The Oklahoman on Okemah's Grape Ranch Winery

Grape Ranch Vision - Marketing Approachable Wines in Nontraditional Ways

Tricia Pemberton writer for The (Daily) Oklahoman has written a very informative article on The Grape Ranch in Okemah.

The ranch's California-style tasting room -- atop a ridge overlooking a pecan orchard and the North Canadian River -- draws visitors from across Oklahoma and surrounding states. The tasting room is open from 10 a.m. until dusk daily except for New Year's Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas.

The ranch's facilities also are available for private parties and weddings.

Grape Ranch annually hosts the Bud Break party, celebrating the annual renewal of the vineyard; the Woody Guthrie Folk Festival in mid-July; and the Red Dirt Harvest Festival on Labor Day weekend. -- Made in Oklahoma: Grape Ranch from NewsOk.com

If you haven't visited this lovely Oklahoma vineyard yet, I heartily reccomend you check them out. Their pecan grove location and large impressive vineyard is simply stunning in the Spring and Fall. The wines are still California musts that are only aged in Oklahoma, but 2007 promises a wine from their Sauvignon Blanc vines. If their grape growing matches their marketing savvy, it should be a spectacular release.
