Westbend’s founder, Jack Kroustalis planted his first vinifera grapes in 1972, contrary to the advice of everyone he met. By 1986 he had harvested over 70 tons of vinifera grapes, proving that vinifera grapes production could be successful in the Yadkin Valley and North Carolina. Westbend became a bonded winery in 1988 and released their first wines in June of 1990. If you visit the winery you can choose from over 20 different wines to taste and purchase. Following the tradition and good business sense of Jack Kroustalis, his wife Lillian now runs the winery and vineyards. In 2004 they hired a new wine maker, Mark Terry who has done amazing things with the last two vintages produced at Westbend Winery. These could be some of the best wines available today. Try one of these beauties when you get the chance, but the real fun is visiting the winery. The setting is beautiful, pack a lunch and enjoy a bottle of wine surrounded by sixty acres of luscious grape vines and lots of gorgeous fruit trees. It is an experience NOT to be missed!
