New Oklahoma Wineries Linked

If you check out the list of Oklahoma Winery links in the right-hand column of our Oklahoma Wine News blog, you should notice a number of new Oklahoma wineries added.

Look for new entries for: Redstone Winery in Luther, OK, Native Spirits Winery in Norman, OK, Redbud Ridge Winery in Norman OK and Put A Cork In It winery in OKC's Bricktown. Good luck to all of Oklahoma's new winemakers!

Now that the local wineries have completed the crush, it is a great time to go out and visit them and taste their wines. I like to keep a case or two of Oklahoma wine around the house during the holiday season. A bottle of local wine makes a unique gift... and any that I have left over after Christmas will go right into the New Year's Eve celebration!
