Van Roekel Vineyards was established in 1994 by Bud and Maurice Van Roekel, built after their success with their first winery, Maurice Car’rie Winery. Both Maurice Car’rie and Van Roekel wineries have their own identity, label and varietals wine list but share the same viticulturist and winemaker as well as crushing and fermentation facilities. Winemaker Gus Vizgirda produces premium boutique wines in smaller quantities at Van Roekel.
Lush picnic grounds bordered by tulips of vibrant colors mark the charming entrance to Van Roekel Winery and gallery. The tasting room is European in flavor and structure, featuring premium wines such as Chardonnay, Zinfandel, and a flirty raspberry-flavored Champagne. The winery sports unique and distinguished varietals such as a Gold and Silver Medal-winning Grenache and a multi-Gold Medal-winning Gewurztraminer that earned Best in State and Best White Wine of Competition.
The picnic grounds overlook beautiful vineyards where guests are invited to enjoy gourmet cheeses and a selection of deli items and wine. The wine tasting includes a souvenir glass!
