One Year Later!

It is amazing to note that Nathalie and I have now owned Oak Creek Vineyards & Winery for a whole year! It has been a year of challenges and opportunities, successes and lessons. It has also been a year of development of our plans that make us so excited about the upcoming years. I wish to take the opportunity of our anniversary to share what you can expect over the next year.

Obviously, we will never think about 2020 without thinking about the challenges of COVID-19. We were open only three weeks before having to close. We thank our staff and our customers for being patient with us and keeping us all safe.

We were also challenged by the weather. Again, this year we had negligible monsoon rains coupled with very high temperatures. Our winter rains have been disappointing so far but maybe over the next couple of weeks we will see some relief. We hope for more cooperation from Mother Nature this year!

Of course, we have been working to advance the wine program. During this year we will be redoubling our efforts to produce wines from our grapes here at Oak Creek Vineyards. Over the next few months, we are excited to be introducing the first of these wines.

We are also planning improvements around the tasting room. The planning has started. We love our outdoor patio and hopefully the new cover, misters and lights has improved your experience. We have introduced a regular music program, and plan to add even more variety this year. We intend that we will make even more dramatic changes to the tasting room and patio over the next year. We’ll keep you up to date on our thinking.

Oak Creek Team

There are so many things we want to share with you about where we are going. It was always our intention to communicate with you frequently to share our adventure with you. That is perhaps the biggest “what I wanted to do but did not get done” from our first year. We will strive for better!

We thank you for taking this journey with us. We look forward to engaging with you as we go forward into our second year. As always, we love to hear from you.

Many Thanks to all of you for a wonderful first year!
