If you've ever tasted wine from the Biltmore Estate (or any other east coast wine) then you may have come to the conclusion that East Coast wine isn't worth the overpriced bottle it's packaged in. Well Shelton is one exception. Located in the Yadkin Valley, they are the largest winery in North Carolina with 200 acres of vineyards. The Yadkin Valley is home to about 20 different wineries. It's a beautiful area of North Carolina and the drive itself is worth the trip. Shelton offers a tasting of five wines for five dollars and you get to keep the glass. They also offer winery tours.
