WoodMill Winery

Tuesday, June 6, 2006

Winemaking is a growing industry in North Carolina, in more ways than one. Recently Larry Cagle, Jr. opened WoodMill Winery. It’s located at 1350 WoodMill Winery Lane, off John Beam Road in Western Lincoln County. There are 50 acres in the vineyard, Cagle said, and 5 1/2 of those have vines producing grapes. Three wines are being previewed there — red muscadine, golden scuppernong and blueberry. The first two are being grown at WoodMill Winery. The blueberry is being grown at Helms Christmas Tree Farm in Lincoln County. The winery and tasting room are open from 1 to 6 p.m. Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays, and from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturdays. For directions you can check the web site www.woodmillwinery.com or you can call 704-276-9911. Additional amenities include a banquet room with seating for 250, a bride’s reception room and a conference room available to the public for special events.
