About The Catawba Valley Wine Trail

The Catawba Valley is located along the Catawba River between the foothills of the Blue Ridge and the South Mountains near Morganton, North Carolina.

The Catawba Valley Wine Trail features 5 wineries - all located within minutes of Interstate 40 between Exit 90 and Exit 112. We are located only 45 minutes east of Asheville, NC and 45 minutes west of Statesville, NC.

Each winery along our Wine Trail offers wine tastings and tours while providing unique surroundings for spending time and enjoying a picnic or share a bottle of wine with friends.

You'll find a variety of wine styles along the Catawba Valley Wine Trail. From sweet Waldensian Wines made in the tradition of the Valdese area’s original Italian settlers to the dry, award-winning Bordeaux-style wines from South Creek Winery.

Enjoy magnificent views of the South Mountains from Silver Fork Winery and have fun with an unpretentious wine tasting at Belle Nicho Winery. Of course, don't forget to check out the latest solar power technology in use at Lake James Cellars, an award winning winery powered by the sun.
