M"Wines made in the tradition of times past"
Welcome to our Website
We hope that you find this interesting enough to come visit us at our winery.
How we got started:
We were partners in Mr and Ms Christmas Tree Farm from 1998 to 2002. We went to the State Christmas Tree Growers Association every year. At the convention, they had an auction. We bid on some homemade wine and Mike loved it! It was sweet and made him feel warm all over. When we were no longer able to get this wine, Mike decided to try making some of his own.
Mike got a recipe from a friend and actually turned out a very good wine the first time! Lots of people were excited about drinking it from our sprite bottles! From there on, it was experiment time on our sun porch. We bought a small stainless steel tank to make more volume of wine, and still could not keep up with the demand of our family and friends. We asked them if they would buy it if we bottled it and put a cork in it, and they said yes!
We decided to get out of our partnership with the tree farm and plant a vineyard. Several years later we started our building and here we are! We are a new winery, having opened September 23, 2006. Somewhere along the way, we won a Gold Medal for our Blackberry Grape wine in an amateur International Winemaker contest.
