RayLen Vineyards
& Winery

If a relaxing few hours among the vines, sipping great wines sounds enticing, plan your next adventure to RayLen Vineyards and Winery, a founding member of the Yadkin Valley Appellation. Come wrap your senses around the latest creations from Steve Shepard, North Carolina’s premier winemaker.

Conveniently accessed off Interstate 40, the vineyards’ Brixx Lane leads through acres of European varietals, with grapes languidly basking on sun soaked slopes of gently rolling terroir. Move slowly past cutting edge solar installations, silently feeding eco-friendly sun power into the grid, and enjoy the view of our irrigation lake, fed by artesian springs.

Rounding the bend, catch sight first of the party pavilion, then the cupola atop RayLen’s tasting room. No wine snobs here. . .  just our trained friendly staff looking forward to exploring your new or seasoned taste preferences with you. Once you’ve found your favorite, consider taking a tour, then grab a rocking chair or lounge in comfort listening to the quiet of a winery view as old as time.

From these matured to perfection vines come thousands of cases of award winning Reds, Whites, Sparkling and Port-style Dessert Wines for a crowning addition to your celebrations large and small.

About
Our
Vineyard

Vineyard

An easy drive from Charlotte, Winston-Salem and the Research Triangle, RayLen Vineyards & Winery is your neighborhood winery.

For that last minute impulse visit, RayLen is open daily. If listening to the quiet is not your thing, then liven it up a bit, by attending some of our many events. Bring a lawn chair and a friend or two, enjoy music, your own picnic or our appetizer selections. Some events are themed, like Mardi Gras, some offer food truck fare, check our calendar and choose a favorite.

Or work with us to create your own calendar of special events including weddings, corporate events, a fun day out, and personal milestone celebrations.
