Travel along the Beer Wine and Shine Trail
Johnston County has quite the history of producing illegal spirits, a heritage today which lays claim to creating the NASCAR industry. In 2009, our award-winning wineries joined together to form the Muscadine Heritage Wine Trail and it has now expanded to become the JoCo Beer, Wine, and Shine Trail adding two breweries and one distillery. Visitors can tour local vineyards, find out more about making craft beer, and discover the legacy of five generations of moonshiners, in the community known as Broadslab.
Experience the trail along our rural roads past tobacco, cotton, and corn fields or stop at a local farmer's market, find one of our local BBQ restaurants, or shop for local products at area country stores. We suggest you make it a weekend visit and enjoy exploring more agricultural history here in the county with the Sip and Stay package.
