Relativel;y speaking, this is a quiet time in the winery and the vineyard is asleep.We will soon start bottling the 2012 red wines. 2014 marks our sixteenth year as a commercial winery.

Turtle Creek Wine-Shares are very popular. This is a great way to insure you have a selection of Turtle Creek wines spread over a year or more. Wine subscribers enjoy many related benefits. Click on the WINE-SHARES header above for more information.

In 2014 we will participate in about twelve farmers markets, some every week, others less frequently. As the schedules become confirmed, we will post them below on our farmers' market calendar, along with the times of each market. Please come and taste our wines at a local farmers' market!

Turtle Creek Farmers' Market Calendar

We offer regularly scheduled wine tours. We do not have a tasting room or visitor center. Instead, we offer two different tours, led by the winemaker which emphasize the science and art in viticulture & winemaking.

These tours are usually scheduled on Sunday afternoons and posted here under TOURS in the header above. Reservations for either tour are required.

Now, you can choose any scheduled date and make a reservatiuon for either a MINI-TOUR, which lasts about one ahour, includes a tour of our undergrund barrel room and explores the differences in classic grapes made into wines, or the FULL-TOUR which lasts about two hours, begins with a tour of the vineyard near the winery, followed b ya visit to the fermentation room and lab. It also includes everything in the MINI-TOUR. Each tour includes a complimentary tasting.

The FULL-TOUR usually starts at 3 PM and the MINI-TOUR at 4 PM. Please go to the menu header above entitled "TOURS" to see the schedule and make a reservation; it's easy!
