RayLen Vineyards and Winery’s sits on rolling hills and takes a winding drive through 35,000 European varietal grape vines to visit. Stop by the tasting room and enjoy the breathtaking views, serene atmosphere, and of course, winemaker Steve Shepard’s award-winning wines.
Raylen Vineyards is located in the internationally-recognized, federally-approved, Yadkin Valley American Viticulture Area (AVA) of North Carolina’s Piedmont region, an exceptional area for growing European wine grapes. RayLen Vineyards is a charter member of the AVA, joining in the early 2000s when there were only four other wineries in the area. Many other NC wineries are now a part of the AVA, but RayLen Vineyards remains a leading pioneer of the Yadkin Valley with over 35,000 vines on our property today.
