When your best friend calls and says she wants to take you to a llama winery, you don't ask questions, you just go!

The Divine Llama Winery located in Yadkin, NC is the most originally themed winery I have ever visited, and trust me that says a lot!

As you step on the beautiful porch of their southern-inspired tasting room you see an array of tables, fire pits, and families all enjoying the beautiful weather, award-winning wines, and local bands.

 You have your choice of activities to participate in at the winery, most of them obviously include drinking wine!

You can sip on a glass of wine at the bar, doing a private tasting with friends, drink on the porch (in a lovely rocking chair (real southern style!), shop in their store for clothes and local trinkets, or for those looking for something more physically active- take a llama trek.

The trek is nothing to be feared, it is a 2-mile low-impact walk with you and your llama partner. This allows you to get up close and personal with these furry animals for a fee.

It is of note, that there is no restaurant on-site even though I do think they occasionally have food trucks.

The cool thing though is that on your trek or even just tasting wines they welcome you to bring your own food, charcuterie board, anyone?

The best part to me, about visiting the winery is the unlimited amount of time you get to spend with the llamas. Even if you don't want to pay for the llama trek there is an area, for no extra charge, that allows you to get close to them. 

I loved that we found that in this area no one rushed you while you took your pic. There are tons of llamas of all different colors, shapes, and sizes, so plenty to go around. You are not really encouraged to touch them in this area but I saw almost everyone doing it and it seemed like it was fine. Well. . .everyone except me, because I was way too chicken.

With that being said, I do have to say the llamas were extremely friendly and photogenic. It's like they knew we had our camera out. 

Also, they allow you to bring your glass of wine with you while you observe the animals.

Seriously, what could be better than drinking and hanging with llamas?
