About Us

On The Vine magazine was created by Susan Lyons in the late 1990s as a way to promote the budding wine industry in the Yadkin Valley Appellation Viticulture Area of North Carolina. The Tribune’s parent company took over publication of the magazine a year or so later, and has published it quarterly since then, expanding its focus to include the wine industry across the state.
Civitas Media’s publication, The Tribune in Elkin, continues to produce On The Vine magazine to highlight and share North Carolina’s best wineries and vineyards with residents and visitors to the state. The glossy print edition is distributed in wineries, visitors centers and state welcome centers around North Carolina.
