Whether you are wanting to sip wine, watch birds or 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 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.

Sanders Ridge has been in the Shore family for over 163 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.

In the late 90's, after 40 straight tobacco crops along with corn, soybeans, cattle, and timber, Neil conceded that the conventional farming of his day would not offer his children and their families the livelihood that it had once afforded him. He researched alternative cash crops (grapes and organic vegetables) in hopes of preserving the land and all of the natural resources it supports (including his children and grand children!) for years to come...

Between 1999 and 2001, he laid the groundwork and established the vineyard for the Sanders Ridge Vineyard and Winery. In December 2005, he began producing USDA certified organic vegetables, herbs, and cut flowers at the Farm at Sanders Ridge and in June of 2009 he opened the Winery & Restaurant - in a rustic and towering post and beam structure built from lumber and stone he harvested right off the farm.

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 and Restaurant for a taste of a simpler time and place.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
