DAVIDSON COUNTY, N.C. (WGHP) — May is North Carolina Wine Month, and they are plenty of reasons to raise a glass.
The Tarheel state is home to 400 vineyards and 200 wineries, that includes a Native American winery! Native Vines Winery in Davidson County sits on land where the Keyauwee tribe once lived.
Now, the 40-acre farm is owned and run by a mother-daughter duo who are descendants of the Lumbee tribe in Robeson County. They make 14 varieties of wine and bottle them in small batches on-site. They strive to use simple organic ingredients to keep their wine as natural as possible.
FOX8 Foodie Shannon Smith gives us a taste of their unique style of wine.
