“Pleasant Surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2014 via mobile

Say the signs on our trip north and decided to try it out on our way home. Was glad we stopped because they had a great selection of wine from sweet to dry and lots of fruit wines. Tastings were free and the staff was very nice. We purchased two bottles and when traveling home we will be sure to always make this a stop for a bottle of wine!

“Stopped in for the Grape Stomping Festival”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 September 2013

We visited for the annual grape stomping festival. We paid $12.00 each to sample and enjoy the varieties of wines from Summerville, WV. I was most pleased with how friendly everyone was at the winery. They were pouring samples as if they got a bonus for giving the wine away. They were all too pleased to explain what it was you were sampling and in many cases gave a history of why and how they came to make it.
While we did eat here it was from tented vendors so you're not going to get a meal but hey they do have excellent wines.

“Huge Selection of Wine & Moonshine!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2013 via mobile

We had a lot of fun while tasting at Kirkwood. The employee was very friendly and accommodating, allowing us to taste any wine or moonshine that we wanted. It wasn't as "sophisticated" as other wineries that we have visited in other states, but I think that is the owner's intent. They have a huge selection of wines and moonshine, including ginseng, ramp, dandelion, strawberry, blackberry, raspberry, peach, pear, apple, grape, and several more. We will definitely be visiting Kirkwood again!!

“mmmmm”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 September 2012

Kirkwood Winery is such a great reflection of WV. They have TOO many flavors to choose from (haha). Everytime we visit we have to purchase 5 new different flavors that we haven't ever tried. Blackberry and raspberry are especially my favorites!
