We love spending time in the vineyard. There is just something to be said about waking up in the early morning and walking the vines, tucking shoots, and harvesting. From planning, to pruning, to training, to harvesting, we oversee all seasons in the vineyard, and for those who have tended vines, you know that being a vineyard owner is truly a labor of love.
For those interested in the specifics of viticulture, we have trained our vines using a Vertical Shoot Positioning (VSP) trellis system, a method that allows the vines to achieve optimum harvest parameters and, thus, high quality grapes for winemaking. We planted our first 2 acres in 2007, have developed our vineyard to 4 acres since then, and have room to expand to 10 acres. Our 2,200+ vines consist of five grape varietals: Marquette, LaCrosse, La Crescent, Mars, and Reliance. The first three varietals produce wines for Creekside Vineyards Winery; the latter two are table grapes to be enjoyed seasonally by guests, friends, and family.
