Two • Five • Nine celebrates the blending of two families, five children, and nine grandchildren. Grown throughout the Madiran in southwestern France, and the ‘national’ grape varietal in Uruguay… Tannat is a rising star in the new wine world…at home at Shelton Vineyards in the Yadkin Valley of North Carolina.

Located in the Yadkin Valley American Viticultural Area, the vineyard shares a similar climate and growing season to that of some of the best wine growing regions in Europe. The vineyard is one of the largest on the East Coast.

Tannat is characterized by its firm, tannic structure with raspberry aromas and the ability to age well. This Tannat can be enjoyed now or cellared for years to come as it will continue to get better with age.

The Winery
The winery is a gravity flow facility. The gravity flow system eliminates the need to pump the product from one step to the next. The more times the product is pumped, the more chances that contaminants will find their way into the final product. Like all decisions made on the production of our wines at Shelton Vineyards, this choice was grounded in the desire to create the highest quality wines.

Shelton Vineyards uses a combination of French, American and Hungarian oak barrels. Oak barrels give flavor and structure to the wine; that is, they enhance the wine as a spice enhances fine food. The winemaker’s skill and experience will determine the manner in which barrel aging is employed.
