West Wind Farm Vineyard & Winery – Max Meadow, VA (Wythe County)
Wythe County in Southwest Virginia has been referred to as God’s country. Much of the county lies in a beautiful, expansive valley with the Blue Ridge Mountains on one side and the Allegheny Mountains on the other.
West Wind Farm is the current incarnation of the family farm that started as Mount Zephyr in the mid-19th century. The Humphrey family acquired the property in 1914. Paul and Brenda (Humphrey) Hric were able to keep it in the family by establishing West Wind Farm Vineyard & Winery. (Just in case you’re wondering, Zephyr means “west wind”.)
West Wind Farm Vineyard & Winery was the second winery in Virginia to be certified Virginia Green by the Commonwealth’s Department of Environmental Quality. They subscribe to principals of sustainability and try to minimize our impact on the environment when possible.
