Default Yadkin wine region in NC

I've recently learned of the Yadkin wine region in North Carolina which
is a short enough drive for my wife and me to take a day trip visit. Has
anyone visited any wineries/vineyards in this region? I think we're
going to plan a trip for the spring and I'm looking for any comments and
suggetions.
thanks,
brian

FWIW, The winter issue of "The Wine Report" (an Atlanta/Birmingham/Charlotte
area tabloid) features full reviews of the Yadkin region's wines. If you
can't find a copy (the cover story is "50 Forbidden Wines"), try their
website: http://www.winesimple.com/

Bryan,

If you get a chance ... DEFINITELY get by Shelton Vineyards.

http://www.sheltonvineyards.com/

They have invested several million dollars here ... new french oak
barrels .. an outstanding winemaker.

Close your eyes ... taste their cabernet franc and let me know if you
think this wine was made in NC !!

Their vines are still young and in the very beginning they were buying
juice but now are doing their own. I think you will be pleasantly
surprised.
