Cider, Wine & Dine Weekend
Held each year in April, is the annual Cider, Wine & Dine Weekend. Henderson County wineries and cideries partner together to create a signature weekend surrounded by all things cider, wine, and food! It is an action-packed weekend filled with artisan hard cider, award-winning wines, new releases, grand openings, a variety of food, educational programs, live music, facility tours, friendly faces, and much more.
Henderson County’s rich history in agriculture and wonderful climate makes the area ideal for the growing of a variety of apples and grapes. Henderson County is home to North Carolina’s newest wine country, the Crest of the Blue Ridge American Viticulture Area (AVA). Area wineries produce classic wines from European vinifera grapes and French-American hybrid grapes, as well as sweeter wines crafted from grapes native to North Carolina.
