While you might associate Richard Childress with NASCAR, it’s time to associate him with fine-wine. Fulfilling a lifetime dream, he opened Chlidress Vineyards in Lexington in 2004.
Today, Childress Vineyards features 27 acres of vineyards and 11 varieties. Visitors can go on general or group tours. Tastings occur daily. You can choose the cellar select tasting for $12 a person for off-dry wines. Or treat your palette to the barrel deluxe tasting for $15 a person to try dry and full bodied wines. Dine at the Bistro and stay at nearby accommodations.
Childress Vineyards offers a true North Carolina wine experience. Between tours, tastings, and a good wine buzz…plan your weekend trip today!
