Our facilities for the winery began in what was
a dirt cellar under the old “packhouse” that was
built in 1941 by Elmo Johnson, Danny’s father.
The packhouse is still used today for retail sales
of fruits, jams, relishes, and jellies during
summer and fall seasons.
The winery first occupied a space of 180 square feet, which we soon outgrew. In
1997 we added 300 more square feet and 560 more square feet was added in 2001.
In the early years, we did all of our fermentation in food grade plastic barrels and to
be perfectly honest one of the first wines did have
a taste reminiscent of Dr. Pepper. The year 2003
saw additional expansion bringing the size to
approximately 2000 square feet. Along with the
expansion, we added stainless steel tanks. Due to
the nature of fruit wines, there is very little use of
oak barrels.
The first year we produced fewer than 50 cases of wine. We will produce about 3500
to 4500 cases per year. We are close to the maximum quantity we want to attain.
                                                      There seems to be no diminishing interest by our
                                                      winemakers with regard to varieties of wine.
                                                      Presently about 30 varieties are produced. With
                                                      thehelp and encouragement of many winemakers,
                                                      dedicated family, and the desire to become a
                                                      quality producer of fine fruit wines we are proud to
                                                      take our place among the finest wineries.
In 1999 we added an addition onto our home to serve as a tasting room when the
packinghouse was not open for sales. We had no idea that so many good folks
would follow the winding country road past the
cows, horses, and an occasional buffalo sighting
to share our home and wines with us. We find it
pleasant, as do our customers, to have two such
diverse “tasting rooms” as the packing house and
our home.
You most often will find Danny or Shannon doing the “tastings” for you while
Nancy can be found on the mower, tractors, or a horse tending to the farm work.
                                                      Our wine club offers a major discount for
                                                       purchases, bringing a friend who purchases, and
                                                       prizes at the end of each calendar year for the
                                                       most stamps (purchases). We also add you to
                                                      our e-mail list, if you so desire, for periodic winery
                                                      and farm updates.
We are pleased to share that we have been strong
supporters of the D-day Memorial since its’early
planning stages and continue to be. One way in which we do this is by offering D-day
dollars. When you redeem your D-day dollar, you receive $1 in discount and in turn
we donate $1 to the D-day Memorial Foundation.
