Daniel Vineyards, Crab Orchard

#4 of 6 in Wineries in West Virginia
Winery / Vineyard · Hidden Gem · Food & Drink
The Daniel Vineyards is a family-owned estate winery located in Crab Orchard, West Virginia. The vineyard was created in 1990 at the former location of the 192-acre (78 ha) Twin Oaks Golf Course by Doctor C. Richard Daniel, a retired radiologist. About 20 acres (8.1 ha) are used for vineyards, with an additional acreage for blackberries and 3 acres (1.2 ha) for blueberries. Visitors are allowed to pick their own blueberries when in season.
The vineyard is over 2,500 feet (760 m) above sea level, so cultivars were chosen that thrive in a cold climate. These cultivars are disease resistant and use a special trellis, the "Vertical Shoot Positioning V-shaped system", developed by Dr. Daniel. By 2007 Daniel Vineyards was West Virginia's largest winery. It has hosted the West Virginia Spring Wine Festival each year since 1999. In 2008 the West Virginia Department of Conservation rated the vineyard as the third best conservation farm in West Virginia, due in part to features such as deer training fences and vegetation around the vineyard such as Canadian hemlock, Lombardy poplar, and roses. Special events such as birthdays and weddings are held at the vineyard.

  • Great place for celebrations and events. Staff is very welcoming and beautiful views everywhere.
  • Daniel Vineyard's was an amazing venue for my daughter's wedding. They were so easy to work with and helped us plan everything! The employees went above and beyond what we expected and by the end of the reception, they felt more like family. They helped us with referrals to local vendors (caterer, florist, baker, etc) and encouraged us to contact them if we had any questions. This was a valuable lifeline since we are from NJ. We used the entire venue. We got ready in the tasting room, the ceremony was at the gazebo, cocktail hour on the deck, and reception in the pavilion. All were equally beautiful and provided just the perfect touch for each event. If I were planning another wedding in Southern West Virginia, I would head right to Daniel Vineyards. Once you have worked with them you would always want to go back!!!!
