Best location for the Yadkin Valley Wine Trail

We are planning to spend 4days in October covering Yadkin Wine Trail. I need recommendations for a convent location to commute each day to the wineries... Looking for a nice hotel, scenic cabin or bed and breakfast.

Any experiences you could share would be awesome!!!

Depends on what wineries you plan on visiting. The sheltons who own shelton winery in Dobson own the Hampton Inn near their winery. They will

soon open an Italian restruant next to the Inn. There are many wineries

within a reasonable drive. They also have the Harvest Grill at their winery which offers good food at reasonable prices. We would suggest also a visit to Sanders Ridge. They also have a good resturant. Others that are

good would be Hanover Park, Raylen, Flynt Hill, Rag Apple Lassie, West Bend that now has a brew house. Hope this helps getting you started.

We always enjoy visiting Shelton Winery. The setting is beautiful, Harvest Restaurant is very good and the wines are good. It is always nice to pull up a rocking chair and take it all in, after a wine tasting. There is a Hampton in near by.

If you plan to visit Asheville, The Biltmore offers a great wine tasting also. The Biltmore wines are sold everywhere.

We enjoy the Yadkin Valley area for vineyards (north of Statesville). Make sure you visit Raffaldini Vineyards.....very scenic and solid wines. We've never stayed in the area, since it's a reasonable drive, but there are pleny of B&B's within range. Check one of the vineyards websites, they most likely will have a list of places to stay (hotels, B&B's and transportation). I know Raffaldini does. Great trip idea....you'll enjoy it.

We are going to the Yadkin Valley wine festival this month. We have reserved the Deer Run cabin here:

It seemed to be fairly close to the festival area. This will be our first visit.

10. Re: Best location for the Yadkin Valley Wine Trail

Well we went to the Yadkin Valley Wine Festival this past Saturday. It was really fun. Lots of wineries set-up and pouring tastes. The Elkin park grounds were spotless and very pretty. There were tables all around the park with water dispensers for all of us to stay hydrated.

We had a great time and would not hesitate to return.

The wines seemed rather expensive to us. They ranged, for the most part, from $15 to $18 per bottle. I know these are small vineyards, so they probably can't compete with the massive ones out of California, etc., but we don't normally pay that much for a bottle of wine (except on special occasions). Other than that, many of the wines we tasted were very good.

We LOVED Frog Hollar Cabins. Can't recommend them enough. Fabulous cabin and very private, which was one of our major requirements.
