Enjoy the delicious wines that are made after old country recipes from the local harvest, with an atmosphere of casual elegance. Kick your feet up, smoke a cigar and have a glass of your favorite wine with a well paired plate of cheese and fruit. Be romantic with your significant other or meet with friends and family. Sit on the couch and gaze into the fire or hang out on the deck to look over the rustic countryside. Perhaps a stroll through our estate, sit at one of our outdoor tables for more country atmosphere. The setting is relaxed, elegant and away from the hubub of city living. A destination no matter the distance traveled.
At R** Bandana (red neck) Winery, our objective is to provide the most delicious wine that suites the pallet of the customer, beit dry or sweet or anything in between.
In addition to our wine, we will have French Press coffee for those who would prefer a non-alcoholic drink. All our coffee flavors are fresh roasted from the Strip District in Pittsburgh, my home town.
Cigars ‘All Men Are Welcome!’
What man doesn’t enjoy a good cigar with a lovely glass of Port wine in front of a fire? We will be selling a variety of cigars for those who enjoy the combined flavors of wine and cigars with the atmosphere to go with it.

Why we named the Winery “R** Bandana”("Red Neck")
With the origin of the mining industry in the Appalachian Mountains in 1883 to 1919, the coal companies controlled the miners economically, paying the workers only by scrip, tokens or credit. Miners were forced to purchase at the company store and rent the company housing plus leased the very tools they needed to mine the coal, all of which were provided at over inflated prices. Miners were forbidden to leave or shop outside the mining camp!
The conditions were so deplorable that the workers finally had an upraise starting in 1913 to 1921.
Then in 1919 West Virginia, coal miners made a stand on Blair Mountain, where hundreds died fighting against their slave driven employers. They wore RED BANDANAS to identify themselves and earned them the nickname, ‘RED NECKS’. The term was considered an honor and at R** BANDANA Winery we are proud to be RED NECKS!
