The winner of our giveaway along with a guest will visit the following on March 19.
Hinnant Family Vineyards - The Hinnant Family Vineyards staff invite you to take a gander at the oldest and largest Muscadine vineyard in the state, sprawling 100 acres. In the tasting room sip on double gold winning Electric Pelican, Bob’s wine of choice!
Double Barley Brewing - Taste a vast variety of craft beers such as crowd favorite, Wilma’s Wandering EyePA. The rustic with modern twist taproom is the perfect relaxed environment with lounge area, patron bar, founders table and high top tables. Make sure to try new appetizers with your cold beer. The outdoor beer garden is shaded by trees and sun sails. Imagine listening to music while kicking back in comfy chairs and chilling out with your friends. Makes you want to hang out all day!
Broadslab Distillery - Visitors will learn about Jeremy's process which involves locally grown and milled corn and hand-made oak barrels crafted by Jeremy himself and used to age the Broadslab Legacy product to perfection. Broadslab also produces a white rum, a spiced rum, a traditional moonshine which is the "real deal", and the newest product is an Apple Shine.
The cost of these tours are $89 per person. Welcome bags will be provided by the Johnston County Visitors Bureau. Space is limited, so call (919) 585-4498 today to reserve your spot.

Future tours will be held on May 21, October 1, and November 12 and one of my favorite breweries will be included in May. I personally love Deep River Brewing and buy a lot of their seasonals for my home collection. They will be on the tour for May 21 along with Broadslab again and Gregory Vineyards.
Gregory Vineyards - This picturesque 135-acre working farm showcases hills of planted vineyards, a winery, a distillery and a tasting room open seven days a week. Please visit Doctor Lane Gregory and his merry wine makers. Enjoy a taste of double gold winning Mary Elizabeth, double gold winning Lee Love or other award winning wines. Relax while sitting by the fireplace or grab a rocker on the front porch.
Deep River Brewing - Johnston County’s first legal brewery opened in April of 2013. Many of their beers include locally sourced vegetables, fruits, hops, and grain. The historic space they occupy in downtown Clayton was a cotton spinning mill and is brought back to life by utilizing old barn wood on the walls, mason jar lights, and whiskey barrels for tables. Deep River Brewing Company has become a staple for locals and is perfect for those looking to enjoy a fresh craft beer in a casual laid back atmosphere.
