History

Westbend Winery began as an experiment in 1972. Many state agriculture authorities expressed strong reservations as to whether it was wise to plant French wine grapes in North Carolina, specifically the Yadkin River valley area. Jack Kroustalis, Westbend InsightOne of the South's best kept wine secrets is Westbend Vineyards in Lewisville, North Carolina. Westbend produces two excellent Chardonnay cuvées; a tasty, rich Seyval, a good Sauvignon, and a surprisingly spicy, herbal, cassis and chocolate scented and flavored Cabernet Sauvignon. As fine as these wines are, I am surprised they are not better known outside of North Carolina..... Robert Parker, The Wine Advocatea Winston-Salem, NC business man had just purchased acreage in western Forsyth county and was planning to grow French varietals. He did not let the expert opinions stop him. This only made Jack more determined to succeed. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Chardonnay were among the first grapes to be planted. Subsequent plantings would be made in 1981, 84, and 86. The total vineyard acreage today is 60. In 1988 Westbend Winery opened as a commercial winery, and released the first vintage in 1990, thus proving all the "experts" wrong.
