Shelton Vineyards Coach, Tour & Concert

“Most Beautiful Vineyard in Yadkin Valley” 

The Vineyard

Known as the Premier Winery in the East, Shelton Vineyards is the largest family-owned estate winery in North Carolina. Over the last 10 years, the “retired” Shelton Brothers, Charlie and Ed, have transformed this once dairy farm into a fairytale legacy that has already impacted the local wine industry and economy so dramatically that both humble brothers were named co-recipients of Mount Airy’s Citizen of the Year award for 2010. As you travel through the winery, you learn and witness the entire wine making process from start to finish, including the growing of the varietals, the crushing of the grapes, the fermentation tanks with gravity line technology, the barreling process, the bottling process, and the tasting process. After your tour, the vineyard is your playground.
