This past mothers day my mom took a drive out from Myrtle Beach to visit my sister in Greensboro NC where she is going to school. My sister made reservations at Grove Winery and Vineyard for a tasting and tour and this is their experience.
By: Lauren PereiraGrove Winery and Vineyards in Haw River Vally, North Carolina is located conveniently northeast of the city of Greensboro. The Vineyard is off the beaten trail, but not difficult to locate. The vineyard serves as a great get-a-way with the winery nestled between the vineyard and a large pond with a deck to overlook the water. The wine is all harvested and cultivated on the premises and is sold locally as well as shipped internationally. I easily found the information for this exceptional vino haven on the internet and was pleased to hear they had a special mothers day wine tasting. The tasting included a choice between a sweet menu or a dry menu. Each menu included three wines which were each carefully paired with a hand-made chocolate truffle crafted by Greensboro pastry chef, Julie Watson. Although this pairing was a special mothers day event, Grove has many different events on their schedule, check it out today! www.grovewinery.com
