Slightly Askew Winery

Slightly Askew WineryWhat a quaint little winery! Slightly Askew is conveniently located right off a main road (North Bridge Street) in Elkin, NC.  We pulled in behind the building to park and enter the tasting room where we were greeted by one of the owners, Walt an easy going, friendly, knowledgeable man. He said Slightly Askew had been open for about 12 years and their wine is made and bottled on site, but the grapes are imported from different places.

They have a great selection for sweet and dry wine lovers (something for everyone), but what makes Slightly Askew “Slightly” different is it’s creative choices of wine names like: Penny for your thoughts, Crooked Toe, Slut Dog, Drama Kween, and more.   Some named after family pets which have unique stories that add a lighthearted humor to the place. The wine is priced great, and you get around 7 samples in a tasting. The cozy back porch is a great spot to sit with friends and have a good time.
