Your adventure in wine and beer begins in our small inn and town located in the countryside of Charlotte.  1817: Jefferson gives the state of North Carolina credit for producing "the first specimen of an exquisite wine," Scuppernong, and praised its "fine aroma, and chrystalline transparence." Writing to his agent in Marseilles about a recent shipment of Ledanon, a wine produced near the Pont du Gard, Jefferson declared it "excellent" and said it "recalled to my memory what I had drunk at your table 30. years ago, and I am as partial to it now as then." Elsewhere he described this vin de liqueur as having "something of the port character but higher flavored, more delicate, less rough."
