Unique opportunity to own Westbend Vineyards, the first vinifera vineyard ever established in the state of North Carolina. Little did Jack Kroustalis know he would be making history by planting the Yadkin Valley's first vinifera grapevines over 40 years ago. He began planting vinifera varieties that are used to produce fine California and French wines. Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Riesling, Merlot, and Sauvignon Blanc are now thriving along the banks of the Yadkin due to this pioneering vineyard.

Art shows, car shows, concerts, private parties and other special events have been commonplace and drawn large crowds. The location of the property, just fifteen minutes from Winston Salem and 40 minutes to Piedmont Triad International Airport makes it ideal. This area’s grape growing and wine making industry has grown significantly over the past decade and would not have been possible without the vision of Mr. Kroustalis and Westbend. This pioneering winery was instrumental in....
