A Family Farm Turned Winery

Heston Farm consists of 200 acres of rustic, rolling West Virginia farmland, situated on the banks of the Tygart River. It is a pristine farm, complete with natural spring water, cattle, llamas, ponies, fields of hops and buckwheat, a community garden, a vineyard and so much more.

The farm has been owned and managed by the Hestons for generations. In 1995 Mickey Heston and his wife, Julie Smith created Heston Events pavilions, where friends and family gather for weddings, class reunions, graduations and more, filling the riverside property with fun and laughter from April to October every year.    

Mickey and Julie next began building Heston Farm Winery and Pinchgut Hollow Distillery, holding the grand opening on May 21, 2011. Inspired by their trips to Napa Valley, the couple wanted to create an atmosphere that welcomed families, offering much more than simple wine and whiskey tastings. You’ll see that the Main Farm House is centered around the courtyard, where children can wear themselves out pumping antique handcars around a train track while adults enjoy live music on warm summer nights.
