Shelton Vineyards in Dobson NC

It's fall, my favorite time of year.  Now is a good time to travel up to the Blue Ridge Mountains to feel the cool crisp air and hopefully see the colorful fall leaves.  Erica and I decided to stop a few of the many wineries in NC on our mini vacation.  On the way to Blowing Rock we took a slight diversion to Shelton Vineyards in Dobson NC
Here is what they say on their website...

Located in the Yadkin Valley American Viticultural Area, the vineyard shares a similar climate and growing season to that of some of the best wine growing regions in Europe. The vineyard is one of the largest on the East Coast.

One thing I like about Shelton Vineyards is the fact that they have a restaurant. We decided to eat lunch and enjoy some of their delicious wines.  First stop was the Harvest Grill 
 We decide to try their wine flight.  It came out on a tiered display.  Five wines of your choosing.  As they brought the flights out there were many Oohhs and Aahhs from our fellow diners.  It also sparked lively conversation and we made new friends:-)
 I know you are wondering if we finished our flights.  Let's just say Erica was flying a bit higher then me.  I drove after our adventure.  (She drove for me the next night:-)

Erica and I split the Grilled Carolina Mountain Trout.  Delicious!

After our dinner we walked around a portion of the property. ...


We went into the wine store.  We did not have time to do the tour.  I have done it in the past and recommend it.  I did buy a bottle to take home. This was my favorite wine in my flight...
Harvest White...Yummy
Happy Travels, Eats, and Wine Sipping...
