Grand Opening North Carolina Viticulture and Enology Center

Hi everyone. I wanted to send this incredible news to all of you. I was at this grand opening of the Surry CC Viticulture and Enology Center and it is fabulous. This is in the Yadkin Valley, NC, just about 1/2 hour from me. We now have a state of the art teaching facility with a bonded winery that can actually sell the wine. In addition, they already have a tasting room in Yadkinville, NC.

This school has already won gold medals in international competitions. Obviously, they are doing something right. The school is now attracting students from other states, so, if you are interested in pursuing a career in viticulture or wine making, this is the place to be. There are two links below. The second one has a nice little video with it that shows some of the inside and ends with a picture of the outside of the facility.

Exciting news for NC, which is now, as you will read, number 7 in wine production in the United States. It is a wonderful success story.
