Owner description: MenaRick Vineyard and Winery is a family owned vineyard and winery located on 40 acres nestled in the foothills of the Yadkin Valley. We are a unique Yadkin Valley vineyard and winery specializing in Spanish and Portuguese varietals. We currently have 8 acres of vines planted, including Syrah, Merlot, Chardonnay, Albarino, Grenacha, Tempranillo, Touriga Nacional, plus a Vinho Branco and Blackberry and Peach wines. The MenaRick story started in 2006 with the purchase of the property in Ronda, NC-but our winemaking journeys started in California where Rick grew up and Mena in Portugal growing up around her family's vineyards. MenaRick is built from traditions and cultural experiences we had during our travels around the world. After planting our first 3.5 Acres of vines in 2008, we started planning and designing the winery and tasting room. Rick's years of building homes and doing construction was well-utilized in the new building which houses the winery and tasting room. We invite you to come, relax and enjoy the view from our vineyard, have a glass of wine (or bottle) and bring a picnic! Also, let MenaRick Vineyard and Winery host your intimate wedding, family and corporate events. Bem Vindo! Bienvendido! Welcome!

It's definitely a unique name. The wife's name is Mena and the husband's name is Rick. Hence, Menarick. During a visit to NC Wine country, my husband and I visited this vineyard. The wines are excellent. Their white wines are good, but their red wines are awesome! VERY unique favors. I've tried other unfiltered wines in the supermarket. They've always been dull of taste and weak in the flavor. These wines..... not weakness. The unfiltered processes gives them a very unique finish. We purchased 4 bottles of wine from this vineyard of all varieties. In fact, we're currently planning our next trip to purchase more. Unfortunately, they don't ship.

We also enjoyed a glass of wine by the fire pit, overlooking the vineyard. It's a peaceful and beautiful place.
