To better understand our vision, here is a brief history of White Oak Vineyards, which is a partnership involving my husband, Chris, and myself, Jan Harmeyer, our four children and my parents, Max and Pat Brewbaker. We were originally growing corn and soybeans on approximately eight acres of land at the present site of the vineyard just north and west of Elkhart. After several visits to a local vineyard/winery, Chris began to research the possibility of starting wine grapes on our fields. Our first step involved clearing some trees in one of the small fields, which expanded it to about 2 1/2 acres. That field saw the planting of our first vines. In the spring of 2000 we planted Marechal Foch, a French-American red grape hybrid from cuttings we had propagated over the previous winter. By then we had cleared another field of about 3 acres to plant. In 2002 we planted the second field with St. Croix, another red grape. The third field was planted in the spring of 2003 with a white grape variety, Lacrescent, and the following spring the forth field was planted with a red grape, Frontenac. Wine grapes take from 4 to 5 years from the time of planting until the first crop is harvested, thus the first Foch harvest was in the late summer of 2003. In 2002 we purchased an additional 23 acres adjacent to our vineyards. It had an ideal location for a winery and lots of space for our signature grape, which we planted in 2005. Our goal is to provide you, the consumer, with some of the best Midwest wines while providing an upscale winery and quiet, scenic vista to enjoy the experience of each visit. Our mission is to accomplish this goal in a manner that is pleasing to God while satisfying our individual and company needs. It won't be long now with the purchase of our state of the art equipment and our experienced winemaker, Mike Epps! Read less
