Our wine tonight is the Grape Peach from Hilton Vineyards in Monroe, North Carolina.

90% Chardonel and 10% Peach, the sweet fruit wine is light and crisp with citrus and light peach on the nose and ripe peach on the tongue.

Hilton Vineyards has a vineyard on family land in the neighboring county, which for years was a dry county. That led to the opening of their winery downtown Monroe. Hilton stays open late on weekend nights and offers the atmosphere of a friendly neighborhood tavern.
