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.

$10 for a tasting of 6 wines you choose from their list. Hospitality of staff was delightful. If you love wine or vineyards I recommend you add this place as one to visit.

My wife and I always enjoy visiting Shelton Vineyards. The wine tastings at the winery are fun and educational. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly. The wines have improved greatly over the years and are now very, very good. The Family Reserve wines are excellent.

If your kids are mature. Weather permitting, there are short trails around ponds with picnic tables. My kids would be bored and uninterested of the tour and tasting room/gift shop geared to adults.
