OUR STORY

1980

Owl Creek Vineyards was founded by Ted Wichmann. 

We were the first commercial winegrape vineyard in the region! 

1995

Ted built Owl Creek’s winery facility and co-founded the Shawnee Hills Wine Trail. 

2005

Ted passed the Owl Creek torch to the Genung family. 

The Genungs amped up production quantity of the wine. They also worked to improve the tasting room experience with the addition of more seating, a limited food menu and local musicians filling the air with bluegrass and folk tunes on the weekends. 

2012

After 4 years of research and development, we launched our Apple Knocker Hard Ciders.

Our focus is wine. We grow it. We produce it.
