Micro-winery opens in Morgantown

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – Micro-winery, Findley Martin has opened on the Mileground in Morgantown.

Founders Any Sidwell and Murray Gervais earned silver medal for their Viognier and Cherry wines and bronze medals for their Pinot Noir and Chardonnay by judges from the American Wine Society at the Pittsburgh Wine Experience.

Findley Martin’s label was awarded silver in the 2019 International Wine Label Design Contest.

Findley Martin is a micro-winery. “A micro-winery does not have its own vineyard, but produces small batches of wine from grapes and fruits it gets from farmers,” explained Murray Gervais. “Over the past two years, we have worked with a number of farmers, winemakers, and brewers who have helped us immeasurably,” said Amy Sidwell.

Sidwell and Gervais started making wine in their homes and were quickly running out of room in their pantries.

“Our plan going forward is to keep making high-quality, small batch wine, while supporting the people who have helped us. We’re excited to promote local artisans by highlighting a Maker-of-the-Month each month,” said Murray.

Wine and Maker-of-the-Month retail sales take place at 1533 Mileground Road, Suite B, Morgantown, West Virginia. Find the shop’s entrance on the outside, ground floor of the KLM Properties building.

The winery’s grand opening will take place on Saturday, November 30 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
