Luxury Picnic Experience at Shelton

The Vineyard Experience, Elevated

The Shelton Experience

Shelton Vineyards boasts an impressive array of vitis vinifera grape varieties flourishing on its estate. These grape varieties include the renowned Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Merlot, Malbec, Tannat, Petit Verdot, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, and Petit Manseng. What sets Shelton Vineyards apart, and is a practice followed worldwide, is the utilization of bud wood originating from Europe, which is carefully grafted onto Native American rootstocks. This grafting technique enhances the vine's resistance to diseases, ensuring the health and vitality of the grapevines.

Shelton Vineyards places a firm belief in the notion that exceptional wine truly begins in the vineyard itself. Nestled in the heart of North Carolina's Yadkin Valley AVA, this location benefits from the perfect combination of climate and soil conditions, lending itself to grape cultivation of the highest caliber. The vineyard's unwavering dedication to sustainable farming practices, coupled with meticulous hands-on care, fosters the cultivation of grapes of the utmost quality. As a result, the wines produced by Shelton Vineyards proudly reflect the unique terroir of the Yadkin Valley AVA. With the expertise of their winemakers, who skillfully enhance the bounty of their land, Shelton Vineyards has garnered numerous prestigious awards for their exceptional wines.
