A special holiday message from the Jeroslow and the White families who found each other through their experience working for the theatrical sensation Blue Man Group and discovered Elkin Creek Vineyard when the Whites married there in 2008. Elkin Creek Vineyard was created as a labor of love and beginning in 2001 from Mark Greene's vision. After purchasing the century-old mill, he and his wife planted the vineyard and built the winery/restaurant with help from a few friends and his five children. The Jeroslow and the White families now look forward to a great future as the new caretakers of this special place in the Carolinas.
