Who Needs Napa? 🍇 Stone Ashe Vineyards

The Stone Ashe site was discovered on a granite, rocky, steep slope mountainside that was described as 'unsuitable for agricultural development' in western North Carolina. The grapevines responded to changes in elevation, slope, sun exposure, and weather patterns. These attributes persist into the fruit, yielding a balanced crop to produce layered and dense flavor profiles. This granite, rocky slope is the basis that forms the name: Stone Ashe Vineyard. The soil series is ashe and coupled with the steep slope is “stony ashe" soil.

This place is absolutely breathtaking.  Tina went above and beyond in the decor. The rolling hills are stunning with an estate vineyard similar to those of the regions of France.

Stone Ashe Vineyard meets at the intersection of terroir and wine heritage.  The new production facility is being built as I type this and Tina was kind enough to give us a tour.

Their Sauvignon Blanc is some of the best I have ever had, a bright and acidic white with a mineral finish. I purchased several bottles to bring home with me.
