Our Story

Whether you are wanting to sip wine, watch birds, nature journal, sample freshly harvested vegetables, or just need a quiet change of pace and scenery - you'll find it here at Sanders Ridge, a Century Designated farm consisting of old growth forest (which the old timers still refer to as "The Big Woods"), marshland, creeks, lakes, and open fields.  We are located within the Yadkin Valley Wine Appellation just outside of the Yadkin County community of Boonville, NC (25 minutes west of Winston-Salem.).

 

Sanders Ridge has been in the Shore family for 170 years. Neil Shore, the great great grandson of John Benjamin Shore who settled the original 800 acres in 1847, is the fifth generation of Shore farmers to work the land on Sanders Ridge.

Neil and Mom Kate in pictured in the vineyard in 2004.  Kate is the family matriarch and the namesake of our sweet red wine - Sweet Kate. She raised four boys (Neil is the baby) while helping on the farm, working in a local factory, and as a waitress and pie maker at the local diner. She IS the sweetest woman in our world.

 

In December 2005, Neil began producing USDA certified organic vegetables, herbs, and cut flowers at the Farm at Sanders Ridge.

In June of 2009 he opened the winery in a rustic and towering post and beam structure built from lumber and stone he harvested right off the farm.  (See photos below)

 

Neil's goal has always been to make Sanders Ridge a place where folks can laugh, relax, and experience the farm and the special places within it.

He and his family invite you to visit the Winery for a taste of a simpler time and place.  (and if you are so inclined, to wander...)
