and unwind with a light and refreshing glass of white wine from RayLen. Our selection of white wines has won more than 117 awards and counting. From Riesling to Chardonnay and everything in between, our wines are carefully crafted into a perfect tasting experience. Be sure to taste our White Carolinius, a medium-dry blend that is sure to please.
