Founded in 1999 by Brothers Charlie and Ed Shelton, Shelton Vineyards was envisioned as a new agricultural resource for an area once dependent on tobacco farming. Located in the heart of North Carolina's Yadkin Valley, Shelton Vineyards is 180 degrees from any winery you will find on the West Coast. The distinctive characteristics of Shelton wine come from the unique soil and climate of the Yadkin Valley. This helps give Shelton wine an inimitable taste that holds its own against any wine from any area in the world. We invite you to visit us, try our wine and see if you agree that our wine is as unique as the area we are in.

Johnny Beamer is a fantastic ambassador for this winery. His service exceeded expectations and certainly set a high standard for further visits in the area.

We came to view the winery and have a picnic lunch. Instead we found a corvette show with a great view of a winery, good staff and a wonderful 4 hours of wine and picnicking. We will be coming again. Shelton's winery is AWESOME.

If your kids are mature. Weather permitting, there are short trails around ponds with picnic tables. My kids would be bored and uninterested of the tour and tasting room/gift shop geared to adults.
