More Carolina wineries

Can you believe North Carolina now has 100 wineries? The new Cauble Creek Vineyard in Salisbury brings the count to that number, the North Carolina Wine & Grape Council has announced. It also says that most Tar Heels now live within 100 miles of a winery. Even moonshine isn’t that convenient these days.

Cauble Creek uses muscadine grapes, a sweet native grape. The wine industry started with muscadines and scuppernongs, but many wineries grow the European varieties now.
