Founded in 1999 by Brothers Charlie and Ed Shelton, Shelton Vineyards was envisioned as a new agricultural resource for an area once dependent on tobacco farming. Located in the heart of North Carolina's Yadkin Valley, Shelton Vineyards is 180 degrees from any winery you will find on the West Coast. The distinctive characteristics of Shelton wine come from the unique soil and climate of the Yadkin Valley. This helps give Shelton wine an inimitable taste that holds its own against any wine from any area in the world. We invite you to visit us, try our wine and see if you agree that our wine is as unique as the area we are in.

We have been to Shelton numerous times and have never been disappointed. Whether you are dining at Harvest Grill, enjoying a tasting, or taking in the beautiful grounds, you are guaranteed to have a pleasant visit. We have visited as a couple as well as with our young children and have always had fun.

This is a favorite meeting spot for my wife and I and my cousin and his wife every couple years. It is usually the first winery we hit in what is a goldmine area for wineries; some 40-50+ in the Yadkin area of NC. First, why we consider this particular winery "ground zero". The winery is just a few miles... More

I highly recommend their Riesling but found all their wines to be very good whether you like dry or semi or sweeter wines.

Shelton Winery is a special stop on anyone's winery tour list. Wine tastings are available in a large, well stocked gift shop. Tours are also available and there are many special events held there. The large grounds in front of the main building are beautifully maintained and are the location for summer concerts.

We stayed at the nearby Hampton Inn and had heard great things about the winery/restaurant so we ate dinner there. The food was superb and the wait staff excellent.

We traveled to several wineries on this day and the staff were very nice. The grounds were beautiful but for me personally, the wine was not my favorite. This is par for course that everyone doesn't like the same thing. I recommend trying out because you never know when you will find something you like!

Stopped at Shelton Vineyards, lots of grape vines and a very nice setting. They have several ponds with bridges to cross, I see why the have weddings there. Took the tour and sampled their wines. Very nice selection of whites and reds. Also had lunch at the Harvest Grill and the food was good. Make sure you make reservations

Really enjoyed my trip and the Harvest Festival itself. The band was good and played for over 3 hrs (unfortunately they quit at 4pm and the festival was over at 6pm). Great variety of vendors displaying their wares. Wine tasting was free for this event. Bought 3 bottles of their Reisling which was very good, as was their harvest white.... More
