September is NC Wine & Grape Month!

Whether it’s sipping a favorite N.C. wine or enjoying grapes directly off the vine, there are plenty of ways for people to celebrate N.C. Wine and Grape Month in September.   During NC’s Wine & Grape Celebration during the month of September,  plan a trip to Hendersonville and stay at The Melange Bed & Breakfast.  During your visit, stop by any one of  Hendersonville’s three wineries / vineyards: Burntshirt Vineyards, St. Paul Mountain Vineyards, and the Falderal Winery.

North Carolina is home to the nation’s first cultivated wine grape, the scuppernong, which grew wild on Roanoke Island. Known as the “Mother Vine,” the plant is more than 400 years old and covers half an acre. Today, the state produces a large assortment of both muscadine and vinifera varieties of grapes.  Our state is also the 10th largest producer of wine and grapes in the nation.
