West Wind Farm is a fourth-generation homestead in Southwest Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains. Although we planted our grapes in 2003, our family’s roots date back nearly a century.

 

We welcome hikers, motorists, cyclists, motorcyclists, corporate escape artists, picnicking lovers, stressed-out lawyers, tired old hippies, Yankee tourists, and the occasional wine expert to our breezy hillside gathering place. If you’re in the area, do stop in and try our small batch, family-crafted wine.

 

Come visit us!

 

Our winery and tasting room are easily accessible from I-81 and I-77 at Fort Chiswell near Wytheville in Wythe County. We're midway between Roanoke and Bristol and also between Charlotte, NC, and Charleston, WV.  We're also less than an hour from Virginia Tech and just a half-hour from Radford University. Scroll down for specific directions.

 

We are located on US-52 between I-77 and I-81 south of Fort Chiswell and north of the New River.

The Vineyard

Our farm in Blue Ridge Mountains of Southwestern Virginia provides a beautiful setting for our vineyard and winery.  The elevation, cool nights, well-draining rocky soil and other factors go far in making our vineyard unique and in generating a distinct, high-quality crop of grapes. Good wine can only start with good fruit.

 

The elevation and climate do provide tests, as well.  Our shorter growing season can prove challenging, particularly when mid-May frosts and early October freezes occur.

 

These challenges become opportunities, however, as we turn the fruit from our farm into wine you can find nowhere else.

 

 

 

 

Family-crafted Wine

Our wine is never manufactured. We create only small batches of wine every year using age-old winemaking methods. Each lot is hand-tended from harvest to bottle and virtually all of the work is done by our family.  We believe our small-batch winemaking allows us to provide unique wines of the highest quality from vintage to vintage.

 

 We intend for the character of the grape or blend to show through in each of our offerings, and our mountain-grown grapes are brimming with character!  Our wines may not always be traditional, but we guarantee they won’t be like any others you’ve had.
