Potomac Highland Winery was founded in 1992 by Dr. Charles Whitehill and is located in the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia. The region's terrain provides an idyllic setting as well as an advantageous micro-climate for grape growing.

Known for producing fine table wines, Dr. Whitehill, along with his wife Becky and son Rhoades, still oversees every aspect of production— from the harvesting of the grapes to the final bottling of the wine. The result of their labors has been award winning wines of remarkable consistency that have won the praise of both the public and fellow winemakers.

Located in West Virginia's Eastern Panhandle, Potomac Highland Winery's vineyard consists of gently sloping hills. The abundance of shale in the soil gives this region a similar "terrior" to that of Germany although the climate is drier.

A late summer/early fall drought usually provides an advantageous stressing of the vines resulting in a concentration of the grape sugars.
