Salisbury's Oldest Winery: Old Stone Winery
OUR ROAD TO 100 NORTH CAROLINA WINERIES …
Old Stone Winery is located in Salisbury, North Carolina.
This urban-style winery was founded in 2001 and later sold to Darin and Naomi Griffin in 2009. Having both served in the military and then entering the workforce, they decided it was time to try something new and enter the winery business. With 130 acres of Muscadine grapes, Old Stone also sources its grapes locally and produces both dry and sweet wines.
Not being a fan of sweet or Muscadine wines, we opted for the dry-wine option on the tasting menu. We decided to share a tasting and sampled the following: Chardonnay, Lucky (dry white blend of Pinot Gris, Chardonnay and Viognier), Fling (Rosé wine blend of white Merlot and Cabernet), Risque Red, Pomegranate Wine (100 percent all natural pomegranate).
In addition to the tasting bar, Old Stone also features two tank rooms, an outdoor pavilion and gift shop featuring local artisan chocolates and homemade jellies and cheeses.
Triangle Around Town's top 🍷 choice: Our favorite of the day was the Pomegranate wine. This wine started out quite tart and softened with each sip. It was different than what our normal tastes are which is one reason we love tasting an array of styles of wine.
Wine tastings start at $5 for 5 wines and includes a souvenir glass .
