Celebrating 30 Years!
Who would have thought that getting caught stealing grapes would lead Jerry Deal to ownership of one of West Virginia’s foremost wineries? Well, that’s just what happened! When a neighbor chastised Jerry for eating grapes from her vines, he planted his own. After several years of home wine making, recognition in amateur competitions, and the support of his friends, Jerry decided to turn his hobby into a business. And so, Forks of Cheat Winery was established in July of 1990.
What started as a hobby for Jerry has become a full-time job. Several full-time jobs in fact, as Jerry is joined by his wife, Susan, his son Eric, and the rest of the staff who have become extended family.
We hope you'll bring your family to meet ours, enjoy our wines and continue making the Forks of Cheat West Virginia's premier winery
