Benjamin Vineyards is a family owned and operated vineyard located in the Haw River Valley AVA in Piedmont North Carolina. Situated outside the picturesque town of Saxapahaw along the Haw River, the sandy loam soil of our vineyard is ideal for growing Muscadine grapes– including Scuppernong, the nation’s first cultivated wine grape– as well as viniferous French wine grapes and French-American hybrid wine grapes. We are a vineyard only; we are not a winery.
