Rayson Winery & Vineyards
This long-standing winery, formerly Hutton Vineyards, will reopen in 2022 as Rayson Winery & Vineyards. JW & Kristen Ray, owners of JOLO Winery in Pilot Mountain, have purchased the winery and its 45 acres of vineyards.
Upon reopening, Rayson will feature a new, upscale European tasting room serving French-style single varietal wines. The first vintage will be 2021 and feature Cabernet Franc, Chambourcin, Merlot and Sangiovese red wines, and Chardonnay and Viognier white wines.
Two more whites -- Sauvignon Blanc and Vidal Blanc -- will be added in future growing seasons.
The winery is part of the Surry County Wine Trail. For wine trail info, click here.
