A Toast to the New Year

You can get mass produced, mass commercialized, massively boring food and drinks anywhere. In fact, that’s part of the problem. Too many places have lost their individuality, that special something that made them so unique and interesting. That’s why you’re spending time at the Valley River RV Resort; you want to experience the local. So what does the Great Smoky Mountains have to offer the discerning RVer when it comes to local libations?

Wine and Dine

If you’re at all into wine, you know that you simply cannot do better than spending some time at a local vineyard. If you’ve not yet gotten into wine, wineries are also a great place to get started in the hobby. If you’re interested in getting a taste of southern Appalachia, why not try out the Valley River Vineyard and Winery. Begun in 1997 in Andrews, NC it finally opened in 2006 and offers French hybrid and native grapes. You might also consider trying Nottely River Valley Vineyards. They offer “Old World Style, Hand-Crafted” wines like those found in Europe


While wine is a great thing, it isn’t everyone’s interest. That’s okay, you’ll probably enjoy spending some time at the local breweries. One such brewery is the Happy Trout Brewery Company based in Andrews, NC. They brew all their beer on premises and work strictly with small batches of 31 gallons at a time.

They’re always experimenting with their beers, ncluding hot peppers, sea salt, and cake batter! They’re also a full-service pizza restaurant and you can’t really go wrong with that.
