West Wind Wines began with a vision to craft the highest quality local wines, while benefiting the land and the people who live there. The vineyard was planted in 1999 at the 700 foot elevation on Black Mountain. When the cattle ranch was shut down and John and Cynthia Klock purchased the property, they wanted the land to retain its agricultural purpose. After careful consideration, grapes and olives were chosen. West Wind Wines also wanted to promote job training and community nonprofits that support the local people. This hybrid mission of supporting the land and its people is the focus of West Wind Wines.
Community volunteers are a big part of the winery. Volunteers help to harvest, make and bottle the wine. It is such a joy to watch people come together to help with the entire process and then to see buyers have a wonderful culinary experience around their table while families in need can also benefit from the proceeds of the wine sales to Gilead House.
West Wind Wines is about much more than wine. It is a great example of bringing people together to restore families, restore the land and produce great wine.
