Neuse River Winery Opens

Our local vintners, Glen and Rolayne Schwendy, announced the opening of their winery, Neuse River Winery, here in Oriental last week. Their vineyard is open Thursday through Saturday from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

They offer wine tastings and tours as well as a gift shop where they sell, among other things, memento stemware. Most of their available wines are made from fruits grown on their property and they are all fun to sample.

The Neuse River Winery is within a short drive or an easy bicycle ride from our hotel here in Oriental. Guests of our hotel may use our courtesy bicycles.

Also on offer this weekend is a book signing and wine tasting at Nautical Wheelers, one of our boutique gift shops that features local artisans as well as a wide assortment of other gifts and nautical wear. Nautical Wheelers is only a few short blocks from our Oriental, NC hotel.

This is a great weekend to visit Oriental, North Carolina. Come on down!
