JoLo Winery and Vineyard Yadkin Valley part 2

Saturday, April 5 was the grand opening of JoLo Winery and Vineyard, Pilot Mountain, NC.  The owners, JW and Kristen Ray, have done a fabulous job in creating a food and wine experience in the Yadkin Valley.  The vineyards, winery, tasting room and grounds are beautiful.  The opening day festivities included a live band and fantastic food samples.  We tasted the five wines currently available and although young wines, each had unique, enjoyable flavors.  My favorite was the Crimson Creek, a chambourcin red wine.  It is clear that the owners are approaching every aspect of this business in a first-class manner.  This winery should be on your itinerary for your next trip to the Yadkin Valley.
