North Carolina is known for many great wineries and vineyards. We’ve got a great a selection in the Triad area and on the outskirts as well. Check out our list below to find the best wineries in Lexington, East Bend, Greensboro, Pilot Mountain, Elkin, Lewisville, Mocksville, and many more! Take a day trip to one, or plan a winery tour to stop at a few! (Our readers love Yadkin Valley Wine Tours and Triad Eco Adventures.) Many of these are also family friendly and can be a great way to spend an afternoon listening to live music with the family.
