Rich with mountain heritage
First of its kind one-of-a-kind West Virginia Winery
Kirkwood Winery has a rich history as the first winery in Nicholas County, located in the heart of the West Virginia mountains. Our story has soul, our site has scenery, and our team has passion.
It took perseverance to establish the vineyard you see today. The original vineyard was planted in 1984, only to be lost to a harsh winter and drought shortly after. Determined to succeed, the vineyards were replanted—and expanded—to produce over 4,000 gallons of wine annually. The old family oak press featured on our original label has been used since trial production first began almost two decades ago.
Every wine we make has mountain heritage. We know you’ll enjoy the tradition, the taste, and the experience.

An Appalachian tradition turns legal
Isaiah Morgan Distiller
Small batches of Corn Whiskey, crafted beyond the watchful eyes of ‘revenuers’, are part of the lore of the region. Rodney Facemire obtained the license for the nation’s smallest still in 2002. Isaiah Morgan products were available in state-licensed spirits retailers but couldn’t be sold at the site of their creation, disappointing many tourists. Rodney conceived the vision of mini-distilleries, and formed a team of government and business leaders and created what can become a new industry for the state.
Today tourists can observe the crafting of the Southern Moon, Bourbon, Rye, and Grappa at the distillery and purchase a souvenir of their personal glimpse of mountain history and culture.
No visit to the area can be considered complete without a visit to this historic site. 50ml and 750ml Bottles of Southern Moon, Rye Bourbon, and Grappa spirits can be purchased on-site!
