Register Your Winery

Be sure to register your winery (or planned winery) with the North Carolina wine office.  Please fill out the Winery Form with contact information and details about your winery.  Sign and return the completed Winery Form via fax to 919-733-8582 or by mail to: North Carolina Wine, 4324 Mail Service Center, Raleigh, NC 27699.

If your winery is under construction, please still fill out the form and keep us updated on your progress and future opening date.  Also, please let us know whenever any of your information changes.  Once your Winery Form has been received, you will be registered to receive industry news from the council.

To be eligible for inclusion on the map and visitncwine.com, your winery must meet the following qualifications:

    • Use at least 5 percent of North Carolina grapes, fruit or juice in your total wine production
    • Have a tasting room at your winery
    • Be open to the public

Once your winery meets all of the qualifications, your winery will be eligible for all marketing materials. Be sure to also see the other Marketing Tools available for wineries.
