Childress Vineyards

Richard Childress is a NASCAR racing team owner. He also owns and operates one of the best wineries in North Carolina, Childress Vineyards. Lexington, NC is about a half an hour drive south of where we live. Today we took the little drive to see the place, have lunch, and taste a little wine. Key word “little,” because Gail and I are alcohol lightweights. We split a glass of wine and were both a bit loopy, then tired. But the wine was great! And the place was gorgeous! NC boasts about 100 wineries throughout the state, many award-winning. Little by little we will get to know at least our local ones.
