Buck Creek Winery's roots are in Durm Vineyards, which was established in 1991 by Jeff and Kelly Durm. They purchased the land and Jeff, with the help of family and friends, broke ground – and the vineyard was started. 1500 vines were planted the first year. Bud break came each spring after pruning. Spraying, cluster thinning, and harvest followed each year. More vines were planted, with 13 varieties in all. Wine was made for table use. In 1996, Jeff entered 10 wines in the Indiana State Fair. He won one gold, seven silver, and two bronze medals. Kelly and Jeff built their home and moved to the property with their young sons, Joseph and Chris. Josette Haubry, Kelly's mother, assisted with childcare and cooking while Jeff worked with the grapes. Josette married Dick Randolph in 1999, and they built their home in front of the vineyard. Many harvests passed. Grapes were sold to other wineries and members of the public. Members of Korean and Amish churches came to pick grapes for wine and grape jelly Read more »

  • I was right, Taste of Sonoma was a cattle call. The gates opened at 11:00, we rolled in at 11:30 and the line was longer than I have ever seen. This was half way in... Not sure what was worse, waiting in line or being treated to a woman behind me going on and on about wine, grapes, commercial harvesters etc when she had no clue what she was talk...

  • I hesitated in starting this topic, as I truly believe all wines should pair well to at least some foods.  We all experience a pleasure from those perfect pairings that we discover.. matches made in heaven :-)But what about sipping wine?  And what does that mean to people?   Here in California, it is NOT uncommon to pop open a bottle of wine to ...
