MISTY CREEK IS PERMANENTLY CLOSED AS OF AUGUST 14, 2021
THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATRONAGE SINCE 2009
If you have any questions for the Nichols Family please email email@example.com
Misty Creek is located on a 60 acre farm in the gently rolling area of North Carolina known as the Piedmont and just west of Winston-Salem, all within the bounds of the Yadkin Valley American Viticultural Area (AVA), an area specifically recognized by the federal government for producing unique and wonderful wines. We have 14 acres of vineyards, and our award winning varietal wines include Chardonnay, Traminette, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, and Chambourcin. We also have some yummy sweet wines, including Misty Rose, Chamberry, Rhapsody in Blueberry and Blackberry Cobbler, all made with real sugar and real fruit extracts. Nothing artificial! Except for our stainless steel fermented Chardonnay, all of our wines are gently aged in Hungarian oak.
Misty Creek is family-owned by my Mom Marge, my wife Kathy and me. It’s a wonderful hodgepodge of Native American artifacts and pioneer history, with some civil war and perhaps even some Revolutionary War mixed in. I feel especially close to this land for a variety of reasons. Although I was not born here, my ancestors started the first Quaker church in Surry County, and the Battle of Guilford Courthouse during the revolutionary war was fought on my great-great-great grandfather’s farm in adjoining Guilford County. As Quakers they did not participate in the battle, but brought wounded patriot and British soldiers alike into their home to deal with their wounds. To read more of our history, click here.

Saturday is our event day, and we have some wild and crazy times with rock bands, cooking events, our popular Red Wine & Ribs event, Rottweiler adoptions, farm bazaars, craft nights and more. In the summer, customers spread out over our grounds to enjoy their picnics and our great wines, and our lake side pavilion is a favorite place to relax and enjoy the smells of fresh cut grass.
During tastings, you’ll enjoy a panoramic view of our farm, and maybe later venture out for a self-guided tour of our vineyards. We are child, family and dog friendly, and on a given Saturday you’ll find a happy mix of pups, kids and folks who enjoy good wine. If it's winter, you can warm yourself in front of our two lodge-style fireplaces. When you do, by the way, make sure you sit in my great-grandmother’s Indiana Pedestal Oak rockers, a matching pair she purchased for 75 cents in 1873.
Thank you so much for coming to visit our web page, and you have our personal invitation to stop by and visit us for an informative tasting and some good wine talk. Remember, it’s always 5 o’clock at Misty Creek! See you soon!
Misty Creek is a family-owned and operated vineyard established in 2001 by the Nichols family. The vineyard and tasting room are located in Mocksville, North Carolina in the Yadkin Valley. To read more about how we started and our history, visit us here!
