2015 West Virginia Wine and Jazz Festival
I often talk about how Morgantown is a college town, and I, being outside of a typical college-aged student, feel out of place. Most of the events cater to this crowd, as do many of the restaurants. My absolute favorite event every year, though, is the West Virginia Wine and Jazz festival.
It’s the perfect time to revisit staple West Virginia wineries and possibly find some new favorites. This year’s event, which took place Sept. 19-20, featured Daniel Vineyards, Fisher Ridge, Forks of Cheat, Heston Farm Winery, Kenco Farms, Lambert’s Vintage Wines, Potomac Highland Winery and West-Whitehill Winery. I’ve been to about half, and I hope to get to the other half as time allows. Some of my favorites are always Forks of Cheat, and I loved most Potomac Highland’s wines, too.
