“Great Place to Go”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2013

This was the first winery I visited. Met some co-workers there and had a great time. They gave tastings of some of the moonshine flavors. Not a moonshine drinker, but theirs was surely good. The wine was great. We tried a three or four different types of wine, and we all left there feeling pretty good. Music was great, and staff was very friendly.

“Delicious!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013 via mobile

Beautiful location, overlooking the hills of WV. The wine tasting was great. They have a nice selection of very good wines and we got a couple bottles we enjoy at home now. They also have WV made honeys, jams and many more delicious things. Check out the "Hobbit's Attic" on the upper floor as well.

Thanks for stopping by! We're so glad you were able to find some wines to take home and enjoy. Also wanted to let you know that though we will still be carrying many fine WV made products and unique gifts, the Hobbit's Attic upstairs will be discontinued soon. We hope to use the space as a year-round seating area for our guest as well as a site for small private gatherings. We hope you'll stop by again the next time you're in the area.

“Reasonably good wine store with exceptional staff.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2013

This is a small, rural, winery. They do have a reasonably wide variety of wines that are available for tasting. The lady in charge is extremely pleasant and helpful - for the wine, the gift shop and even directions to your next place. This is an exceptionally good place to get fruit wines. Although they do have dessert wines, they do not offer late harvest wines. A good place to visit if you enjoy a variety of wines.

“Many Fruit Wines”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2013

This was our first visit to the winery. We live in the Northern Virginia wine country and were surprised to see that wineries were opening up in West Virginia. The winery is small with an outdoor seating area. The wine shop has a large variety of food products and other things. We tasted several of the wines, which were just ok. They have many fruit wines, but we aren't into sweet wines. The people there were nice.

Thanks for taking the time to review us! We're proud to be part of a growing West Virginia Wine Industry which is getting bigger all the time. We hope that next time you're through you'll have time to stop again and check out some of our more traditional, grape based wines as well. Make sure you try some of our distilled spirits too!
Have a great day,
Ivy
