From its inception in Wilcox, Pennsylvania, to the present-day facility in Liverpool,
Pennsylvania, owners, Mike and Carol Williams have strived to do well, to do good,
and to have some fun. That's the essence of what we have done since 1994, when we first
opened our doors.
Under the ownership of Mike and Carol we have built our reputation with a line of
top quality products and unsurpassed customer service. Eleven years ago son Jamie
came on board as a part owner and Vice President, his sister Lisa followed five years
later as retail and wholesale sales manager in Ohio and, just this past year we
added Grandson Gregg to the business making the winery a three generation family operation.
As many of you now know, this April The Winery at Wilcox added a new member to our growing
family. The Winery at Hunters Valley (formerly Hunters Valley Winery) re-opened for
business officially on April 17th, 2015.
Hunters Valley Winery was founded by Bill and Darlene Kvaternik in 1987 on an idyllic
spot overlooking the Susquehanna River. They poured their energies and affection into
the winery and anyone who set foot on the property can tell.
When Bill originally approached us about purchasing the winery it was bitter sweet.
We were excited about an opportunity but deeply saddened by the circumstances leading to it.
After much deliberation we decided to take the leap.
One thing that we decided early on
is that we wanted to preserve Bill and Darlene's legacy as much as possible while still
retaining our personality as well. We are going for, "Hunters Valley with a Winery at
In this way we decided to retain the name Hunters Valley but change it to "The Winery at
Hunters Valley" to match her sisters, The Winery at Wilcox and The Winery at Versailles.
We also wanted to retain some of the look and atmosphere that Bill and Darlene have created.
Hopefully you will see that in the new look of the labels, wine list, and tasting room.
And for those worried about their favorite wines we have retained all but a few of the
wines on the list and added some that you're sure to love.
There may be many changes throughout the coming months and years but one thing we don't
plan on changing is Bill and Darlene's commitment to excellent wine and customer service.
Please come help us celebrate this new chapter for us and let us know what you think.
I can only hope that you, as well as Bill and Darlene, are well pleased.
Mike, Carol and Jamie Williams and the gang at The Winery at Wilcox, Inc.
