A Currituck County wine producer had six of its wines place in this year’s North Carolina State Fair Wine Competition, including a double gold award for its blackberry wine.

Sanctuary Vineyards, by the Cotton Gin in Jarvisburg, has been growing grapes for eight years but only recently began to enter its wines into competitions. Owner John Wright said his family and the vineyard’s workers are excited about the praise for their product.
