A wonderful example of the incredible wines that North Carolina is producing, Piccione Vineyards takes visitors on a tasting trip to Italy without having to leave NC soil.
Medaloni Cellars Oaked Viognier 2016 is more of a rich Viognier with sweet rose and apricot notes. Smooth vanilla lingers on the palate due to the time in young barrels.
Starrlight Mead's Traditional Semi-Sweet Mead is an incredibly smooth honey wine with a lingering floral, honey finish.
Learning about all things wine, specifically in the Carolinas, quickly became a passion for us. With each wine we taste, winery we explore, and winemaker or industry leader we talk with, that passion becomes even more deeply embedded in our lives. We have an unquenchable thirst for the history, stories, and experiences that surround wine. Because of this, we felt incredibly honored to attend the inaugural NC Wine Bloggers Summit hosted at Hanover Park by the NC Wine Guys.
We were thrilled to have been invited by Joey Medaloni to visit Medaloni Cellars for a behind-the-scenes tasting.
