Winemakers in the High Country know the value of their grapes. The soil here mimics the most desirable vineyards in areas such as Napa, California, and Europe. Local wines which carry the Appellation of Origin of the Appalachian High Country American Viticulture Area, or AVA, meet the requirement that 85% or more of the wine comes from grapes grown within the boundaries of this AVA.
