Parker-Binns Vineyard

October 23rd

 
Parker-Binns Vineyard will be our gracious host for this 1st annual event. Polk County, North Carolina had a rich history of growing and selling grapes in the late 1800’s. Now with the area having over 20 vineyards and 3 wineries, we knew this was the place to begin. And begin we did…clearing the trees and thickets, preparing the soil and planting over 4000 grape vines. Although we were familiar with this, we made an outstanding discovery…we’re 31 years older (ouch!) and yet another adventure begins!!! After only a couple of years of retirement, we were bored and needed inspiration. With our background in the food and beverage industry, we decided that we wanted to be part of the emerging East Coast wine industry. We searched up and down the region and finally found what we felt was the perfect parcel, 40 acres in the Tryon Foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
  • Registration Includes a bottle of wine for ultra runners and a glass of wine post race for the 5k runners! 
  • Camping is offered for both Friday and Saturday night with a checkout of 10am on Sunday
  • Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner are available through the vineyard and our local food trucks!
