Fruit of the Vine

Record #:
At one time Polk County had a thriving wine industry that produced quality wine between the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Once there were twenty-two vineyards; now there are only two. Prohibition and World War II when workers were called up for service put a crimp in the industry. Now two wineries are reviving Polk County's wine tradition--Green Creek Winery in Columbus and Rockhouse Vineyards in Tryon.
