Founded in 1999 by Brothers Charlie and Ed Shelton, Shelton Vineyards was envisioned as a new agricultural resource for an area once dependent on tobacco farming. Located in the heart of North Carolina's Yadkin Valley, Shelton Vineyards is 180 degrees from any winery you will find on the West Coast. The distinctive characteristics of Shelton wine come from the unique soil and climate of the Yadkin Valley. This helps give Shelton wine an inimitable taste that holds its own against any wine from any area in the world. We invite you to visit us, try our wine and see if you agree that our wine is as unique as the area we are in.

We took the winery tour with an excellent guide . He explained the entire winery operation and then presented the wines for our tasting. Besides being knowledgeable he had a sense of humor. Naturally I found some favorites and joined their wine club to make sure I can get my favorites. Great time! Bought some wine to enjoy while sitting... More

We were staying in Dobson for a night and this was a must visit for us. This winery is very scenic! We started out with a tasting of their wines, which includes a souvenir wine glass. Their wines are really good, enough for us to buy a case to take home and savor later in as well. We also had... More

Shelton Vineyards is set in a beautiful setting. The Sauvignon Blanc smooth like a Riesling. The Harvest Red is little bold. The Harvest White is a perfect baby Riesling--this one is must. The Yadkin Valley Riesling, like biting into a ripe peat and apple-perfect. The Salem Fork Blush- oh my that is good wine. The Dry Rose reminds me a... More

Love their Sauvignon Blanc - it is a great value. They have a good unoaked chard too. And are experimenting with a Rose. Outside seating is very nice - you can get a bottle and bring it out. Buy a bottle - as they are about the cost of 2 glasses ! And if you a buy a case (... More

Heading home to Ohio from Hilton Head, Shelton Vineyard is exactly half way. We drove the 6 hours and got a room at the Dobson Hampton Inn. We had a reservation for Reserved wine tasting and it was very, VERY good! It was expensive but there were generous servings of 6 different wines. We knew nothing about tasting wine and... More

We decided to spend the afternoon of Valentine's Day by going to Shelton's Vineyards. It was a relatively long drive just for an afternoon visit but turned out to be well worth it. We had a late lunch in the Harvest Grill first. We were told that the enclosed outside patio was having an issue with flies so we decided... More
