The grounds on the outside of Heston Farms Winery look fantastic and unfortunately we showed up on a rainy day and so wish we could have visited on a nice day. Once inside the staff was great, however the wine selections are mostly sweet wines and my wife and I prefer drier wines so for this reason my grade has... More

Hope you can stop by on a sunny day and enjoy the courtyard and dinner at Foxfire restaurant, too. Glad to hear that you discovered the rooms upstairs in our... More

I have been to Heston Farms a few times. For wine tasting, once for an event, and a couple times to eat. I have mixed feelings about the place. It is extremely beautiful, and I love the animals that frequent the area, those that the wines are named after. I have always had great experience with the staff in the... More

I’m very sorry that you didn’t have an equally great experience at the restaurant. The restaurant has been very busy, and reservations on weekends are... More

We stopped on our way home for lunch and to try their wines. The wines are all sweet which we don't care for but we did get a bottle of their Riesling which was nice. I was pretty skeptical when we had to seat ourselves in the restaurant and because the restaurant was more rustic than I expected. The decor... More

We always have a great time here. Especially when they bring in musical acts or have a festival. I honestly only like a few of their wines, but that is okay! I know which ones I like and that's the bottle I share with a friend or two. It's a beautiful place and it's very relaxing to sip wine on... More

We Booked Our Event When We Could Bring Our Own Food. No Outside Catering But If You Want To Cook It Was Ok Then. The Place Is Absolutely Beautiful, There Was A Full Service Kitchen Included In Our Package And A Nice Little Cabana. It Was The First Official Place We Looked At Although It Was A 2 Hour Drive...

Our evening with friends from high school at Heston Farm Winery was an evening that was not something you would pass on to people to go and enjoy. We arrived at 6:00, the time we made reservations for a party of 10 and was seated to our table. The waitress arrived at our table to take our drinks order and... More

My husband and I visited the Heston Farm Winery for the evening. Due to poor weather we were unable to sit outside however we had an excellent evening with the wine tasting assistant. The wine tasting has a fee however the moonshine products and other spirits are free to sample. Our experience with other WV wineries as well as other... More

Staying at the Lakeview resort, we couldn't pass up the opportunity to explore Heston Farms. Everything is fabulous! Mr. Heston entertained us with his ingenuity and stories. We are so thankful for the time he spent giving us a tour. The wine is fun and tasty and the food is amazing and a value! Being at Heston is like your... More

This past Saturday my fellow and I were headed to visit family and we were on the road for several hours. Just before arriving we decided to stop in somewhere to unwind from the road trip. We saw the sign for Heston Farm Winery and Pinchgut Distillery and had to give it a shot. Wow what a treat. We went... More

We were able to try several wines on a recent visit, and none were the type of wine that my husband and I enjoy. If you like homemade wine, light-bodied and sweet wines, this is the place for you. The distillery's ramp-infused bourbon was quite good, and would be wonderful as a glaze for salmon (with a little brown sugar... More
