Childress Vineyards in Lexington NC

There are a ton of wineries in NC.  

Childress is one that Cindy and I had the opportunity to visit last Nov.  It is beautiful. 

We signed up for the winery tour.  One of the first things they asked was 
"is there anyone here who has not heard the Childress name?"  I think Cindy and 
I were the only ones to raised a reluctant hand.  The inaudible gasps were deafening.  
We soon learned he is a NASCAR guy and NASCAR is huge in NC.  Here is a quote from their site....

"By opening the doors to Childress Vineyards in 2004, NASCAR team owner Richard Childress
 fulfilled a longtime dream that grew from the days when he first began racing in 
California and visited wineries with friends. What began as camaraderie and good times 
soon became an engaging passion for world-class wines and then the vision to build a world-class winery."

We visited right before Christmas.  I loved the entry door.

Let the tour begin....

Now for the outdoor tour...
Great place for a wedding.

Cindy welcoming all to the vineyards...

They have a Bistro on site.
It is a lovely place to sip a glass of wine while enjoying a wonderful meal.

I had the delicious chicken salad.  I would order it again. Yummy!
The gift shop all decorated for the holidays.

My favorite scripture.....;-)

Get out and explore.  I suggest you visit Childress Vineyards.  
You won't be disappointed.
