Overview
More
Founded in 1999 by Brothers Charlie and Ed Shelton, Shelton Vineyards was envisioned as a new agricultural resource for an area once dependent on tobacco farming. Located in the heart of North Carolina's Yadkin Valley, Shelton Vineyards is 180 degrees from any winery you will find on the West Coast. The distinctive characteristics of Shelton wine come from the unique soil and climate of the Yadkin Valley. This helps give Shelton wine an inimitable taste that holds its own against any wine from any area in the world. We invite you to visit us, try our wine and see if you agree that our wine is as unique as the area we are in.

We heard of this place from some people who have stopped before, so we decided to try it. They are very good wines and they have a great selection to choose from. Definite stop if you are in the area.

The food is average, not bad a place just expected better food. The wine is good, so come thirsty. If you a treat try the port wine with dessert.

No matter where you look their are wine bottles with multiple awards draped around their neck. They have the right formula for success

$10 for a tasting of 6 wines you choose from their list. Hospitality of staff was delightful. If you love wine or vineyards I recommend you add this place as one to visit.

If your kids are mature. Weather permitting, there are short trails around ponds with picnic tables. My kids would be bored and uninterested of the tour and tasting room/gift shop geared to adults.
