“Not what I expected.”
Reviewed 20 February 2012

I read the reviews on Trip Advisor and decided to check out this winery. It was small but had beautiful views. The wine was displayed nicely enough but no prices. We looked around and asked a few questions but had to practically pull teeth to get a taste of anything. The man giving the samples was very busy but did stop to pour a few samples. He was knowledgeable but there was no interest in what we were looking for or helping us find our favorite taste. Another man came in and poured himself a glass of wine right in front of us but did not speak to us. We purchased almost $100 worth of wine and left feeling like it didn't matter to them if we stopped by or not. Like we were interrupting.

The colors outside were odd and the unique gifts upstairs were interesting but odd as well.

Two days later at the local Kroger we found the same wine we just bought at the winery for $3-$5 a bottle LESS than what we paid. Also odd.

The wine is good but not that good - we won't go back to the winery but may pick up a bottle of chocolate wine at Kroger,

“I love this winery!”
Reviewed 21 January 2012

Charming comes to mind when I describe my visit to Forks of Cheat Winery. The owners were wonderfully accomodating and knowledgable. I can't wait to go back in summer, sit on their sweet deck overlooking the valley, sip some wine and eat cheese. Delicious wines, nice gift shop, too.

“Small, but great personal attention”

Follow the road signs carefully, and when you get here you'll find a small tasting area with excellent service and a nice selection of affordable wines.

We went, had some samples, and bought some wine that we all enjoyed. The grounds are very nice in the better weather.
