              Why we named the Winery
​        “R**Bandana”("Red Neck")

With the origin of the mining industry in the Appalachian Mountains in 1883 to 1919, the coal companies controlled the miners economically, paying the workers only by scrip, tokens or credit. Miners were forced to purchase at the company store and rent the company housing plus leased the very tools they needed to mine the coal, all of which were provided at over inflated prices. Miners were forbidden to leave or shop outside the mining camp!

The conditions were so deplorable that the workers finally had an upraise starting in 1913 to 1921. 
Then in 1919 West Virginia, coal miners made a stand on Blair Mountain, where hundreds died fighting against their slave driven employers. They wore RED BANDANAS to identify themselves and earned them the nickname, ‘RED NECKS’. The term was considered an honor and at R** BANDANA Winery we are proud to be RED NECKS!
