Yadkin wine region in NC

I've recently learned of the Yadkin wine region in North Carolina which is a short enough drive for my wife and me to take a day trip visit. Has anyone visited any wineries/vineyards in this region? I think we're going to plan a trip for the spring and I'm looking for any comments and suggetions. thanks, brian

FWIW, The winter issue of "The Wine Report" (an Atlanta/Birmingham/Charlotte area tabloid) features full reviews of the Yadkin region's wines. If you can't find a copy (the cover story is "50 Forbidden Wines"), try their website:

Bryan,
If you get a chance ... DEFINITELY get by Shelton Vineyards.

They have invested several million dollars here ... new french oak barrels .. an outstanding winemaker.
Close your eyes ... taste their cabernet franc and let me know if you think this wine was made in NC !!
Their vines are still young and in the very beginning they were buying juice but now are doing their own. I think you will be pleasantly surprised.
