Joyce Neely wants you to know that it’s no longer cool to be a wine snob.
She and her husband Joe started RayLen Vineyards and Winery in Mocksville, North Carolina, in 1998. The land they purchased southwest of Winston-Salem had been used to farm cattle, and there were only 25 other wineries in the state. North Carolina wine was a fledgling industry compared to California or Washington, but the Neelys wanted to showcase the South and prove North Carolinians could make good wine, too.
