Chapel Creek Winery – Wonderful Wines and Friendly People

· No Comments

If you are looking for something new and different to do, then you might want to go and check out the Chapel Creek Winery in El Reno, Oklahoma. This is a small little winery that is a part of the Agricultural Department of the Redlands Community College. The tours take place on the first Saturday of every month and they center around the winery itself and the old chapel that is on the property. You will learn about the history of the chapel as well as the development of the winery and the types of grapes that are grown.

After you finish your tour I highly recommend that you take the time to sit down and do a wine tasting. During this experience you will get to sample a variety of the types of wines that are bottled at Chapel Creek so that you can more accurately decide which type of wine you like the most. If you are like me, then you might actually enjoy a wide variety of wines but because Chapel Creek is grown and bottled in Oklahoma, then the grapes have a slightly different taste then most other wines. Overall I’ve found that Oklahoma wines tend to be a little sweeter than other wines, which is one reason why I highly recommend the tasting.

Another reason is that the people there are so friendly and helpful that taking the time to sit down and taste the wines is another great experience altogether. They can also help you to find the wines that work best with your palate, or maybe even recommend a wine that might not be included on the normal tasting selection. If you like you can even sit back and enjoy a glass or two while learning more about the history of Oklahoma wines.

The prices are extremely reasonable. The bottles of wine are all fifteen dollars and under, and a large glass is only five dollars. However, a downside is the fact that they are located about ten to fifteen minutes off of the interstate on the far side of El Reno. Another great time to visit the winery is during their Grape Stomp Festival. This years festival will take place on September 10th – 11th and will include live music, peaches, wine tasting, souvenir glasses, and of course your opportunity to participate in the grape stomp for only $9.95 each.
