The Yadkin Valley, NC
East Coasters who’ve done Napa don’t need to veer to the West Coast for good sips. North Carolina’s Yadkin Valley is one of the most prominent wine regions on the East Coast (the state is also home to America’s first grape). While you can choose from 40 different vineyards in the area, focus on the dozen that stretch across the neighboring towns of Elkin, Pilot Mountain, Dobson, and Mount Airy, which was the inspiration for the town of Mayberry on “The Andy Griffith Show”.
