fter much encouragement from our family & friends and receiving a Gold Addy and the Judges Choice from the Tri-City Metro Ad Federation in 2006, we planted our bushes, brambles and orchard, began our farm winery licensing process and started turning a portion of our home into the winery.
We felt it important to name our winery something that was meaningful to our family. During that period when we were racking our brains for the "perfect' name, we took a trip to the mountains of West Virginia. On our way home we noticed the Coltsfoot blooms coming through the snow. This was a flower we always looked forward to spotting when traveling with our children in the early spring. Coltsfoot is known as the "first sign of spring, or "the bloom of a new beginning.' Thus the name...Coltsfoot Winery.
We became a farm winery in February, set our first wine in March, and sold our first bottle in August to our friends, Jim & Annette Thomas of Countryside Vineyards & Winery.
Edward & Sandra Carney are the winemakers, but the winery, bushes, brambles, and orchard involves everyone in the family and many close friends.
