Hmmm where to start. We've been visiting McRitchie's winery for almost 7 years now. Sean and Patti are very welcoming. It is clear that Sean is a craftsman and Patti is a great spokesperson for what they wanted to accomplish in the Yadkin appellation. This family has been a huge influence on wine country in NC. Take time to research how involved the family is in our state. It is a great story in itself. The wine & the cider. Most of the vines here are so very young compared to other wine producing areas. Nonetheless, Sean's craftsmanship more than makes up for the youth of his vineyard. The merlot and the ring of fire blend are two of our favorites. Buy a bottle on line, or better yet, come and visit and try one for yourself. As far as the cider, I am almost speechless. By using the heirloom apples, Sean captures a piece of history that represents the region perfectly.
