Jones von Drehele Vineyards and Winery
The Wine Business in NC
Diana and Chuck Jones and Ronnie and Raymond von Drehle are the owners of Jones von Drehle Vineyards and Winery (JvD). Diana and Ronnie are sisters. Founded in 2007 with the purchase of 65-acres of pasture and woodlands on the rising slope of the Blue Ridge at Roaring Gap, the 30 acres of vineyard was planted in 2009. JvD is an estate winery; the wines are produced only from the grapes grown at JvD. The wines have received over 300 international, national and regional awards and are proudly served or sold in over 250 locations across the state of NC.
Diana will talk about the NC wine industry, as well as, the ins and outs of the JvD site selection, vines, and wines. The talk will be topped off with a wine tasting featuring two “Petits”, Petit Manseng and Petit Verdot, a white and a red.
