Hi, I’m Anna Marie. I’m a wife, mother, Irish dancer, and pug mom living in North Carolina. I also love to travel. Come along for the ride! If you see something you like, don’t be afraid to say, ‘Pull over and let me out.’

It’s the time of year when tourists head for the hills. Okay, they’re a little taller than hills – they’re fully fledged mountains in Western North Carolina. Nonetheless, the Blue Ridge Mountains and surrounding foothills offer the finest fall foliage, breathtaking views and cozy accommodations that attract visitors to spend time enjoying fall festivities and the great outdoors. While viewing the vivid oranges and yellows of the leaves on the trees there are also some beautiful reds, whites, and rosés in the mountains worth investigating.

Red, white and rosé wines – that is.

The North Carolina Wine Country is growing, thriving, and boasts some of the finest wineries in the country.  Several of the Tar Heel state’s acclaimed wineries are nestled in the hills and foothills of the Blue Ridge adding to the brilliant colors in Western North Carolina. Here are two charming North Carolina wineries we found that are worth checking out.

South Creek Vineyards and Winery -Nebo, North Carolina

About 45-minutes east of Asheville in the foothills of the Blue Ridge near Lake James is a tiny hamlet called Nebo. It’s in Nebo you’ll find South Creek Vineyards and Winery. The scenic driveway leading to the historic farmhouse which now serves as the tasting room is enhanced by a big red barn, horses and rows and rows of grapes.

Inside, owners James and Mary Rowley serve up their award-winning Bordeaux Style wines. Outside, there’s a large area inviting visitors to sit, relax and sip while taking in the peaceful, bucolic surroundings.

Additionally, South Creek features wine accessories, regional cheeses and hosts special events as well as a wine club. This is a friendly winery where getting away from it all for a little while is a distinct pleasure.

South Creek Vineyards and Winery
2240 South Creek Road, Nebo, NC 28761
Open Wednesdays thru Saturdays 11 AM to 5 PM, Sundays 1 PM to 5 PM.

The tasting room is warm and welcoming and there’s an expansive outdoor seating area. Sit by the fire and enjoy the charming surroundings – perfect for socializing, sipping and breathing in the fresh air of the High Country. Order a cheese platter and unwind as you immerse yourself in the natural beauty, flavorful wines and romantic atmosphere. The family-owned Linville Falls Winery is the perfect escape where for a little while, the stresses of life will disappear.

Combining fine wine with the fall colors and natural beauty of the North Carolina Mountains is a wonderful alliance and a delightful autumn getaway weekend.
