North Carolina is home to over 100 wineries. The Tobacco Road Haw River Wine Trail Tour explores three of the best artisan wineries along the 50-mile wine trail. This short scenic drive winds through the heart of rural North Carolina, following the path of the Haw River. Located between Durham and Greensboro, the close proximity to NC’s Triangle and Triad area make this a wonderful, convenient way to spend a leisurely day of wine tasting and beautiful countryside sightseeing.
Sit back, relax and enjoy the experience. Your Haw River Wine tour includes:
- Fun and informative wine tastings at three wineries. Let us teach you the “technique” of wine tasting. We will discuss the history of our state’s fast growing wine industry, and the attraction of North Carolina’s wines.
- A delicious lunch in North Carolina’s wine country (inform us of special dietary needs).
- A chauffeured ride through our wine country, along North Carolina’s scenic highways and back roads.
