Crissy Belleau, at left, Christine Crespo and Chris Foote, right, working volunteers with the Airlift Tanker Assoc. at SJAFB in Goldsboro, sort through ripe scuppernong and muscadine grapes picked for the first harvest of the season at A Secret Garden winery and vineyards near Pikeville. The grapes will be used to make wines and other retail products. A Secret Garden is owned and operated by Linda and Gerald Hall who started the acre of vineyards on Linda Hall’s family farm in the spring of 2002. The sweet grapes are grown organically using rich composted farm soil and deep well-water, without the use of harsh pesticides and herbicides. All of the hand-crafted wines are fermented on location, using only the natural yeast found on the fruit with no preservatives added. A Secret Garden produces several varieties of N.C. wines and offers vineyard tours, a tasting room and wine shop, at 1018 Airport Road in Wayne County.
