Founded in 1999, Shelton Vineyards is the largest family owned estate winery in North Carolina. We are only a short drive from Charlotte, located in the heart of the Yadkin Valley AVA in Dobson, NC. We are near Mt. Airy, NC, otherwise known as Mayberry RFD. Open every day, we offer tours, tastings, dining, lodging, beautiful picnic grounds and walking trails. To tempt your palate we have the Harvest Grill, our award winning restaurant, known for its sophisticated southern comfort food. We also have a four time award winning Hampton Inn & Suites nearby that offers a free shuttle service to the vineyard and restaurants. It is the only hotel in the Hampton chain that offers a wine bar. With all the amenities available, we have a Special Events Coordinator to assist you in planning your next corporate retreat, reunion, engagement party or event you dream up. Come and enjoy the best of the Yadkin Valley at Shelton Vineyards!
