Open Year Round
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.
