The Remote Winery Near Charlotte That's Picture Perfect For A Day Trip
With the holidays right around the corner, many of us are making plans to get together with friends and family to celebrate the season. This year, instead of the regular dinner out, plan a day trip to one of our favorite vineyards – Childress Vineyards! It will be one of the most unique holiday experiences you’ve had with friends and family.
Childress Vineyards was opened in 2004 in Lexington, North Carolina by one of NASCAR's greatest drivers, Richard Childress.
Located just an hour from Charlotte, a visit to Childress Vineyards is a wonderful experience at anytime throughout the year.
Currently decorated for Christmas, Childress Vineyards offers a cozy, warm atmosphere to sip your favorite wines and get in the holiday spirit.
When you walk through the front doors, you'll immediately feel at home and be welcomed by an array of red and green Christmas decorations, wreaths, and lights.
Sit in the tasting room and enjoy one of the Vineyard's delicious, hand crafted wines and a bite to eat while you catch up.
The menu at Childress Vineyards consists of cheese and charcuterie boards, various dips and spreads, and a few main courses for those who'd like to have a full meal.
New seasonal desserts are also on the menu, like this Pumpkin Spice Cake Trifle. Yum!
Any given day, there may be live entertainment for your listening pleasure in the tasting room.
And these Richard Childress gift baskets are the perfect holiday gift for the wine lovers in your life!
If you want to appreciate the view outdoors, you can sit in a heated dining room, enjoying your wine while gazing out at the acres of lovely land around you.
The views are absolutely breathtaking and visitors especially enjoy catching the sunset here.
If you are looking to plan a special event for the holidays, why not book Childress Vineyard's private dining room in the wine cellar? It's a truly stunning venue!
It will set the perfect mood for your special dinner and celebration.
Sometimes there is nothing better than getting out of the city for a while to enjoy the peaceful countryside.
If you feel like you need a break, Childress Vineyards is the perfect day trip getaway this season.
Address: 1000 Childress Vineyards Rd., Lexington, NC 27295
