Watts Roost Vineyard is owned by Frank & Barbara Tuckwiller. What had started out as a retirement dream has turned into reality. There were a few bumps along the way, but now they tend to 9,000 plants on 9 acres and welcome visitors who stop by. Established in 1998, the vines flourish at the foot of Muddy Creek Mountain near Lewisburg, WV. The French hybrid vines are nurtured by the early morning sun and warm rains on an eastern slope. Award-winning wine is created on-site.
The winter 2011 issue of the Greenbrier Valley Quarterly (www.gvquarterly.com). has a wonderful article on our vineyard. We’ve come a long way. We were previously featured in 2008 April/May issue of West Virginia South magazine, pages 10-12. Check out the PDF or TEXT of the feature “Watts Roost Vineyard: A visit worth savoring”.
Check out the June/July 21014 issue of PALATE, a magazine celebrating the food culture of the South. On Page 35 read about the transition of our vineyard to sheep pasture and the wines to lamb meat and fleece.
