2012 Fall Wine Festival September 15


Here in Nuyaka, Oklahoma, the year has just flown by... in spite of the terribly hot days we thought would never end!

Our festival is the 3rd Saturday in September and will be on the 15th this year. We are looking forward to seeing old friends and customers along with new friends and customers. We will have a fun filled day with wine tasting and music. Plus, we have made some improvements to the grounds that we are eager to show you.

We harvested our wine grapes early due to the extremes of our weather, but got a fairly nice crop. The weather has been hard on all the plants and a much needed rain came recently. It didn’t last long enough for us but it saved watering for the day. You can almost see the plants and birds smiling with relief.

Our hearts and prayers go out to all the folks that have been affected by the fires throughout our state. Remember them and the firefighters, many volunteers, who worked so hard to save so many lives and homes.

Stop by the winery and enjoy the fun on Saturday, September 15, 2012. We will be pouring a wide variety of made-in-Oklahoma wines and Pete will be doing vineyard tours. Map to Winery

This high water river crossing over the Deep Fork River has been closed for the last couple of years, so we are very pleased to have it open again. Vehicles less than three tons each ONLY (seriously). To learn more about Nuyaka Creek Winery or to print the map just stop by www.nuyakacreek.com. We would love to have you over to the house for visit!
