Whispering Hills Vineyards began in 2002 as two vineyards about 3 miles apart. Mike and Dana Killinger ordered their first vines from New York with the hopes of planting a small vineyard. Neighbors Doug and Becky Von Weihe took an interest and bought about an acres worth of vines from the Killinger's to begin their vineyard. 2 acres of Marechal Foch and Concord grapes were planted. These will be in production in the fall of 2004. We currently offer a Rose style wine from our Foch, and our Concord is made into a sweet red wine.

You can expect another in several weeks, but these 40 wines, along with the dozen or so ... Read More
