Vineyards of North Carolina

Now that the Takata airbag is fixed on passenger side, my wife and I could finally take a road trip. Perfect timing, because MBCA was having a get together at Shelton Vineyard in North Carolina.

Who knew that North Carolina had over 400 vineyards in the state? We started at Raffaldini Winery and met a couple of folks with beautiful SL's from the 1960's. Raffaldini specializes in Italian reds (my favorite) and, other than the half mile of gravel driveway, is a beautiful location.

We also hit Shelton Vineyards and Cellar 4201, driving around the curvy but well-paved back roads of Yadkin Valley. Great place to test out the cornering, acceleration and brakes.

Check out some pics of great classic MB's in my album.
