Today row after row of vines laden with grapes replace the once noisy dozers, haulers and coal trucks. Hawks circle the skies where dust and noise once ruled. The sparkling blue pond that once served as a brown sediment pool, welcomes quiet fishermen catching bass, bluegill, and catfish. MountainRose Vineyards is a family-owned dream located in the heart of the Appalachian Mountains.
Visitors love to tour the vineyards and try the wines, being pleasantly surprised when they taste them. Most can’t believe such great wines are being made in the heart of coal country, more famous for coal mine strikes than award winning spirits. What brings visitors back again and again is not only the wonderful wine, but a chance to be part of the dream. The truth is the wonderful white, blush, and red wines of MountainRose Vineyards, not the black coal, are the true hidden treasures of the Appalachian Mountains.
