2023 in Pictures
Pecan Creek Winery
Muskogee Oklahoma
Our first vintage of
Barrel Reserve – 2014
Bottled in 2021
On the table in 2023
Decanting red wines will help them open up when
you serve them.
We enjoy
some
spectacular
sunrises
and sunsets
around the
vineyard.
We sometimes sell used
wine barrels
Winemaking
can be messy
with spills
and leaks.
Always
cleaned up
immediately.
This bad boy “Must”
pump has a 3 inch
hose fitting and
pumps 100 gallons a
minute.
Our 1.5 hL Italian
pneumatic grape
press
Winemaking
Equipment
Wines are bench tested
and sampled before final
blending and bottling.
We ship wine to 37 states
and inside Oklahoma
Estate wines are
grown, produced
and bottled at
the winery
Estate Cabernet Sauvignon
2022
Estate Merlot
2017
Estate Chambourcin
2017
Estate Rosé
2017 from
Chambourcin
We love to cook
and pair our wines
with food
Steak & Cab Dinner
Steaks were prepared “sous
vide” and then briefly
grilled before plating.
Everyone eats well and meet new friends dining
in the cellar
Food Friday
Revenge of a leaking hose
A winemaker favorite is
our Estate Rosé made from
Tempranillo grapes.
More food and Pecan Creek
wine. Here is some
experimental bubbly
Vignoles.
A private old wine
affair
Four unopened French,
German, and California
wines were donated by
friends. Vintages from
1954 to 1962. All white.
The plan was to
open the wines
and see if they
were still
good.
A dozen
friends
attended
We knew the
old wine had
not been
stored
properly.
The Verdict
YECCHHH – It was all terribly
oxidized.
White wines oxidized
to a tan or brown
color as the 60-
year-old corks
disintegrated and
allowed oxygen into
the bottle.
Wine
Packaging
We often package wine in 1.5
Liter (same volume as 2 bottles)
pouches for people going to the
river and lake.
We also
package wine
in 20 Liter
kegs for use
at events and
sales to
bars,
restaurants
and
breweries.
Our Just
Peachy wine
is sold in
kegs to two
breweries
where it is
the 3rd
largest
selling tap
Bud
Break
Tiny little
grape
clusters
Spring in the
vineyard
We see all
kinds of
wildlife
around the
vineyard –
turkeys,
eagles, deer
Restaurant
Wine
Dinners
5K Run
Charity event benefits Kids Space
in Muskogee
The 2024 date is 9/22/2024
5K Run
In 2024, we will have the 5K run in
the morning on the same day as our
annual Grape Stomp in the
afternoon.
Come for the run. Stay for
the fun!
Events
Tahlequah Education
Foundation fundraiser
Tahlequah Farmers Market
Cabernet
Sauvignon
It starts as grapes in our estate
vineyards
It spends most of its life
in a wine barrel
Until it is
bottled. Sometimes
we can’t wait for
the labels to
arrive from the
printer 
Peerless Pears
We grow some of our
pears and
Harvest the rest
Harvest
Measurements
Squish the sample grapes in a
plastic bag to get the juice. Then
measure the sugar and acid levels
Always
Experimenting
We make small batches of
experimental techniques. These
sample batches guide the next
year’s processing. Below is whole-
cluster press on the left and
native ferment Vignoles on the
right.
We use AST – Ascorbic acid (Vitamin
C), Sulfites, and oak Tannins to
lower our overall sulfite addition
by 66%
Pressing
Matters
Left – Crushed Riesling grapes
pumped into the press
Above – Pressed Riesling juice goes in
the tank
Upper right – Pouring yeast onto 300
Do you know what’s in your
wine?
From the vineyard to the
bottle, we track
everything.
Grapes are crushed and
pumped into bins for
fermentation. We add
yeast and sometimes
nothing else but a
little sulfite before
bottling.
Dry ice and
winemaking
Dry ice is solid CO2. When pressing
white grapes, we add it to the
grapes to keep them cool and to
keep air (oxygen) out of the grapes
when crushed and pressed. We add
it to the pressed juice before it
is pumped into a tank.
What is this?
It’s an “Ooga Horn”
The original Klaxon horns on
Model-T Fords were motor
driven. This model is
probably from the 1950s and is
entirely electric, and uses 12
Volts.
We found this horn in the new
building the winery purchased
on the north end of our
property. We cleaned it up,
rewired it, and voila’ it
works.
Sunrise, Sunset
Right – Moonrise over the vineyard
Working outside with Mother Nature
and our two hands gives plenty to
be thankful for.
Grape Stomp
The victims – The
grapes we stomped
were Concord
grapes grown in
Arkansas
Above – Children having a great
time
Right – Footprint from stomping
Right – We had a large
tank for group stomping
Food Friday
Our chef prepares creative dishes
to delight your senses and pair
with our wine.
Getting ready
Miscellaneous things
Above – Vinegars we made
from Merlot and Vignoles
Our Assistant Winemaker
getting ready to pump 2021
Zinfandel from a barrel
A customer gave us a
hand-turned wooden
chalice. Perfect for
that Viking mead fest.
Making Mead
from Honey
We produce and sell
1,000 gallons of mead
every year
The boxes contain 1,000 pounds
Our three
stage sterile
water filter
and instant
heater
Christmas Party
We do private parties for individuals and
businesses. In this party, we provided
dinner, wine, and entertainment – a winery
murder-mystery event. Everyone loved it.
