You could drive right by this winery in the charming North Carolina countryside and not notice it was there.
And it’s actually more than just a winery, you’ll also find fruit ciders, beer-like ciders with hops added, and sours.
The unique techniques used at Botanist & Barrel utilize fruit at the peak of the season and process it minimally so that it needs no extra additives. The sugar is fermented completely away, resulting in a crisp, not too sweet, refreshing brew.
It’s a fun drive to this farmhouse winery that sits on an organic blueberry farm. And since they are always experimenting with different methods of brewing, chances are there will be something new every time you go back.

35 minutes northeast of Roxboro in the quaint town of Clarksville, VA, is a vineyard owned by the Powell sisters, Beth, Susan, and Kay. They offer wine tastings every Saturday from 10 to 5.
A once thriving tobacco farm, the three sisters decided to turn the farm into a vineyard and winery that would last for generations.
Growing up, the three sisters loved Muscadine and Scuppernong grapes so much they would eat them until their lips were sore. Hence, they decided to grow these two grapes in their vineyard to turn into wine.
When one of the sisters, Beth Graham, was a teenager, she started brewing alcohol from a kit her mother gave her. Eventually, she and her husband took up brewing together and were producing enough wine to sell to the public.
The farm currently sells four different wines, Muscadine, Scuppernong, Blackberry, and Apple. (Scuppernong is a variety of the Muscadine grape.)
