Asheville, NC. North Carolina's newest wine destination “Saint Paul Mountain Vineyard” is on the map thanks to signs from Asheville SIGNARAMA.
Saint Paul Mountain Vineyard opened its doors to the public for the first time in August 2012. Since then they have seen a growing list of customers and visitors eager to sample their locally grown wines. In their first year, they have already won Silver and Bronze medals for several of their wines at the State Fair.
The vineyard and winery is the effort of Alan and Beth Ward, who wanted to see their family lands, return to a sustainable family farm. The results is the launch of their boutique winery, which is focused on carefully selecting the grape varietals to grow here in Western North Carolina, in order to produce a wonderful East Coast wine.
To achieve this, they spent years researching and selecting good root stock, and planting them on the family land. The land has been in their family for nearly ten generations and was originally a land grant from Mary, Queen of Scots. They have 14 varieties of wine grape vines, growing on 15 acres at elevations of 2,300 and 3,000 feet. Working with local artisans and experts from Cornell University and NC Agriculture they carefully evaluated each varietal in order to grow the best grapes they can. They also have partnered with a wonderful wine maker in Yadkinville, NC and together they are producing award winning products. Their most popular wine, the St Paul Chardonnay, won the Silver Medal at the State Fair. The Chardonnay has aromas of apple, pineapple and apricot, and a round crisp finish of lemon and pear.
They are working to also add a hard cider and an apple wine, all sourced form their local orchards, Their focus on the local community does not stop with locally grown produce. They have worked with local artisans and businesses, and will continue to do so in supporting their local community. One of the local businesses working with Saint Paul is Asheville SIGNARAMA, who have provided all of their signs. “Working with Ed and the Asheville SIGNANARMA team has created a wonderful relationship”
Saint Paul Mountain Vineyard and Winery's quality products are a testimony to the vision of Alan and Beth Ward. Their wines may be purchased at their winery and tasting room on Chestnut Gap Road, or online at www.saintpaulmountainvineyards.com
