Ve’Atlass the fashion brand, has partnered with Charlie T Locklear Vineyard & Winery to produce and distribute a high-end upscale wine that has taken the industry by storm.

Quote from Ve’Atlass Da-Designer:

“After going across the country and meeting and tasting wines to see if they met or pallet, we didn’t have to look fare from home. Only hours from our doorsteps to find, what we felt to be one of the best Vineyard in the South and located in Maxton, North Carolina. Sitting down with the CEO Daryl Locklear just felt like family to me. He was so well spoken and the passion he had for family, culture and the overall vision of where we as a brand wanted to go. Just felt good to me”.

 

Charlie T Locklear Vineyard & Winery is wholly owned and operated by family. We are proud members of the Lumbee Tribe of North Carolina.

The idea of owning and operating a commercial winery was nothing but a dream for my father, and it probably was not even thought of as an attainable dream 15 years ago. Charlie toiled on the family farm growing up, where his family grew cotton, tobacco, corn, soybeans, cucumbers; raised livestock; and planted and harvested vegetables for the table. He was the fourth son in a family of ten siblings, and he learned at an early age that hard work was a part of life. Following years working the farm, he worked as a mechanic, then served in the Army reserves and finally worked in the manufactured home industry. Charlie has a tenacious personality and has never accepted the concept that dreams cannot be obtained.
My brother and I have always been my father’s little helpers, and he taught us as we grew up on the farm that hard work makes the body and mind stronger. With this instilled in us at an early age, we have never been afraid of hard work. So the challenges that a vineyard and winery presented did not scare us away. In fact, we embraced it as a family and began the task of building a family legacy. This has been a family venture from the beginning, and we have done all the labor, design and layout ourselves, with nothing more than the desire to achieve.
Together we took a small part of the farm and planted Muscadine vines and converted an old storage building into the wine production facility, which also houses the retail wine store. Currently with the vines we have planted we can produce approximately 3500 cases of the 9500 cases of wine per year when in full production.

Ve’Atlass Da-Designer has a passion for “Sweet Wine”.

We still know that there are customers that prefer a milder taste in life. And with that being said. We went back into the lab and created two of the finest blends in the world. Blending our “Simi Sweet” and “Dry” Wine. Using the finest fruits from “Farm to Mouth” for sure. But understanding our mission and fist love is producing and Bottling Sweet Wines. Sweet wines are a type of wine that tends to have a higher level of residual sugar compared to other types of wines. These wines can be made from different types of grapes/fruits and can range from light and fruity to rich and complex. Some of the most popular types of sweet wines include Muscadine and Fruit. Sweet wines are often enjoyed as a dessert wine but can also be paired with certain types of foods, such as spicy or salty dishes, to balance out the flavors. While some wine lovers may prefer drier wines, sweet wines have a loyal following and continue to be enjoyed by many around the world for their unique taste and versatility.
