A Winery Tour

It should be on your bucket list to visit a winery at least once in your lifetime. It was on mine and after many years of wanting but never going to one, I  was finally able to check it off my own list this past weekend when Will, his family and I headed down to Albemarle, NC where Stony Mountain Vineyards is located.

Stony Mountain Vineyards has been around for about 20 years and is a family-owned and ran winery that makes you feel at home as soon as you drive down the gravel path, up to the log house where you park. With stunning views of the Uwharrie Mountains and the lower Yadkin Valley area, it's hard not to take photos and want to be outdoors sipping on a glass of wine all day long.

When we went to visit, the skies were cloudy and we experienced a light rain shower but all was okay since we were touring the winery and enjoying our wine tasting inside. But it wasn't long after our tasting that we were greeted by a beautiful rainbow so of course we ventured outside to snap a few photos and take in all of mother nature's beauty. It was the perfect way to end our mini trip before getting back on the road and heading home to Charlotte to soak in more time with family.

I thoroughly enjoyed my first experience at a winery and can't wait to visit others in the near future! What wineries have you visited and recommend? Please leave a comment with your suggestions so I can add them to my list of places to go.

  1. That sounds like so much fun! I have heard that North Carolina has many beautiful wineries. After I turn 21 next year I want to visit at least one with my friends- I actually thought that might be a fun 21st birthday weekend with girlfriends!

  2. This looks beautiful! I have heard that the Stony Mountain Vineyard was a great vineyard to go to! My fiance and I have been wanting to go to a vineyard but there aren't any good ones in Raleigh - may have to take a weekend trip up to Albemarle!

Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment! I will usually respond back to you via email (not here on the blog)...It's easier for me that way and hopefully it sparks a conversation for us! It makes me giddy that you're here and took the time to leave me a comment :)
