“Shelton Vineyards....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2012

I'm not much of a wine person but did enjoy taking the tour. We go up there on the motorcycle and stop by for a quick lunch or snack at the restauarant and to sit by the stream and wat ch the wildlife. And, when we are lucky, get to play with a couple of dogs who appear to live on the grounds. There is also entertainment during the summer...it is just a very pleasnat and relaxing place to be. If I were into wine I think it would be that much more....everyone I know loves the wines from Shelton

“Bring the family or another couple and make a day of it.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012

My husband and I love Shelton Vineyards. The people are very friendly and if you have visited more than once they will likely remember you! Shelton was started by two brothers who are still actively involved in the day to day operations...or so it appears usually one or both of the Shelton brothers are there to talk with you about the wine and deliver it to your car. Great selection of White and Red wines and a fantastic Port that we absolutely love.

We have visited during the holidays and enjoy the tasting room, touring the barrel room and dinner at Harvest Grill the on-site restaurant. But have to say visiting in the spring - fall is a treat! The Shelton grounds are breath taking, rolling hills and ponds all around! Shelton offer's concerts during the summer with Shag, beach and oldies music played . Bring the family or another couple and make a day of it. Lots of fun for everyone. One last thing if you decide to stay the night Hampton Inn is right up the road. Nice, clean, hotel with a tasting room off the lobby and free shuttle to and from the vineyard.

“Bost beautiful Vineyard in Yadkin Valley”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2012

Food is good in the restaurant but way over priced for what you get-even charge for a roll.....beautiful terrain, good wine, nice tasting room......about 45 minutes from Winston-Salem-easy ride, beautiful views, areas to picnic.

“Our stop after the meal.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2012

We always visit the Vineyards after the meal in the Great Harvest Grill. You can't do one without the other. The staff at both are the greatest and it is one of our favorite places to visit.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2012

We enjoy our visit here - pretty grounds, nice tour. The restaurant was quite good. We want to go back during harvest (Fall) to see the vineyard in operation.
