But its wines aren’t the only award winners on the farm, as several of the vineyard’s llamas have taken home top prizes at local and national levels. In fact, several of the award-winning wines are named after the prized llamas such as the In a Heartbeat red blend and Red Rita Rose.

The vineyard and tasting room sits in the heart of the Yadkin Valley Appellation and boasts spectacular views of Pilot Mountain. Visitors in the spring and summer can book llama treks for a two-mile hike on the 77-acre property for an even better idea of the mountain and the vineyard.
