Our love for the earth (and Concord, North Carolina in particular) guides every aspect of our operation from our grape growing to our wine making. Dover Vineyards strives to produce a wine that is as natural and delicious as possible. We believe that a good wine reflects the community and environment that produces it. We aren't France, we aren't California. We are North Carolina and we know that once you try our wines, you'll love us for who we are.

THE VINEYARD GARDEN
Our family is blessed with two properties which have proven excellent for growing fruits, vegetables, and flowers. Our first location, called the Vineyard Garden, is a field behind the vineyard. The other location, the Adams Garden, is in the front yard of the Adams Family homeplace on Poplar Tent Rd.
Produce from the Vineyard Garden can be purchased at The Farm Stand, located beside the vineyard at 3600 Concord Parkway S Tuesday-Friday, 11-6pm. Saturday 9-12.
On Saturdays, produce can also be purchased directly from the Adams Garden at 4758 Poplar Tent Rd from 9-12pm. (Currently Closed for the Season)
We specilize in growing heirloom varieties of vegetables in the most natural way possible. We don't just have heirloom tomatoes—we have heirloom kale, lettuces, peppers, almost anything you can imagine. You can't get this sort of flavor just anywhere!
We strive to keep our off-farm inputs to a minimum; however, when we do need purchse supplies or tools, we always try to support other small, local businesses. Shopping with us not only supports this local farm, it also helps support the entire community!
We like to describe our farming practices as "uncertified-organic." We follow the majority of the National Organic Program guidlines; however, our farm is not inspected by the government. If you have any questions regarding our agricultural practices, just ask! We'd be happy to talk with you.
SOLD OUT for the season!!
The CSA program is a huge part of the way that we run our farm. It's essentially a magazine subscription to our farms. This is how we determine our operating budget for the season and allows us to farm without going into debt. Our customers pay for their vegetables up front and then receive a share of what the farm produces every week.
We will have pick up sites at our Farm Stand in Concord (Tuesdays and Wednesdays), at Local Loaf (Thursdays) in NoDa, and at the Common Market (Saturdays) in Plaza Midwood. We accept cash, venmo, zelle, check, or PayPal. Contact us for details and the signup form. Hope you can join us!
In addition to the vineyard, we have
PLAZA MIDWOOD FARMER'S MARKET
From April- December, we come to Charlotte to sell our farm products! We are at NoDa Brewing on Thursdays from 5pm-8pm and at Common Market in Plaza Midwood on Saturdays from 10-1pm. Along with our products, we also bring farm goods from other producers and farmers. We have a drop-off for the Charlotte version of our CSA during these times.
