North Carolina does actually make wine. From the VisitNC.com website:
As well as being the home of America’s first grape, North Carolina is the only place in the world where every major type of grape is grown. There’s nothing quite like tasting wine where it was made. Tour through the vineyards where flavors swirl around you. Sample something new in the tasting room. Or try some of the most celebrated wines in the country at one of our festivals. With more than 400 vineyards and 100 wineries across the state, you can map your way through our wine trail and savor every stop.
Impressive. I’m sure someday someone somewhere will even claim something from there tastes good too. It’s just a matter of time.
