Hanover State of Mind. Yadkin in a Glass.
Now from the soil and climate of the Yadkin valley comes a selection of wines that could be easily confused with the wine from the Rhone River Valley in France. Surprising? Not
when you compare the Yadkin Valley with the south of France and Michael and Amy Helton’s love for Old World wines.
Take all the time, care, and research necessary to make the best wine that can be made in an Old World style that is balanced with food. And that's exactly what Michael and Amy Helton have done. As unpretentious and inviting as the vineyard itself, they've created world-class wines that appeal to wine lovers from the connoisseur to the weekend novice.
Have a glass of wine from Hanover Park Vineyard and you will be astonished at how good a wine from North Carolina can be.
What People are Saying
It's hard to sum up in a few words how strongly we feel for all the folks and the wines at hanover. Starting out we would always drop by for the wine. Their wines are “top notch” and will compare to anyones. Yes we all have our favorites, Cabernet Franc or the 1897, but wines are something enjoyed on a personal level and what I like, may not be someones elses pick. However, they have a complete line of reds and whites and I’m sure even the hardest to please connoisseur would be happy they stopped by for a tasting.
But, now we go and sit just to meet friends or to make new ones. Without a doubt, hanover is “home”. Where else or at what other winery can you go to and sit with the owners, have a conversation with the wine maker, or joke with the staff and not feel as though you “have to buy something” before leaving. Amy and michael and their staff go out of their way to make sure everyone that walks through their door feels welcome and at home.
