KREUTZ CREEK WINERY
Jim Kirkpatrick is the winemaker for Kreutz Creek Winery & Vineyards. He started making wine from a kit that his wife, Carole, gave him for his birthday in 1989. (Carole truly believes that’s how the “monster” was created.) Since everyone liked the wines from the kits, Jim and Carole thought they would try their hands at growing grapes. They moved to another home with 3 acres of land in Wrightsville, Pennsylvania where they started a small vineyard. Their home was located 100 yards from Kreutz Creek — hence, the vineyard was named.
After outgrowing that vineyard, Jim & Carole purchased their current home and vineyard in West Grove, PA. The vineyard is located on 20 acres and 8 of those acres are planted with grapevines.
Kreutz Creek Winery & Vineyards is the epitome of a small, family-owned business. In addition to making the wine, you'll usually find Jim out in the vineyards working. You'll usually find Carole in the tasting room or arranging events for the winery. And if you're lucky, their dog Corky might make an appearance too!
All of the wines are made with grapes grown on the property. The wines are all bottled, labeled, corked and capped by hand.
We pride ourselves on serving high quality wines in a small, intimate setting. We want you to have the ultimate personal experience during your visit!
Jim is the winemaker, vineyard worker, wine bottler and self-proclaimed sheriff of Kreutz Creek Vineyards.
Carole Kirkpatrick (and Corky)
Ok. Carole won't let us take her picture, but we have plenty of pictures of Corky! Carole runs the business side of things and you can find her most weekends in the tasting room.
