There's a brand new winery right in Morgantown called Findley Martin, which is named after the owners' two favorite lake vacations growing up.

"Looking out at her Concord grape vine, Amy asked Murray, "How hard could it be to make wine?" After recalling the hilarity of Lucille Ball and her friend, Ethel stomping grapes, Amy and Murray set-out to learn how to turn fruit into wine. As it turns out, winemaking isn't so easy. We did a lot of research, met some incredibly helpful winemakers, and fermented numerous batches of wine in our kitchens before "going pro."

Proudly made in West Virginia, the business name Findley Martin was inspired by our favorite places...Findley Lake, New York and Lake Martin, Alabama. We hope our award-winning wines remind you of spending good times with friends by your favorite body of water!"

Sam and I stopped here and had a great conversation with the owners while sampling each of the wines: cabernet sauvignon, pinot noir, sauvignon blanc and muscat canelli. They were each tasty and well-balanced.

One of the cool things about this winery is how collaborative they are with other businesses, including Presque Isle Candy Co., which I had to try - butter pecan brittle and pretzel brittle.
