Boy - I sure do love wine!  :)  My husband and I want to take a two day tour of the vineyards in NC.  I think people would be very surprised with all of the quality vineyards we have - they are outstanding!

Hey Leesa: thanks for coming by! My husband just came home tonight and I told him at dinner about this place. We are planning on going soon. After several hobbies, that he has had, he has just started making wine... We just bottled our first batch two weeks ago. Take care.
