Paddle Dinner: Wine Maker’s Dinner
Known for its importance as a refuge for animals and plants, and for the well being of humans that are nature deprived, the Haw River Valley is also an important agricultural region in the Piedmont of North Carolina. In recent years, grapes have begun taking the place of tobacco as a crop. The unique soils and climate of the Valley are proving to be a world-class region for growing grapes, and a number of award-winning artisan wineries and vineyards are located near the Haw River.
Recognizing the health benefits of wine and getting outdoors on the river, The Haw River Canoe & Kayak Company has partnered with the Saxapahaw General Store and the Grove Vineyard & Winery to offer a unique experience, a Wine Maker’s Paddle Dinner. The river trip, enjoyed by paddlers of all skill levels, is a 2-3 hour scenic canoe and/or kayak trip with a naturalist. Following the trip, guests sit down to a dinner with wine.
Fee: $75 per person with the canoe/kayak provided, $80 per person with your own boat.
*The fee includes a dinner with wine.
