McRitchie Winery is located in the beautiful foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. We are second generation winemakers from Oregon and California producing dry European style table wines using estate and sourced grapes from the best growers in North Carolina's Yadkin Valley. We work carefully with our growers and are deeply grateful to them for the hard work that goes into producing such lovely fruit.

Our goal is to provide a serene, relaxing environment for you to enjoy our wines and experience a slice of Yadkin Valley heaven.

Cheers!

All the wines we tasted were excellent and all very different. The owners were also very pleasant. We had a very good experience and I am most tempted to join their wine club.

We had a wonderful guided wine tasting with the wine maker. Although we had visited several times before, this personalized visit really helped us to understand the "why" behind McRitchie wines. We could not have been more pleased with the experience and the value. We can't wait to go back with our family and share this marvelous experience!

Area was beautiful.. Love the beautiful patio made of stone. Furniture very uncomfortable.. Was no food. That would be a plus. If had a little soft music in background would be a plus. But all in all will be back

The site and setting are superb (relaxing and cozy). The wine selections for sampling are limited. That said, the wines and ciders sampled were all good, especially the ciders. The service was excellent. There are some crackers included with a wine tasting.
