Hello all!!…Only 8 more days until Opening Day for the 2017 Tasting season. To celebrate we are going to provide an additional wine
for tasting on the 21st, and 22nd . This wine is a three way blend of white wine from the Fantastic 2016 Vintage. It is a true Alsatian (Old World) style wine. We just removed it from the European Oak Barrels last week. We will continue bulk-aging it until this fall. Sometime this fall we will bottle it, and decide upon a name and a label for it. Release date is scheduled for April 2018. So come on out and get a sneak taste of this one of a kind wine.
Karen and I look forward to your visits, and serving you this year.

The Chardonel Grapes were the first harvested at Nottely River Valley Vineyards in Murphy, NC for the 2015 Vintage. They are absolutely Perfect!!
If you have never tried Chardonel, it is a French hybrid grape with a body and flavor all wine drinkers can appreciate. Excellent alone or, paired with cheese, seafood, chicken, or pork, come out to the vineyard and sample it in our tasting room today.
We have been truly blessed with a great growing season so far during the 2015 Vintage. Three blocks of grapes have been harvested, with four more to go. If the weather stays dry, with hot days This will be a Vintage year for the record books. The taste and the analytical analysis of them are stunning. That really makes it difficult as a wine maker. You can easily make a simple mistake and destroy what the vines and the “terroir” provide you. It is a very humbling task to nurture , from juice to finished, aged, bottled wine, with the least influence, allowing the vine to speak to the consumer. So our task is slow, long, and difficult. Cheers!
Welcome to the 2015 Vintage. Nottely River Valley Vineyard’s first harvest for 2015 happened on August 28, and we will be harvesting until the end of September from the looks of things. 2015 is shaping up to be a FANTASTIC VINTAGE, the chemistry and flavor of the grapes are great. If we continue to have the dry hot weather to the end of the month this will be the best Vintage we have had.
