Ungrapeful Winery (formerly Walnut Hill Winery) is a locally owned winery located in the beautiful community of Blairsville, Pennsylvania. Walnut Hill Winery was open for 11 years before we bought it in January of 2015. We reopened it in July of that same year.
My wife and I started making wine as a hobby, something we did together as we were dating. At that time we were going to various wineries. We didn’t want to make something we have had, instead we wanted to make things we had never seen and were eager to try. So, every time we would go to the grocery store, or see something on sale, or had an idea of something we wanted to make, we would go and turn it into wine. At one point there was literally over 40 different types of wine all brewing at the same time, no grapes. So that became the running joke on how “Ungrapeful” it was.
