West-Whitehill Winery, founded in 1981, has established a tradition of producing fine wines from grapes grown in the cool, dry, sunny climates of the South Branch Valley and Potomac Highlands of eastern West Virginia.
Steve West started the business from a few acres of grapes in 1981 and homemade machines to producing thousands of cases of eleven wines.
His daughter Amanda West has now taken over the business and management of the vineyard.
How to Buy
Family member Tyler Wilkins is the winemaker and winery manager.
West Whitehill Winery is located in Moorefield, Hardy County, West Virginia in an area known as the Potomac Highlands. We produce wine from French-American hybrid varietals selected to withstand the colder climate of the eastern Alleghanies.
Located in Hardy county, our vineyard 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, we have grown French-American hybrid varietals such as Chambourcin, Seyval, Aurore and Vidal Blanc.
