Birthplace of the Yadkin Valley AVA
Many people might not be aware that the Yadkin Valley American Viticultural Area (AVA) was born right here in Surry County. Charlie and Ed Shelton of Shelton Vineyards in Dobson oversaw the effort to get the Yadkin Valley its official status as a federally-recognized American Viticultural Area in 2003. It was North Carolina's first AVA.
