Abstract:
Currently there are fifty-three wineries in the state, with ten more expected in 2006, and another twenty in 2007. State winemakers face a formidable array of challenges: Pierce's Disease, grape root borers, Ph factors, Supreme Court rulings, the weather, budgeting, and marketing. Still, 600,000 gallons of wine, valued at $34 million, were produced and sold in 2004, making the state the twelfth largest wine producer in the country. Vineyards and wineries create around 835 jobs and have an economic impact of $79 million.

Abstract:
Bivins discusses the sixteen counties that comprise the North Carolina Northeast Partnership. The region extends from the Outer Banks westward to Halifax County and southward to Beaufort and Hyde counties. SITE SELECTION magazine named the area one of the top ten economic development organizations in the nation. While the area is historically significant, it generally has not prospered through the years because of its agrarian landscape, sparsely populated communities, and sheer remoteness from the rest of the state. With improving infrastructure, transportation upgrades, Internet access, and expanding agribusiness and commercial investments, the area is seen as a region on the rise.
