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.
