We're all in this together!
So I've been thinking a lot about the North Carolina wine industry as a whole, and this post was prompted by the recent inaugural NC Wine Bloggers Conference. As we've mentioned in last week's post, we recently got together with fellow bloggers and wineries to brainstorm how to make NC great, in a nutshell.
A rising tide lifts all boats, so they say. (Actually so says JFK). This is true of the wine industry as well. Elevating and promoting the NC region, in turn, helps all the wineries. We are all one team working to convince the world that we can make wine, and make it well! Our goal as the Wine Mouths is to be a part of this, and help where we can. We also want to give a shout out to those wineries who have helped us along the way.
A special thanks also goes to those wineries that showed up to work with the bloggers. We as a team can push this region forward and let the world know of the fantastic wine we are producing. If you are looking for a winery to visit, why not pick one of these? You have our seal of approval that they are working hard to produce great wine, and also make NC a great wine region. Support them!
Addison Farms Vineyard
Cypress Bend Vineyards
Hanover Park Vineyard
Haze Gray Vineyards (keep an eye out for their opening in 2019!)
Lake James Cellars
Morgan Ridge Vineyard
Parker-Binns Vineyard and Winery
Sweet Home Carolina Vineyard & Winery
We also want to give a very special thanks to Grove Winery and Vineyards! They were the first winery we ever visited in North Carolina, back in 2009 (thank you Groupon), and they were the first winery to host our wine appreciation classes. We work together to teach about all the nuances of wine, and why it is so freaking great.
In our appreciation of all things wine, let us all take a close look at North Carolina and see what all they have to offer!
PS - The WHOLE time I was dreaming up this post, I've had the theme song from Full House in my head. (ie the title of the post). You're welcome.
