Do you think sweet wines when you think of wine grown in North Carolina? Maybe you don’t think of wine and North Carolina in the same thought at all. If either of these applies to you, you need to take this tour! We’ll visit the largest winery on the Outer Banks, Sanctuary Vineyards, for a private tour of the vineyards and the operations, an exclusive tasting of their wines, and lunch on the grounds of the vineyard. It’s true that the native grape of North Carolina is the Muscadine, which does produce a sweet wine. But, at Sanctuary Vineyards, you’ll also find 10 acres of grapes representing several different varietals, including Sangiovese, Traminette, Albarino, Syrah, Chardonel, and others. These grapes produce an astounding variety of wines that will appeal to every palate. You’ll learn about the different grapes that are grown in the vineyards and about how those grapes go from the vine to the wine bottle. You’ll experience an amazing array of wines during your tasting. Then, you will enjoy a lunch on the grounds of the vineyard or in the Tasting Room. If you enjoy wine, you’ll love this tour. We do the driving, so you can relax and savor the afternoon! Price includes transportation, tasting and tour fees, and lunch.
Please note that reservations for this tour will be taken until 9:00am on the day of the tour.
