NC Blogger Network members, you’re invited to the exclusive North Carolina Wine Month Kickoff Event!
Did You Know?
Did you know that there are over 180 wineries throughout the state of North Carolina? Each year, the state of North Carolina recognizes September as North Carolina Wine and Grape Month. It’s a time for wineries and other businesses to host events recognizing their dedication and celebrating the wonderful variety of North Carolina Wine!
Official North Carolina Wine Month Kickoff Event
This year marks the first year we are holding an official kickoff event to get the celebrations started. Media guests from all around the state are being invited to this event to help spread the news and generate interest throughout the state. Best of all the Governor will be at the North Carolina Wine Month Kickoff Event!
The main tasting event will be a speed tasting session. Over the course of an hour, you’ll be tasting wine from 12 of the featured wineries. We highly recommend following the 4 ‘S’ method of tasting (Swirl, Smell, Sip & Spit) as you’ll be tasting several wines in a short time frame. For more information and other tips, head to the NC Wine Month Kickoff Page.
At the end of the event, there will be time for an open session where you can meet the wineries and gather more information. The hope is that you will be loaded with enough details and ideas to feature North Carolina Wineries throughout the month of September and beyond.
