Treat Yourself to Tours and Tastings!
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 create a wine trail and now it has expanded to become the JoCo Beer, Wine, and Shine Trail, adding four breweries and two distilleries.
You can tour local vineyards and enjoy wine tastings, determine which is your favorite craft beer at one of four breweries, sip on rum or learn about the legacy of five generations of moonshiners. Complete four stops for a free gift from the Visitors Bureau, and eight stops for a free gift from the partner of your choice.
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.
