Oklahoma Wine Country

I am going to start out the New Year by sharing some of the travel opportunities in the State of Oklahoma. I hope it will allow you to think about your 2014 Vacation Plans and think about seeing the sites in our great state. Information from the State Tourism site:
"Immerse yourself in the rolling hills of Oklahoma’s wine country, raise a glass for a toast, and enjoy a sip of sublime relaxation during a visit to one of Oklahoma’s premier wineries and vineyards.  Scattered throughout the state, these unexpected gems combine elegant tasting rooms, impeccable landscaping and friendly hospitality to produce a unique charm on their own – not to mention the incredible variety of flavorful wines they offer.
Depending on the winery, you’re guaranteed to find a wide variety of reds such as shiraz and merlot, whites like chardonnay and pinot gris, fruit blends and more.  Indulge your senses and taste buds with a glass of wine at these wineries, and make sure to pick up a bottle of your favorite to take home. These are the top wineries listed on

Girls Gone Wine - Broken Bow

Set within the scenic beauty of southeastern Oklahoma near Broken Bow, Girls Gone Wine keeps the focus on fun.  Bring a group of friends for an unforgettable, laughter-filled time while tasting signature wines, relaxing on the covered patio, or even bottling your own specialty blend.  Savor a glass of Down Under Divas (a bold cabernet sauvignon) or Groovin’ (a delightful pinot grigio) in the tasting room, and then make your way into the on-site gift shop, where you can socialize and shop for unique accessories.  To experience winemaking for yourself, Girls Gone Wine will help you craft your own batch of 30 bottles of wine – simply come back when the wine is ripe to bottle, cork and custom label your product!

Summerside Vineyards, Winery & Meadery - Vinita

Gather a group of friends and make your way to Vinita to explore the renowned Summerside Vineyards, Winery & Meadery.  Go behind-the-scenes on a free tour of the production facilities and cellars, then head straight to the tasting room.  For a more intimate setting, book a private tour that includes a tasting of eight wines with cheese and crackers as well as a souvenir wine glass.  Pinot grigio, vignoles and chambourcin are among the wines made at Summerside, and a variety of non-alcoholic juices are produced as well.  Make sure to sample the mead, which is wine made from honey instead of grapes.  Educational and entertaining Wine 101 classes are held at this winery, as well as a harvest festival.

Woods & Waters Winery and Vineyard - Anadarko

Immerse yourself in the beauty of Caddo County’s Woods & Waters Winery and Vineyard in Anadarko, the largest vineyard in Oklahoma that boasts over 600 acres of prime countryside, rolling hills and trees.  Whether searching for a pitch-perfect shiraz or looking to satisfy your appetite with an inviting meal in the winery’s on-site bistro, Woods & Waters will accommodate your every need.  Each wine produced at this Anadarko winery is crafted from the vineyard’s 11 varieties of Oklahoma-grown grapes.  Order a scrumptious wine taster’s plate for fresh cheeses, fruits, nuts and crackers, and then pair your meal with a glass of red, white, rose or blush wine for a perfect afternoon.

StableRidge Vineyards & Winery - Stroud

Stop into StableRidge Vineyards & Winery in Stroud to savor the delights of wine in a laid-back setting. The winery’s tasting room and gift shop are housed within a former Catholic church, originally built in 1902.  Refurbished to showcase its original design, the building creates an inviting ambiance.  Chill out on the inviting patio with a glass of chardonnay or merlot, or try one of the blends such as the Harmony, a white zinfandel blend, or the incredibly popular Jeremiah’s Red, a blend of reds with a touch of blackberry.

Tidal School Winery & Vineyard - Drumright

Travel to the charming town of Drumright where you’ll find the highly-touted Tidal School Winery & Vineyard.  Housed in an historic school building built in the 1920s, Tidal School offers more than ten wines, ensuring there’s something for even the most discerning palate.  Try a traditional variety like chardonnay or cabernet sauvignon, or enjoy a refreshing blend like Oklahoma Gold or Ein Glas.  Visitors are invited to tour the on-site vineyard to witness the first stages of winemaking and the facilities where the final product is made.  Sip on a selection of wines in Tidal School’s tasting room, or take your glass out onto the patio overlooking the vineyard to de-stress while soaking in the extraordinary view.

Territory Cellars - Stroud

The rustic ambiance of Territory Cellars, located in Stroud, beckons visitors to spend time with friends in an atmosphere that provides a respite from the hustle and bustle of daily life.  Split a bottle of Black Gold, a semi-dry vidal blanc, or Pow Wow, a sweet dessert wine, with a special someone or a group of friends on the patio, or bask in the warmth of a fire by the great room’s stone fireplace.  Stick around for a gourmet meal, paired to perfection with a house wine.   Territory Cellars offers six to eight wines, as well as an array of homemade spice, soup and salad dressing mixes, making souvenir shopping an absolute breeze.
