Buck Creek Winery grew from a dream of Jeff and Kelly Durm, who purchased the land for their vineyards and began planting vines back in 1991. Gradually, the dream grew into a reality and in April of 2007, Buck Creek Winery opened its doors to an enthusiastic public.

An impressive variety of grapes are grown on the property to bring you the ultimate in tasting experiences, including Cabernet franc, Catawba, Corot Noir, Stueben, and Traminette. The result is a large array of wines sure to please even the pickiest palette. The award-winning wines have garnered attention throughout the Midwest.

One of Buck Creek’s biggest sellers is known as the Alley Cat. This unique wine possesses the flavors of cranberry and strawberry, with a spicy finish for a final kick. Other popular selections that you might not find at other wineries in the state include Blueberry, Cranberry Apple, and Christmas Cherry.
