With Quincy Adams
Adams Vineyards, Wake County’s first vineyard and winery, was started in 2006. The vineyards and winery are located within 30 minutes of Raleigh. The Adams farm has been in the family since the 1700’s, where tobacco was originally grown. The late John Quincy Adams III, “Johnny” was the founder of Adams Vineyards and was the seventh generation to live and farm on the land. When John Quincy Adams III passed away, his family was forced to take over the farm without much prior knowledge of the winemaking process. The family run business is now owned and operated by Joyce Adams (aka – Ma Joyce), Johnny’s wife and Quincy Adams, their son (now the eighth generation farmer on the farm). This vineyard and winery specializes in Muscadine wines, which is native to this region of North Carolina. With much pride, the family has carried on Mr. Adams tradition by growing and selling award-winning wines. Now Quincy is offering to share his knowledge with visitors of Adams Vineyards.
