Bonfires and Super Moons

We are still in the Yadkin Valley exploring the wine country and the people.  We spent a little time walking around the small town of Elkin.  They have a small farmers market where we got to know some of the locals and pick up a few goodies.

We spent the afternoon back at Grassy Creek Winery (where we are staying).  Liz (manages property and cabins), Wayne (works in the tasting room and he’s an excellent story teller) and Jim (the winemaker) spent some time telling us stories of the property.  We learned the farm started in the 20’s and was known for its Golden Guernsey cows and “the best chocolate milk in the world”.  The red barn used to be stables and is now the tasting room and the white barn now houses the winery.  We have really enjoyed the old farm setting; it brings a sense of history to a new vineyard.

The fire pit is a common gathering place for the families that own the winery, the people who work it, guests and locals who come out to enjoy the scenery.  Add in a super moon, guitar, a glass of wine and it’s a perfect night in the Yadkin Valley!

A special thanks to the Grassy Creek Winery, Liz, Wayne and Jim!  You guys rock!

Famous for my "how-not-to" videos, and typically the man behind the camera, sometimes I’m forced to be here in the “spotlight”. When you see my face you’re probably reading something more technical than adventurous, but either way I do my best to tell it like it is and infuse my opinions into the commentary…after all this is a blog and not MSN.

    Sounds great. So, how many wineries are there in Yadkin Valley and is there any white water in the area?
