However, it is not a highly technical analysis or case study. Rather, it gives due respect to the historical significance of the vehicles impacted by the collapse and includes bits of geology, history, engineering, anecdotes, photos, comedy, lore and an infatuation with America's sports car.

Details: The Yadkin Valley AVA is now home to 44 wineries, the largest concentration in the state of North Carolina. The Yadkin Valley Wine Region was the first and remains the largest federally designated wine producing region, or appellation, in North Carolina. The four vineyards, which we will visit, produce Red Wines, such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Bordeaux or Meritage blends from the previous four grapes, Tempranillo, Syrah, and Chambourcin; White wines, such as Chardonnay, Viognier, Riesling, Petit Manseng and Seyval Blanc. Yadkin Valley wineries are small, with intimate wine tasting rooms providing more access to the winemakers and owners (often one and the same). This setting offers a great chance to try new wines and learn about the winemaking process.
