Appalachian Dracula was famously quoted as saying, "I never drink…moonshine." Teach the original Dracula a thing or two with today's deal: for $10, you get a wine tasting for two and a bottle of wine (up to a $24 value) at Moonrise Bay Vineyard, located in Knotts Island. This deal is valid Thursday through Sunday only.
Moonrise Bay Vineyard grows several award-winning varietals and serves them in a handsome green-roofed building flanked by rolling fields of vines. You and a friend will sip and savor four of Moonrise's palate-pleasing grapen goodnesses. The current roster includes the crisp and elegant fumé blanc, a chardonnay with light notes of citrus, pear, and eternity; the Boathouse Red Blend (an ambrosial amalgamation of merlot and cabernet sauvignon); and the First Flight White Muscadine Blend. After sampling the wares, choose a bottle of vino to take home.
Tastings also include a complimentary souvenir glass. And visitors are always welcome to a free tour of Moonrise's small but hospitable facilities, where Merlot Merlin, the vineyard's resident wizard, ferments grapes by leering at them.
Must be age 21 or older. Variety of wine is subject to availability.
