Here's some really good news! :dance:

Westbend Vineyards — one of North Carolina’s oldest and most pioneering wineries — sold today to new owners for $1.6 million, former owner Lillian Kroustalis confirmed. Walt and Sonya Breathwit of Houston, Texas, have been in discussions with Kroustalis for the past two months and closed on the deal, purchasing 40 acres of vineyards and a turn-key winery and brewery there that they hope to re-open in the spring. The couple had been interested in the wine business for several years, investigating properties in California, Virginia and North Carolina, Kroustalis said. “They had done their homework. They were well aware of the history of Westbend.” She said earlier media reports of the winery operation being sold at auction in September were incorrect.

Former Westbend winemaker Mary Terry will rejoin the operation as a consultant, crafting wine and beer on the property. Kroustalis stunned the Yadkin Valley wine industry with she announced she was closing the winery, brewery and tasting room to the public in March 2014. The winery planted a vineyard in the 1970s, was bonded in 1988 and began selling wines made from traditional European grapes in 1990. At the time, Westbend was considered a pioneer for eschewing muscadine grapes and focusing on Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.

Terry and Kroustalis said crews continued to maintain the vineyard and all the equipment is in place to begin making wine. “There’s wine in the tanks and in barrel now there that are ready for bottling,” Terry said. Jack Kroustalis, a restaurant supply company owner, began planting traditional European grapes in the early 1970s — a move greeted with disbelief and derision at the time. Kroustalis frequently found himself on the road, visiting restaurants and retail wine shops, trying to enlist support for North Carolina wines. Westbend picked up favorable press in such publications as Wine Spectator and Wine Advocate. Nationally renowned wine writer Robert Parker once called Westbend “one of the South’s best kept secrets.”

The winery derives its name from the region around the vineyards; locals know it as “West Bend” because of a bend to the west of the Yadkin River. It rejoins 130-plus N.C. wineries, including Medaloni Cellars, less than a mile from from Westbend.
