Merry Berry – Baker Buffalo Creek Vineyard

Our Holiday wine tonight is the Merry Berry from Baker Buffalo Creek Vineyard.

A tart cranberry blend produced seasonally just for the Holidays. Beautiful color and a robust aroma make this North Carolina wine perfect for a family get-together.

In case you’ve yet to visit Baker Buffalo Creek Vineyard in the small farming community of Fallston, just outside of Shelby, put this one on your list. The vineyard and winery property operated as the Baker family dairy farm for 100+ years. The red barn is featured in current Hillshire Farms commercials. Our friend Will snapped the first picture below and I snapped the second of the old farmhouse which lies toward the back of the property.

Get by quickly to pick up your own bottle of this refreshing seasonal cranberry wine so you too can sip their fine wine and explore the beautiful farm.
