We found Cypress Bend in a web search and decided to take the several hour trip to check them out. Glad we did! We each enjoyed the tasting of dry muscadine and other NC grapes wines and had to have a few bottles Cab Franc. We also grabbed tickets to the "Jazzy Friday" festivities. The jazz/R&B band was a lot of fun and the 70's era music brought back fond memories for us and the crowd of several hundred of our new wine drinking friends under a big tent next to the tasting room. We snacked on complementary cheese cubes and a variety of crackers and loved the curried chicken salad. We purchased dinner from an onsite food vendor truck from a selection of several sandwiches, sides, and non-alcoholic beverages. We opted for the BBQ sandwiches with cole slaw and mozzarella sticks with marinara, which went well with the Franc. The vineyard was operating a bar under big tent with the wine being sold at regular price in nice ice buckets to take the edge off the warm summer evening. We will definitely be back on an odd Friday to enjoy the beach music evening that alternates with the jazz band.
