Yadkin Winter Reds Event for Two Winter Weekends

Sanders Ridge Winery

Sanders Ridge Vineyards and Winery

Of the four seasons, winter is one of the slowest seasons in winery tasting rooms. In fact there are wineries that close their tasting rooms during the winter, while others shorten their hours.

To encourage wine lovers to enjoy the ambiance of a winery tasting room, some wineries plan special events. In my blog yesterday, I wrote about the Seneca Lake Wine Trail Pasta & Wine event taking place the third weekend of January.

Farther to the south in North Carolina, many wineries in Yadkin Valley are looking forward to two special winter weekends, January 31-February 1 and February 28-March 1. This is the Sixth Annual “Yadkin Winter Reds” event.

Each participating Yadkin County winery plans to feature their Winter Red paired with a 4-ounce serving of a food.  Each winery will be offering one food item paired with a 2 oz wine sample. Depending on the wineries you choose to visit you may find Herb Roasted Pork Loin, Chili, Lamb Meatballs, Meatball Sliders, Creamy Tomato Basil Soup or other delicious treats. A schedule of what the wineries are offer is detailed on the Visit Yadkin website.

The cost is $20 for each weekend (good for Saturday and Sunday.)Ticket holders will know which winery to start at – where they will obtain a glass and map. Tickets are available online.

If planning to stay overnight, checkout the following three lodging sites which are offering discounts for the Yadkin Winter Red event. Be sure to ask about a discount.
