Overview
More
Until Joe and Joyce Neely purchased the property, RayLen Vineyards & Winery functioned as a dairy farm for nearly a century. Today, the rolling hills and winding drive romance our guests as they drive through 35,000 European-varietal grape vines. The distinctive cupola roof top of RayLen Vineyards & Winery is a beacon for the southern portion of the Yadkin Valley Appellation. Travelers from the highway and wanderers from the surrounding country roads are drawn to the tasting room to discover a new experience. Loyal customers return for the lush vista and a reliable favorite of vintner Steve Shepard's award-winning wines.

RayLen was simply gorgeous. The outdoor patio is well worth scheduling some time to sit out and enjoy your wine. It's a gorgeous view. Our tasting guide was helpful and full of life and energy. He made it a wonderful experience.

Ray Len is set in a countryside of rolling hills and scenic vistas. Recently attended a business function where delicious raylen wines were served by excellent staff. Previous visits for wine tasting were excellent as well.

No, but further down the road, Mocksville has some good places. There's restaurant 101, Zekos, Shikis and more! My friends and I sometimes stop at Panera in Clemmons, and bring it to Raylen.
