In the South Branch Valley and Potomac Highlands of eastern West Virginia, West-Whitehill Winery grows grapes and makes unique blends of wines. Owner Steve West produces wine from French-American hybrid varietals selected to withstand the colder climate of the eastern Alleghanies. Located in Hardy County in the eastern panhandle, the South Branch Valley lies in a unique 'rain shadow', which receives less rain than anywhere else in the state, making it more ideal for growing grapes than surrounding areas. Since 1981, Steve has grown French-American hybrid varietals such as Chambourcin, Seyval, Aurore and Vidal.
We offer our wines through stores in the region, by mail or at our winery. We also participate in many festivals across the state.
