The Rusty Nail Winery

2021, Road Trip, West Virginia

What a delight to go hang out for a couple of hours in a winery knowing that the trek home is walking just a few yards to our camper. That’s just what Mike and Shelly offered us at The Rusty Nail in Martinsburg, West Virginia last night. Lucky for us they joined Harvest Hosts several months ago and they are located just off I-81, along our route from western Massachusetts to our North Carolina house, giving us a great opportunity for an overnight stay and chance to become a customer of a business we’d probably never otherwise know about. They’re a small farm winery, growing a few of their own grapes and otherwise concentrating on Niagara grapes, which we personally favor for their low tannins. It was a delightful evening of sipping various wines and of swapping stories with them as well as our fellow Harvest Hosts guests. From here we plan to overnight tonight in Wytheville then head back to the house for just a few days. We have a couple of things to do including get the new trailer registered before getting back on the road.
