SFA Tackles “Wine in the South”

21 Oct

Don’t laugh, folks — Dixie is producing some serious vino these days.

The Southern Foodways Alliance has always done a terrific job with its Oral History projects. We really enjoyed their take on Florida’s Forgotten Coast. In fact, that piece inspired us to plan out a long weekend in Apalachicola. Can’t wait — we’re blasting off soon!

Their “Wine in the South” study covers NC, GA and my home state of Virginia. The stories and photos brought back some wonderful memories of Fall day trips to beautiful places like Barboursville, Oakencroft, and Monticello. They even include Duplin Winery in Eastern NC and, of course, wines made at the amazing Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC — another former DD home base. Yup, we get around!
