Our Story
         
In 1972, former ceramics engineer, Ken Moyer, set out on a course to attain his dream of becoming a vintner. Accompanied by his wife, Mary, and young-daughter, Ken searched the country to find an ideal place that would not only be conducive to the production of fine-wine, but also, to the blossoming of his young family. When the couple arrived in the Ohio Valley, they knew they had found their place. Ken and Mary promptly bought the land and the building in which you are now seated.

Like Ken himself, the grounds which would become Moyer's Winery have an interesting history, to say the least. Constructed in 1926, the building began as a restaurant and dance-hall, and, ironically enough, served as a speakeasy during the Prohibition-era. In the mid-1930's, the property continued to attract interesting patrons by hosting amateur boxing bouts in the barn located west of the restaurant. The devastating flood of '37 put a damper on the diverse festivities the locals enjoyed as six-feet of water stood stagnant in all facilities on the property. After renovations in the 40's, right around the time Ken was serving the Allies as a Captain in the U.S. Army, during which he received the Bronze-Star, the doors once again opened as "The Top Hat" gambling club. By the time Ken and Mary stumbled upon their ideal Ohio Valley home, the building had served as a truck-stop for nearly two decades.

After Ken and Mary transformed the grounds into a vineyard, they officially opened for business in 1973 with a modest, traditional pairing menu of cheeses, breads, and soups. But with the novelty of having a winery in the unexpected place of Adams County, Ohio, the restaurant's popularity, bolstered by its quality wine, grew, and with it, the eclectic choices of today's menu.

While dining, one can enjoy a glass of wine while observing the very DeChaunac or Chambourcin vines from which it was fermented. The complete wine-making process is performed in-house just a few feet below the dining-room in our winery; from de-stemming the grapes, crushing the fruit with modern Italian equipment, to fermentation in stainless-steel tanks, we ensure that your wine is of a quality that only the conditions of the Valley can provide.

Honoring Ken and Mary's legacy, we continue to make the original blends of red and white wines which the couple perfected nearly 50 years ago. The reds Cabernet and Chambourcin, the whites Vidal and Chardonnay, as well as the sweet River Valley white and red wines are as they were all those years ago. But just as our culinary selections have grown over the years, so have our wines. Our newest additions of Country Home Red, Concord, Raspberry, Strawberry, Peach, and Sangria are sure to carry-on the tradition of quality wine.

In 1999, Ken and Mary sold the winery and restaurant to a group of close-friends on the basis that they would uphold the high-standards of quality that the Moyer's held themselves to. We feel confident in saying that we have achieved that goal, and, in a few moments, we believe you will agree.
