North Carolina

United States

Description

North Carolina has three recognized AVAs Yadkin Valley, it's sub-appellation Swan Creek and Haw River Valley. All three of these AVAs are located in the north with Yadkin Valley in the north-east and Haw Valley River in the north central area, the soil in these areas tend to be largely clay-loam.


While most of the wines in these regions are produced using Italian and French grape varietals, North Carolina is also home to the Scuppernong grape, a variety of the Muscadine grape which can be found throughout the southern United States. Scuppernong is most often used to make dry, red wines.
