Take A Trolley Ride to North Carolina Wineries

North Carolina has numerous wineries both boutique size and larger. Some are the “mom and pop” size where the owners are dabbling seriously in making their own wines and offering visitors a relaxing time. Other wineries are seriously into producing wine and making a big business out of it. In either of these cases, wine enthusiasts are likely to discover that the international grapes are grown in the west while many wineries in eastern North Carolina are growing and making wines with international grapes and muscadine grapes

In western North Carolina most of the wineries are small. However, a recent news item was about visiting a few wineries in July by trolley. Two organizations, The Trolley Company and the French Broad Vignernons, are working together to provide these opportunities.
